Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The seminar is addressed to students of English who are currently writing on an M.A. or a Ph.D. thesis in the fields of English literature and/or cultural studies. The seminar will give students the opportunity to present their projects and to discuss key issues or unsolved problems in class. It will offer practical guidance for approaching a topic as well as advice for writing a research paper and will also alert students to the pitfalls of plagiarism. Moreover, the seminar is intended to advance students' knowledge of conventional and computer-based research methodologies and will also familiarize students with the requirements of the final oral exams (mündliche Diplomprüfung) on the basis of examples from previous exams (topics and reading lists).

The actual schedule for the individual meetings will be fixed at the first meeting.
