Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The purpose of this course is to guide students in preparing their MA research. As such, the seminar provides a framework to travel collectively through the process of writing a proposal within which students are expected to work individually towards their goals. Topics addressed can include finding researchable questions, suitable theoretical literature, ethical questions and designing an effective fieldwork plan. The students are expected to work on their research proposal and present it in class at least once. Openness to constructive criticism, but also to engagement with ideas of peers are crucial aspects required for successful participation.
The aim of the course is a sophisticated understanding of proposal writing for ethnographic research. The ultimate outcome will be a fully developed research proposal at the semester’s end.
