PhD-course: Creative Processes For Thesis Writing

June 10 - June 18

Your PhD dissertation is probably your biggest writing project so far. Most PhD students experience challenges during the process, such as writers’ block, problems with structure, how to address their audiences, or finding the right form for different genres (from field notes and conference papers to monographs).

This course will introduce PhD researchers to writing techniques that you can use to work through blocks in your thesis, write more persuasively, explore the value of creativity and play in scholarly writing, and edit more effectively.

The course is based at the Medical Museion (Department of Public Health, UCPH) and led by Science communication scholar Louise Whiteley and the experienced poet and researcher Dr James Wilkes, together with invited guest speakers and course facilitators. It takes a playful and pragmatic approach to making PhD writing enjoyable as well as productive. This will be achieved through a mixture of group discussions of set readings, individual and collaborative writing exercises, and facilitated solo writing time. The readings and exercises will mainly be drawn from the fields of literature, translation, critical theory and anthropology.
