Building Research Confidence in the Humanities: Approaches to Reading and Reviewing Scholarship in the Humanities
About the presentation:
There's always more to read than hours in the day. How can you keep up with reading the relevant scholarship in your field? How do you decide what scholarship to devote significant time and energy to reading? When might your approaches to reading change over the life of a project or across projects?
In this workshop, we'll talk about and practice reading scholarship strategically, including developing techniques to read for a variety of purposes.
About the speaker:
Janel Simons, Humanities Librarian
The target audience for this series is graduate students in the humanities who are starting out in advanced research or who want to level up their research skills at any time in their graduate program. Examples, tools, and points of reference will speak to research in the humanities and focus on research at the graduate level and beyond. While we want participants to be aware of this target audience to help set expectations, all UNL students, faculty, and staff are welcome.
About the series:
The UNL Libraries is excited to launch the workshop series "Building Research Confidence in the Humanities." Covering topics ranging from finding and organizing primary materials, locating and managing scholarly sources, and analyzing resources, to making decisions about presentation and publication, this nine-session series will introduce humanities researchers to a range of tools, resources, and techniques for growing their research practice.
