ASRW Mission Statement

At ASRW, our goal is to help you participate in the scholarly community at UBC.

Through our courses, workshops and conferences, we help students get to know the research culture shared by humanities and social science scholars all over the world.

We also demystify specific research and writing situations, including writing research proposals, giving conference presentations, and the academic publishing process.

Drawing on cutting edge theories of writing and teaching, we show you how scholars think about the world, and how that way of thinking shapes both the kind of research they do and the ways they write about their research.
