Faculty Workshop on Research Writing & Publishing

You are here

The Chowdhury Center in partnership with the American Institute for Bangladesh Studies (AIBS) and the US Embassy in Dhaka host​ed​ 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 arrive​d​ in Berkeley and ​were in residence from October 11-19, 2016. After the week at Berkeley, Bangladeshi faculty travel​ed​ to Madison, Wisconsin for the annual South Asia Conference on October 20, 2016 ​where ​they attend​ed​ a pre-conference and present​ed​ 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.
