The Chowdhury Center in partnership with the American Institute for Bangladesh Studies (AIBS) and the US Embassy in Dhaka hosted five faculty members from top universities in Bangladesh to participate in a program focused on academic writing and publishing in October 2016. This program brought five faculty members from Bangladeshi institutions of higher education to be in residence for one week at the Chowdhury Center, where they took part in workshops on research methodologies, writing, and the publishing process led by UC Berkeley faculty. Faculty arrived in Berkeley and were in residence from October 11-19, 2016. After the week at Berkeley, Bangladeshi faculty traveled to Madison, Wisconsin for the annual South Asia Conference on October 20, 2016 where they attended a pre-conference and presented their papers in progress. The final product, as a result of this workshop, will be an academic paper that can be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal for publication.
A summary of the workshop can be found here. Feedback from the participants can be found here.
