ENGL 379 - The Research Intensive: Sources, Methods, Processes

Semester Offered: Fall
0.5 unit(s)
This six-week intensive prepares students to write a thesis in English, or to undertake the kind of research required in many 300-level English seminars.  In our weekly meetings, we focus on defining a research project, identifying appropriate resources, exploring different methodological approaches, and discussing what’s at stake in literary studies. The weekly meetings also provide a space for students to share ideas and to discuss the challenges of doing research in English.  By the end of the Intensive, the students have produced a thesis or research project proposal, a 5-7 page literature review, and an annotated bibliography.  Eve Dunbar.
