WHEN: February 17, 5-6 pm
WHERE: Steinberg Auditorium, Baker Hall A53

This workshop will teach you 4 steps that make the case for why your research is an essential contribution to the field. These 4 “moves” turn your research into a compelling narrative and highlight the importance and innovation of your work, especially when communicating to a non-specialist audience. These well-established moves can help you structure the abstract, introduction and literature review of journal articles and papers, in both the sciences and humanities. They can also be applied in various other contexts, including conference presentations, application materials, and grant proposals. Pizza will be provided. Visit to sign up.
