This week, TCU's WBH RSA met to learn more about tackling the dissertation prospectus, a genre not only helpful for writing the document required for PhD students to earn their degrees, but also for proposing other large projects such as books. Members Rachel Chapman Daugherty and Nick Brown led the discussion, informing attendees of their process and offering their most helpful tips. TCU rhetoric and composition faculty were also there to provide advice and support. Through discussion and audience questions, the idea of the prospectus (what it is, why it matters, and what it does) were all made much clearer.
The Winifred Bryan Horner Rhetoric Society serves as the student chapter of the Rhetoric Society of America at Texas Christian University. In addition to sponsoring events that further rhetorical scholarship at TCU, the WBH Rhetoric Society also supports the Winifred Bryan Horner Reading Library in the TCU Graduate Instructor office. The WBH Rhetoric Society was founded by TCU English graduate students in 2011.
