09: Becoming Spiderman: Swing on Threads of Transition amid Webs of Argumentation

  • Date: May 14, 2021; 4pm–6pm c.t.
  • Room: via Zoom
  • Instructor: Mark Olival-Bartley, M. A.
  • Language: English
  • Registration: April 19, 2021–May 7, 2021


Consider the mobility of Spiderman, swinging, as he is wont, ever agile, negotiating traffic, vagaries of architecture, and even pigeons. Now, consider the means by which an academic argument in your field is constructed in English, swinging, you might say, ever agile, negotiating evidence, vagaries of rhetoric, and even commas. This hands-on workshop will train you to dial up your tingling Spidersense up to eleven to read the lay of the land, as it were, of academic paragraph design—from transitional phrases to sentence styles, from lexical choices to verb tenses, we’ll learn to exercise the full range of our compositional powers.

Target group: all LMU students
