At the start of every semester, Professor Fajans and I conduct a two hour workshop to help upper level students prepare to research and write a seminar paper. This semester the workshop will be held on September 17, 2009 from 4:00 pm-6:00 pm in Room 504. Topics which will be discussed include research strategies, finding and selecting a topic, developing a thesis, framing arguments, footnoting and plagiarism.
All are encouraged to attend. For those students who cannot attend, the workshop will be recorded and made available electronically. After the workshop, copies of Professor Fajans and my handouts will also be made available electronically. Check back to this post for future updates.
