This seminar is a "Writing Intensive" course in the undergraduate Core Curriculum, which means that we will pay particular attention to the form and content of written work, and the process of producing it. Students will receive explicit instruction in analysis and composition of research papers in historical theology, and especially in writing a thesis-based paper. There will be specific attention to types of writing pertinent to scripture studies in particular, and theological writing in general.This will include"mini-workshops" in class as well as peer and instructor review of student papers. Students will receive careful feedback on preliminary drafts of the paper (including peer review), and will be expected to provide other seminar members with feedback on their papers as well.
