Slight Change of Plan…read on

Dear ‘Writing Into Meaning groupees’ (those who have attended this term and those who might like to attend…anyone is most welcome)

We have had to make a slight change to our programming schedule due to a clash with an important Department of Education meeting on the afternoon of Wednesday November 8th 2017.  This means that there will be no facilitated Writing Into Meaning group as set out on our blog on the afternoon of Wednesday November 8th 2017.  The ESW Ground Floor Meeting Room will STILL BE AVAILABLE for your use.  This means that you can meet to write, to discuss, to enter thoughts, ideas, reflections onto the blog but Tamsin, Emily and I won’t be there.

Instead, we will run a faciliated session on Wednesday Novemeber 29th between 1300 and 1500.

This is therefore how the sessions will look for the rest of the term:

Wednesday 1st November 1-3pm (peer led) GFMR 4. What might it means to ‘master’ research writing?

Reading: MacLure, M. (2013). The Wonder of Data. Cultural Studies: Critical Methodologies 13 (4). pp. 229-232.
