Researched Argument Papers and Spotify: From Curating a Vibe to Synthesizing Sources

Event Type
Writers Workshop and the UGL - FUNdamentals
Apr 28, 2022   6:00 pm  

When you go to make a playlist, it is always important it passes the “vibe check.” Do the songs work together? How do the songs’ order and appearance in the playlist work together? Do they relate to the vibe you’re going for? Each of us has the one playlist that perfectly matches our intended vibe -- and when we write academic papers, our sources can be “vibe checked,” too. We will use the concept of playlist curation to understand source synthesis, which is an integral part of ensuring primary and secondary sources are “vibing” in our papers. 

This presentation will give concrete strategies to synthesize multiple sources within your researched argument paper. Come learn how your curated vibe playlists can serve as a template for how to synthesize your sources.

This event will be held through Zoom. It is open to current University of Illinois affiliates (students, faculty, and staff). Please register with your University of Illinois email account by 11:59pm CT on April 27, and we will send an email with the Zoom meeting invitation on the morning of the event.
