Locating, synthesizing, and evaluating existing research on a topic are skills that graduate students use often in their thesis-writing. And these skills are also important to a professional career, whether in academia or industry. This workshop will focus on methods of conducting and then integrating a literature review into a thesis in a purposeful and meaningful way. In addition, you will learn techniques for ensuring that your literature review is not just a list of existing scholarship but an integral part of your thesis that benefits both you and your readers.
