You've read widely on your topic and you're ready to
write your literature review, but how do you structure the review so it does justice to the
literature, is relevant to your research and makes sense to the reader? Conventions vary by discipline and
sub-discipline, but all literature reviews need a strong narrative thread. This
workshop de-mystifies the literature review, helps you identify the purpose of your review for your reader, and offers
techniques to develop the clear and coherent narrative that is such an
important part of your project.
This workshop will be run by Anne Wilson. Anne has a background in
journalism (features) and corporate communication (scripts, speeches,
screen media copy), combining her writing with facilitating writing
workshops in HE. She was Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Brunel University
for three years, and now runs workshops on academic writing and
professional communication for postgraduates and staff at Brunel and
other universities. She also coaches students for the 3MT competition
(won by Brunel in 2017). She has recently collaborated with the Brunel
Occupational Therapy department to investigate what kind of feedback
helps students to improve their academic writing.
