Kelly Centrelli, who has popped up on this blog a few times lately, has just announced a new blog that will serve as a communications hub for the ASECS graduate student caucus. Ms. Centrelli is the webmaster for this new initiative. Here is part of her description about how she and the GSC envision the blog working:
My hopes are to invite postgraduate (PhD) candidates to write on the blog—about their research, writing process, teaching, etc. Posts would only need to be a few hundred words, but will hopefully pose a question that would invite discussion on the site. Please make your students aware of the site and the opportunity to write for it. Moreover, if you have any links you feel should be on the site (e.g. journals, conferences, research sites), please let me know off-list.
The site can be found here: http://asecsgsc.wordpress.com/
There’s interesting stuff there, especially in terms of research and writing advice, which I think will be very helpful for graduate students making their way through their seminar papers, comprehensives, and dissertations. Superannuated folk like myself might also learn something from their posts, as well. Please check it out, and consider contributing to their blog.
