This course is open only to students who have successfully completed Academic Writing in English I.
Other students who wish to enroll should petition the instructor directly via email.
Everyone interested in the course should attend the first class meeting on Monday, February
25 and the individual consultations on Thursday, February 28. Students will be accepted into the
course based on their level of English competence and the suitability of the draft paper each presents.
Decisions on enrollment will be announced on Friday, March 1 via email.
The course aims to prepare students, through practical exercises, for the final revision of academic texts, the preparation of grant applications in international competitions, and for delivery of academic papers in English at international conferences.
Each student will revise and polish the draft of an academic paper using the principles of narrative and argumentative structure developed during the first semester of AWE. The revised papers will be the basis of an application essay for an international grant competition (mock or actual, according to student choice), and for a conference talk. Classes will be conducted as intensive workshops with students providing collegial feedback and editing each other’s work, with an emphasis on developing an argumentative structure appropriate to academic texts, grant applications, and conference presentations. The semester will culminate in a mini-conference at which students deliver their talks before an audience of faculty and doctoral candidates. Instruction and writing will be in English.
