Détails de l'événement

As academics, writing is integral to the work that we do. Our writing journeys begin with the writing of our doctoral dissertations, and continue as we later write research articles and conferences papers, books, and funding applications. Our identities and reputations as academics are largely formed on the basis of what and how we write. Many would argue that the fate of our careers rests more on our ability to write than on our ability to teach. And yet despite this, we spend very little time thinking about how we write. Most of us have received little, if any, formal instruction in academic or other forms of writing— probably because it is generally assumed that anyone undertaking graduate studies already “knows” how to write.

 

For these reasons and others, writing is something that most of us just “do.” This doing might come easily if we are blessed with a natural ability to write, or it might be difficult, if we are not. Most likely, our experience lies somewhere in between: moments when writing flows almost effortlessly punctuated by bouts of writing paralysis. Although we may be prompted to think about our writing at such times, the reality is that most of the time, we do not.

 

In this workshop, I offer students the opportunity to become more reflexive about their writing practice, by making their own writing habits and practices explicit and by contrasting these with the writing practices of known scholars in our field. We will consider the multi-faceted aspects of academic writing, and how each contributes to both writing quality and productivity and by so doing, expand our personal repertoire of practices and approaches for producing meaningful texts.  

 

Charlotte Cloutier is currently Associate Professor of Strategy at HEC Montreal. Her main research focus is on understanding strategy processes as they unfold in pluralistic organizations (NGOs, trade associations, hospitals, universities, large and decentralized multi-national corporations, government ministries or agencies, etc.), notably from a strategy-as-practice perspective. As a side hobby, she is also passionate about writing. She is the host of a blog on academic writing: www.projectscrib.org ; has hosted and organized various workshops on academic writing and publishing and has written various articles on the topic.
