The goal of this course is for students to learn how to transform a seminar paper into a scholarly publication. At the end of the course, students will either submit their essay to an academic journal or present their essay at a national conference. During this intense six-week course, students will: 1) understand the nature of writing problems/blocking; 2) analyze key features of academic journals; 3) examine the key elements of scholarly essays (introduction, conclusion/discussion, theory, and method; 4) engage in roundtable discussions with guest speakers and writing experts; 5) learn how to resent their work effectively at academic conferences; and 6) actively work on their writing projects.
