"Writing Effective Abstracts of Your Research"

Writing an abstract for a research project is a complicated rhetorical task that masquerades as a simple one. How do you transform a lengthy written project or weeks of research into a brief and intelligible synopsis of your work? In this workshop, we will define the role and generic features of an abstract. Then participants will draft and workshop abstracts of their research. By the end of this session, participants should have a solid working draft of an abstract to incorporate into their posters for the Undergraduate Research Symposium.
