Academic writing has a high priority in the courses and modules of the Anglophone Literature and Culture division. Writing critically about aspects of literature and culture is not something that comes naturally - we all have to practise and improve our research, our writing and our analytical skills. These pages help students find their way through the highways and byways of reading and writing critically. They address key points on writing an academic term paper and writing a BA or Master's thesis, and also give insight into previous papers and theses.
