Kappe Workshop for PhDs
Do you need to write a "kappe" for your article-based PhD dissertation, yet struggle in how to manage this? Then this workshop by David Burke is for you! Sign up by February 12, as the number of attendees is limited.
The workshop runs for three hours, and is broken into two sections. The first section looks at the kappe itself in the current Norwegian research environment and in the context of PhD research internationally. This section is shorter. The second section is built to provide participants with the necessary framing and orientation to write a kappe appropriate to their own research and to the demands of the genre in light of the content provided in the first section.
Participants can expect to do a bit of preparation in advance, and to work with their own projects during the session. The workshop is hosted by David Burke.
