The literature review is one of the most important andprevalent documents in academic and professional writing. Designed for graduate students earlier in the researchprocess, this workshop will provide an overview of what a literaturereview is and why we write them. Since one of the hardest parts of writing areview is synthesizing the literature, we will focus on using a spreadsheet tosynthesize studies and hands-on activities to help you consider relevant pointsof comparison across studies. This workshop is half presentation and halfwriting and discussion.
