AHSS Workshop on Academic Writing

AHSS Workshop on Academic Writing


Lynn P. Nygaard, PRIO (Oslo)

Academic discourse is a big, noisy dialogue that takes place mainly through scholarly journals and books. How do you make your voice heard? This two-hour seminar will take you through the basics of writing for a scholarly audience, with a focus on audience, core argument and structure. It also touches on developing good writing habits, as well as giving and receiving feedback.

Facilitator Lynn P. Nygaard has provided editorial support and coaching for researchers in a wide variety of disciplines for more than two decades. Currently based at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), she helps researchers develop grant proposals, shape their arguments and tailor their work for publication. With an undergraduate degree in women’s studies from UC Berkeley and a graduate degree in political science from the University of Oslo, she is currently pursuing a doctorate from the Institute of Education, University College London, that focuses on research productivity, academic writing, and gender gaps in academia.

The workshop is based on Nygaard’s book Writing for Scholars: A Practical Guide to Making Sense and Being Heard.
