Summer Thesis Research Table

The Thesis Research Table is a weekly Zoom gathering for students beginning large, independent research projects (including but not limited to honors theses). The Table is a time to build a network of support from peers and instructional staff from the Writing Center and Library, to build skills useful for sustaining remote research projects, and to share strategies for balancing productivity and wellness in an uncertain time. Each week will focus on an aspect of the research and writing process, with topics announced through the Daily Mammoth. Drop in or attend regularly.

Hosted by Blake Doherty (Frost Library) and Jessica Kem (Writing Center)

Students Only

Do you want to share the lines you've read or written with the Amherst community? Please fill out the form: https://forms.gle/AqT9ofE76gL9edCp6 or email your response to Haoran Tong '23 at htong23@amherst.edu.

We welcome all students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents of Amherst College to participate! Help us lead a poetic life to overcome the difficult circumstances. We plan to compile all submissions into an anthology titled "Amherst Poetry in the Pandemic."
