Taken during the final year of doctoral coursework, this workshop will familiarize students working on the journal article requirement with basic practices related to publication: revision/expansion of essays; rhetorical forms and structures of essays; selection of journals; submission to journals; revision and resubmission; and, on the journal side, how editors and reviewers read and respond to submitted drafts. The workshop will also help students hone some best practices for organizing, sustaining, revising, refining, and enjoying your writing and your approach to writing.
In this colloquium, required for the Politics, Culture, and Identity Graduate Specialization, students attend 4-6 talks whose subjects relate to the core concerns and disciplines of PCI and then meet to discuss them. The colloquium brings students together as a cohort as they build a sense of (inter)disciplinary structure, variety, and dialogue.
The Politics, Culture and Identity (PCI) Graduate Specialization trains PhD students through cross-disciplinary seminars, dissertation advising, dissertation workshops and colloquia to develop methodological and theoretical tools to analyze political phenomena through culture, narrative and identity.
