Aims, contents and method of the course

This seminar forms part of the KFK (Module 4). Students will prepare and present their reports on subtopics pertaining to the seminar's overarching theme (the latter will be announced closer to the kick-off meeting on 27 October 2016, 1.15pm (SR 5).

Assessment and permitted materials

Your final grade will be determined based on three components:
Class participation, group report, and presentation of your report on class
Teams of two (max three students) will work jointly on pre-assigned subjects (to be announced during the kick-off meeting, date tbc). Topics will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis, and each topic will only be handed out to one team. Teams working on survey topics may receive links to selected starting literature, however, we irrespectively expect that the teams’ final reports will go significantly beyond summarizing the initial references provided by us; in fact, we expect teams to provide a synopsis of relevant literature in the field, potentially support their claims through expert interviews if appropriate and feasible, and through the use of available data.
Seminar reports (30 pages, Times New Roman font, 12’’, double-spaced, excluding references and appendices) must be handed in electronically via Turnitin (add details pls) until TBA January 2017. Teams will present their research (-.ppt presentation) for 75 minutes (including Q&A) on one of the seminar dates (18-20 January 2017) and will attend ALL other team presentations during the seminar.
