BAM Joint LLD and OTCD SIG Event: Doctoral Writing Workshop

  This event is currently full.






The LLD and OTCD SIGs are pleased to offer a research-focused Doctoral Writing Workshop for students at all stages of their doctoral career. Submissions are invited from members of both the Special Interest Groups, and the event is also open to other BAM members, subject to space being available.

The first part of the workshop offers input from experienced academics who will share their experiences of reviewing for conferences and journals. Topics will include structuring introductions for maximum impact, clearly establishing your theoretical contribution, and how to structure a case study in paper/journal writing.

The second part of the workshop is designed to create a learning space for doctoral students, including those who are in the early stages of their PhD programme, to engage with experienced academics on how to prepare conference papers and publish them in high quality academic journals, as well as on more general issues of academic writing. 

There are two strands to this part of the workshop: Firstly, the workshop will provide detailed feedback to doctoral students who are in the process of preparing their papers for the BAM Conference 2018. Secondly, the workshop will offer guidance and support to doctoral students at an earlier stage in their studies, or who are having difficulties with the writing process. 



This event will take place on the 27th November 2017, 10 am – 4.00 pm
