Perspectives from SLA Students on the Dissertation

Presentations from SLA Dissertators Isabelle Drewelow and Sookyung Cho
Introduction and discussion facilitated by SLA Co-Director Diana Frantzen

4:00 pm, Tuesday, November 27
1418 Van Hise Hall, 1220 Linden Drive

The transition from taking courses, writing papers and studying for exams to researching and writing the dissertation can be an exciting and intellectually invigorating time.  It can also be lonely and sometimes overwhelming.  The SLA Program encourages students at the dissertation stage to share their ongoing work and experiences with other students in the program, especially with other dissertators.  To begin, on November 27, SLA dissertators Isabelle Drewelow and Sookyung Cho will give informal presentations on their dissertation projects and share their experiences on the process.  Then, we will discuss ways in which dissertators might extend and adapt the model of the prelims study  group to the dissertation stage of doctoral studies.  All SLA students are invited to attend; dissertators are particularly encouraged to come.
