AJS Dissertation Writing Group

The deadline to apply has passed.

The AJS is piloting an online dissertation writing program during the spring 2021 semester. All current AJS members (membership runs from January through December 2021) who are in the writing stage of their dissertations are eligible to apply. Based on the number of applications, we will divide PhD candidates into small writing groups where each member will commit to both sharing a draft of a dissertation chapter and providing comments on other members' drafts. All participants should commit to meeting approximately once a month during the spring semester from February through May. Once groups have been assigned, participants will arrange for their first meeting, at which point the schedule for presenting work for the semester will be determined as will the remaining dissertation writing group meeting dates and times. While the AJS will attempt to match participants in similar fields, we cannot make any guarantees.

The deadline to apply is Wednesday, February 10, 2021.
