Workshop "Find your voice"
To publish a research article, the author needs to highlight their contribution and provide their argument in a convincing factual manner.
In the workshop, we will talk about Anglo-American rhetoric conventions and discuss how to "own" a text, making authorial voice strong. We will focus on such descriptors as
• self-identification expressions
• references to the available resources and their combination
• responses to other voices.
They all indicate the quality of the author’s voice and the writer’s presence in the text. We will analyze model samples and work on your texts to emphasize your autonomy of thought.
