Each year the Writing Across Boundaries Project runs an intensive, two-day, residential workshop for social science PhD students in their third year to explore analytical and practical approaches to writing and offers participants an opportunity to reflect on the writing process itself as a form of social science thinking.
The next Writing Across Boundaries workshop will take place on 27th-28th March at Collingwood College.
The workshop is targetted at PhD students in the social sciences in their third year of study, who:
· Are interested in the practice and product of ethnographic writing as a particular way of conveying a contextual understanding of lived reality by drawing on a range of specific methods including, for instance, participant observation, semi-structured interviews, archival research, visual analysis, life-histories and surveys.
· Are at the point of translating this data into written out-put for a thesis; and
· Have completed their fieldwork and have data that they have begun to process.
