Department Section Description: 

This course provides a rigorous introduction to scholarly writing and speaking through the process of conceiving, researching, writing, and revising one long paper and presenting this work as a conference paper at the end of the term. We will also analyze, discuss, and workshop components of scholarly writing; discuss trends in academic literary, media, and cultural studies; consider the range of careers available to job seekers with a Ph.D. or M.A. in English; and go over what it means to be "professional" in graduate school and in academic and related careers.
