Online Workshop: Go International! Academic Writing in English

This event aims at doctoral researchers and postdoctoral researchers from all areas.


This workshop offers structured and pragmatic training in academic English for researchers from all academic fields. You will get first-hand experience in academic English through guided instructions, analysis and active writing, and thus develop strategies for competent and successful publications in English. 

The workshop is divided into four modules: Module I illustrates the features of good academic English; Module II demonstrates how to turn English into a useful research tool; Module III applies the principles of good academic English to your own texts; Module IV is dedicated to revising and fine-tuning your texts in partnerwork and in exchange with me. 

At the end of the workshop, you will have produced a revised text in academic English, expanded your understanding of its formal conventions and received further instructions for honing your writing skills. I will receive text samples from you two weeks in advance. 


Dr phil Maik Goth teaches workshops on academic English, research management and communication skills. His seminars are based on his extensive experience as international scholar, academic author, editor, peer-reviewer and university lecturer, and are tailored to the personal needs and professional demands of young researchers. The second edition of his monograph Monsters and the Poetic Imagination in "The Faerie Queene" was published in May 2019 by Manchester University Press.
