The Fellowships & Writing Center provides feedback on various types of presentations—from conference papers, to dissertation defenses, job talks, and more. We evaluate your content (e.g., structure and argumentation), style (e.g., clarity, cadence, engagement with audience), and use of visuals (e.g., effectiveness of slides). During the academic year, students may book a slot for practice presentations on Fridays from 2:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. ET.
During the summer, please email us at email@example.com to schedule an appointment. In your email, please include your department, the type of talk you are giving, the times that will work for you, whether you prefer to give the talk in person or over Zoom, and any other information that you think will be helpful for us to know.
