About the Workshop
The OSEA Ethnography Writer’s Workshop is a unique opportunity for sustained and engaged reading, editing and constructive commentary on your writing by colleagues and experts dedicated to helping you realize your publication goals in a small group setting. Each participant brings to the workshop their own project and the goal of producing a publishable manuscript as a journal article, book chapter, conference presentation, research proposal, report, or other similar product. Participants reside in the OSEA Miraflores Research Center where they are provided accommodations for writing and holding small seminars. Seminars are designed as forums for each participant to present their writing project to the group in order to exchange ideas and to receive constructive commentary. The seminars and group forums encourage the development of personal, individual exchange between participants.
