In this Brain Food workshop session, we focus on one of the most difficult parts of a thesis or dissertation to write, the literature review. Please bring your laptop, if possible.
Topics covered will include:
- Gathering and Reading Literature: A good thesis demands a good literature review, and that means finding and critically analyzing key literature in your field. In this session, learn some methods for finding and evaluating literature in order to select relevant and authoritative sources. We’ll also be discussing the use of Zotero for citation management.
- Writing the Literature Review: Your literature review is a key component of your thesis or dissertation. This session will discuss how to connect the literature review to your argument, build the structure for your review, and avoid some of the common traps when writing.
