Ronan Crowley, English

"I enjoyed having a time set aside dedicated to writing, andconsistent group of colleagues for support; what a great way tomeet new people, make friends, and form new networks within theUniversity. I found it beneficial because not only did it set asidethat time on Monday for writing, but it helped to keep mydissertation prospectus at the front of my attention, whichmotivated me to write throughout the week, as well. By the lastmeeting of the group, I had completed my prospectus. I hope to beinvolved again in the future!"
Sarah Handley-Cousins, History

"The Gender Institute's dissertation writing workshop provided mewith a unique space to unplug and focus on my work. As a teachinginstructor it is hard for me to find the mental distance to reallybe able to focus on my dissertation, and the workshop managed to dojust that. Just as important as having the scheduled time and spaceto work on my dissertation was the fellowship with other womenworking on their dissertations. From conversations aboutdissertation writing strategies to fellowship applications to howto deal with teaching problems, a healthy life-work balance, andthe constant need for chocolate and caffeine, the community ofwomen that the dissertation writing workshop provided really made adifference in my life. It certainly started out the week on apositive note and gave me energy to get through the rest ofit!"
Tanja Aho, Transnational Studies

When I joined the groupI had barely started Dissertation Formatting...at the end of theGender Institute Workshop, I had submitted four of my sevenchapters with a total of almost 125 pages. On average I would write700 to a 1000 words every Monday morning that would motivate me togo to the library and continue working."
