The Dissertation Proposal Workshop is a chance for students at the pre- proposal stage to draw on the wisdom and expertise of a group of established OMT scholars to develop a defensible dissertation proposal. Classes and preliminary exams usually have clear structures and guidelines, but we often get little sense of how to turn our vague good ideas into dissertation proposals that will intrigue potential committee members, pass a defense, and grow into a high- quality dissertation. This workshop aims to address this gap by improving the focus and framing of research questions, identifying and addressing methodological issues, and/or constructively critiquing conceptual foundations. The workshop consists of small roundtable discussions around submitted preliminary dissertation proposal synopses between faculty panelists and doctoral students working on dissertation proposals in the panelist’s area of expertise.
