Tracing Arguments is a one-day postgraduate researcher-led workshop that aims to provide a peer-review platform for PhD students at all stages of their research.
Following an introduction by a panel of academics offering their insights and approaches to argumentation, workshop participants will work in small groups to discuss one another’s writing, exchange ideas for best practice, and formulate points of constructive criticism in relation to issues of argumentation.
Workshop participants will be expected to produce a piece of writing in advance, as well as commit to reading the work of two or three other postgraduate researchers from the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies.
This workshop provides an excellent opportunity to improve on writing that is a work-in-progress, in a safe and supportive peer environment.
