Research and Writing (R&W) Support Seminar

Research and Writing Support SeminarĀ 

The NASA is pleased to offer a very informal bi-annual (Spring/Fall) research and writing support seminar (R&W Seminar). The Seminar will take place in May and November 2021. The goal is to provide a space and place for people working on an American History or American Studies research paper for a course or a larger project (i.e., Senior Research Project; BA, MA or PhD Thesis), to exchange ideas and experiences, and provide clear and critical feedback on work in progress. The format is a very relaxed interactive discussion. The time frame is 90 minutes.


If you are interested in joining the Spring R&W (online) Seminar on May 18th, 2021 at 17:00, send your project proposal of no more than four pages to Nancy Mykoff at by April 25, 2021.

  1. Topic
  2. Research Question/ Thesis Statement
  3. Approach
  4. Working Bibliography (divided into primary and secondary sources)
  5. Questions/Challenges/Concerns.
