Writing an Introduction that Distinguishes Your Research

Monday, September 26, 2022 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Writers are often expected to distinguish the contributions of their work from those of others. In this workshop, we will introduce participants to John Swales’s cross-disciplinary model for articulating the relationship between one’s research/scholarship and the broader contexts surrounding it. After introducing Swales’s research-based CARS (Create A Research Space) model, we will lead a series of activities that demonstrate the “moves” experienced scholars make in their introductions. Participants should bring a writing sample that they can revise with during the workshop—this can be a journal manuscript, a seminar paper, a conference abstract, etc.  

This workshop is offered through the College of Graduate Studies Pathways to Success professional development program for graduate students. No RSVP or registration is required. See https://graduate.ucf.edu/professional-development for details.
