The conference abstract is a surprisingly difficult academic genre. How do you explain your project and entice your reader with only a couple hundred words? In this Get It Done lunchtime workshop, Hyaeweol Choi (Professor, Religious Studies & Gender, Women’s and Sexuality Studies) and E. Cram (Professor, Communication Studies & Gender, Women’s and Sexuality Studies) will discuss how to write a compelling conference abstract that will grab the attention of conference selection committees. Both Choi and Cram have served on multiple selection committees, and they will share their expertise on what makes an exceptional abstract.

Free and open to all, but registration is required.
