Writing your literature review (for proposals and theses)


Venue: Ulwazi Training Room, Vincent Kolbe Knowledge Commons - Main Library, Upper Campus

Content: minimal input on what a literature review is, and how to decide what sort of one to construct, depending on your discipline. Students are facilitated and guided to write the headings related to this into a file, and to start writing. The writing will raise issues and questions. The presenter and librarian will be there to assist. Brave students are asked to show their work and share it with others, to get peer feedback.


Minimum entrance requirement:

Thesis topic/direction/keywords/argument & assumptions
Electronic & downloaded copies of peer reviewed key texts for review or printed out ones.

The session: 3 hours long with refreshments in between as a break, due to the fact that most of this is writing time. Situated in the library with discipline specific librarians on call (if available). Students to bring laptops fully charged as there are limited plug points at the venue.
