National Dissertation Workshops

The workshops feature IL/IN  or UCLA/USC areas of national strength in annual two-day gatherings at which IL/IN or UCLA/USC faculty offer critical feedback on in-progress dissertations. They are designed to enable students (both beginning writers and more advanced) to engage in intensive discussions with faculty and other students.
