Another Introduction

Hi guys,

My name is Hannah and I’m also in my first year in the MI program. I’m doing a collaborative program — sexual diversity studies — and I’m also probably following the LIS path. I did my BSc in psychology and biology at Waterloo. I’ve been at of school for about 2 years now so I’m a bit nervous about getting back to it.

Like Jessica, I was also interested in how much both Luker and Knight emphasize writing throughout a research project. It’s definitely a departure from what I’ve known before. I did a research methods course in my undergrad, and the structure there was more: decide your topic, read the literature, pinpoint your question, then start writing. I think it might be a good idea to start writing as soon as possible. That way, you’ll probably have much of the background of your paper written before you know it.

    Hannah,
    I came back to school after a few years away too. You’ll do great, don’t worry. It might be a bit of an adjustment at first, but it won’t take long for you get used to everything.

    My background is in Professional Writing, so I’m biased in how important I find writing. I need to put words down in order to organize and track my ideas and then cut and edit and add as I go.
