Dissertation De-stress Kit

Thursday, Oct 20, 2016 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm

You’ve passed your qualifying exams and you’re poised to begin work on your dissertation—but you’re having trouble getting started. Or, you’ve worked steadily for months, but find yourself in a slump. Now what? If you’re holed up in YRL (or at home) with a stack of books and your laptop, staring at the cursor, then this workshop is just what the doctor ordered! Using participatory design techniques, we’ll brainstorm practical strategies for motivation and inspiration, building a portable “kit” designed to keep yourself going until you are PhinisheD!

Taught by Zoe Borovsky, Ph.D. Librarian for Digital Research and Scholarship, and Nina Mamikunian, Humanities and Social Sciences Liaison Librarian.
