Learn to speak about your research with confidence!
Whether you are giving a conference presentation, a job talk, or defending your dissertation, as a graduate student you need to be able to speak with authority and knowledge about your research area, respond to questions, and engage in scholarly debate.
Speak like a Scholar is designed to help doctoral students develop their voices as independent scholars and give effective academic presentations with confidence.
