Writing support seminars

Mondays at 3pm

This writing workshop for Part II students aims to support you in writing your longer research pieces and engage in original writing. Michaelmas Term will be geared to help you with your primary source essays, while Lent Term will focus on dissertation writing as well as preparing for the end of year examinations in HPS.

Each session will review important concepts at the basis of academic writing, and tackle concrete problems of essay composition, including how to structure an essay, how to write a persuasive introduction and conclusion, how to harness your evidence correctly, and how to develop a compelling argument.

Every week will include a practical element, with in-class exercises designed to help you improve your reading, writing and analytical skills.
