Eric Ahlberg has been teaching English academic writing in German universities (previously Braunschweig and Hannover) for the last several years, including for graduates. The approach taken in his workshops and classes is that written language should not be an obstacle to understanding, but instead let your research stand out via clarity, accuracy and readability.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Eric Ahlberg also studied and worked in journalism in Canada. He came to Germany in 2010 to study his MA in National and Transnational Studies/English philology at the University of Münster.

You may contact Eric via email (erfqzmkic.a9vhlkwedbergqfyv@unk3lymi-oldevoaymnburg.de0w1r) or come to his office hours where he offers a "Schreib-Sprechstunde".

Academic Writing

As it is currently not possible to hold face-to-face workshops, you will soon find offers for English courses in online format here. We will inform the already registered participants a.s.a.p.

Editing, punctuation & Writing Abstracts

Being able to critically review your writing is a valuable skill to develop. This workshop will cover the most common mistakes, correcting them, how to revise sentences for clarity, and improve the structure of papers. We will also review some style formalities of English academic writing and punctuation, especially the comma. 

This workshop will also cover how to write abstracts, what to include and what to exclude. Although abstracts are found at the beginning of many formal academic texts, they are often one of the last things written. For conferences, they may be the only ting specifically written.

Target group

Doctoral candidates, postdoctoral researchers, and all other early-career researchers
