Writing seminars are theme-based workshops that seek to improve students’ skills in writing for academic purposes. Particular attention will be paid to documentation and the use of secondary sources; close reading and textual analysis; and scholarly personal narrative. Assignments will include the examination of texts on writing craft; review and analysis of published texts in various styles and genres; discussion; peer review; and proofreading and revising original works. Writing seminars share themes with global seminars, but they are delivered and graded independently. Cross-listed as GSW 105.
