In the Autumn 2021 Term, the Language Support (Språkstödet) at Dalarna University will offer a series of workshops on thesis writing. These workshops are specifically intended for students who are in the process of writing their degree thesis in English, but all students are welcome. The series consists of 4 practical workshops focused on how to write the different sections of the degree thesis. We hope to see you there!
The workshops are led by Joseph Lee, Senior Lecturer in English Linguistics, Dalarna University
Workshop 4: Writing the Abstract
The fourth workshop in the series focuses on writing the abstract of the degree thesis. We will discuss the purpose of the abstract and outline characteristics of successful abstracts. We will examine the rhetorical moves and language used in the abstract and analyse sample abstracts to better understand how to write it. Students are encouraged to bring a draft of their own abstract.
