Workshop on Writing the Literature Review

Conducting a literature review involves critically reading and writing about prior scholarly work pertinent to a research project. As such it is a key part of the research process and therefore important for doctoral students to understand.

This workshop offers a framework for approaching literature reviews, strategies for reviewing literature, as well as style tips. The workshop will include short teacher presentations and practical exercises, including a peer feedback activity.

Students should bring up to 200 words of a literature review in progress from a research article or a chapter of their dissertation (in Danish or English).
