Workshop "Writing Emails that Solve Problems"
Probably more often than writing papers, reports, and proposals, we engage in communication by email. This can become tricky in sensitive or problematic situations. Nobody wants to do the whole team’s work, get underpaid by mistake, or deal with constant delays in projects. How can we phrase emails so that we get what we want without making people resent us? We will discuss common Russian errors and practice strategies that can help achieve our goals and keep friendly relations with colleagues.
Speaker: Tatiana Golechkova, PhD, Assistant Professor at the Department of Humanities and Languages at the New Economic School, a Cambridge Delta qualified EFL teacher with broad experience in teaching academic writing and speaking to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as academics.

Target audience: HSE teachers, researchers, and graduate students
