Graduate School English Writing Lectures with Fleur Rothschild

Fridays, 9.30 Rear Second Presentation Space

The course will help students recognise the expectations associated with writing an extended analysis in a British academic context. Over six sessions Dr Fleur Rothschild will help students devise strategies for developing coherent discussions by adopting a structured, progressive approach to the writing task. The course considers the importance of incorporating evidence and alternative points of view, and acknowledging the presence of other ‘voices’ through the efficient use of a bibliography and referencing system.
