Graduate and Postdoc Workshops

The Hume Center provides free writing and speaking workshops on general strategies, as well as genre-specific support for graduate students and postdocs from all disciplines. Topics include research statements, journal articles, multimedia presentations, and more.

Until further notice, all graduate and postdoc writing workshops will be offered virtually through Zoom. Zoom links for upcoming workshops and electronic materials for past workshops (e.g. slides, handouts, videos) are available on our Canvas site.
