The literature review is one of the most important and prevalent documents in academic and professional writing. Designed for graduate students earlier in the research process, this workshop will provide an overview of what a literature review is and why we write them. Since one of the hardest parts of writing a review is synthesizing the literature, we will focus on using graphic organizers to synthesize studies and hands-on activities to help you develop relevant points of comparison across studies. Instructor: Lisa Sperber Lisa Sperber enjoys teaching lower and upper division composition courses, and facilitating workshops for graduate students and faculty.
