Created by SYSTEM Manager
Saturday, 11/19/16 12:00nn


Those embarking on academic careers must master the art of writing proposals for research funding. Whether you are conducting research for a dissertation or book or seeking support for a special project-locating and securing funding is critical. This workshop will provide expert guidelines on how to write compelling proposals from the initial phrasing of the research question, step by step, to the research outcomes, significance, dissemination, and public outreach. It will also address such issues as identifying and working with funding agencies, effectively communicating research methodology and goals, preparing budgets, and planning for the dissemination of results. The workshop will be led by Suad Joseph, Professor of Anthropology and Women and Gender Studies, University of California at Davis. She has taught proposal writing and lead workshops for students, faculty, administrators, and NGO practitioners for over 30 years. Information about proposal writing may be found on Dr. Joseph's website at http://sjoseph.ucdavis.edu/arab-families-working-group-1/images/files/ComponentsofaHumanitiesSocialSciencesResearchProposal.pdf. Please sign up for the workshop in advance by sending an email message to Mark Lowder at mark@mesana.org.
