Departmental Writing Fellow


Kate Rose, 2020-2021

Hi everyone! I am a PhD Candidate in the archaeology program and I am very excited to be serving as the DWF for anthropology this academic year. I am available to all undergraduates taking courses in anthropology (social anthropology and archaeology classes) and thesis writers. I can help students with any and all writing concerns and projects including forumalting an argument, essay/assignment structure, integrating research and scholarly literature, editing drafts, and writing specifically for the discipline of anthropology. 

Schedule an Appointment 

I am happy to work on an individual basis with students, at any stage of the writing process. Contact me via email (katherinerose@fas.harvard.ed) to schedule a 30 minute appointment to review your work. I encourage international students (and students currently residing in different time zones) to reach out as well. 

Instructions for Students Seeking Draft Feedback

If you are contacting me with questions about a specific class writing assignment, please include a draft of the assignment in your email as well as the assignment prompt. 

For senior thesis writers, I am happy to review draft proposals as well as individual chapters. For each 30 minute appointment we will be able to cover one thesis chapter, so please keep this in mind when scheduling.
