Most graduate academic genres—theses, dissertations, journal articles—require an argument supported by scholarly evidence. But, finding and sharpening your argument can be one of the most challenging parts of the writing process. This workshop will present how to find your “entry point” (Belcher, 2009) into an argument and how to consider audience, structure, and context when crafting one. The workshop presenter will also discuss the common pitfalls of argumentation in scholarly work and discuss strategies for overcoming them.
