Event: Graduate and Professional Student Development Workshops

Dear Graduate and Professional Students:

Here’s the Professional Development sessions for the rest of the quarter. Please note we have added a few new events. This coming week have six presentations.

Also, we recognize that many students would like to attend some of the professional development sessions, but, have time conflicts. We are committed to reaching as many students as possible and so have worked with the UW libraries to make the sessions available. Here’s the link:

Collaborating and Co-Authoring

Feb 15 from 11:30-12:20

Many scholars enjoy co-authoring because doing so affords an opportunity to develop new ideas, extend our methodological toolkit, and share the workload.  If you hear of such an opportunity, or see a call for papers that you would like to answer, you may also pitch a co-authorship opportunity to other students or faculty. Whether or not they accept your invitation will depend on how thoroughly you’ve considered the workload, authorship credits, and of course, the intellectual fit.
