Thinking Through Thesis: A Series of Workshops for Grads
Sundays, 3:00-6:00 pm, Macaulay Conference Room, Fleet Library
These workshops are designed to break down the written thesis book process into approachable pieces, open up new avenues for expression, and align thesis writing with studio work. The series is also an opportunity to get feedback from a diverse group of peers across departments in a relaxed, open environment.
All graduate students are welcome. The first and last workshops are open. The middle three are a series requiring full attendance; maximum 10 students. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
