Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This is the fifth semester under the conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic. There are at least two things we have learned during that time: that 100% online teaching is not the best option for some courses, and that it is impossible to predict how Covid-related restrictions will de-velop. For this course, we thus follow this basic principle: It will be taught in presence as long as this is possible, and we will switch to online teaching if necessary.
What does that mean for you? (1) To participate, you need to be in Vienna. (2) It might be a good idea to get vaccinated. (3) Be prepared for online teaching, i.e. have a stable internet connection, a computer with a webcam, speakers and a microphone (or a headset), and reg-ular access to Moodle (will be granted to you automatically once you are registered for this course). Before registering for this class, make sure you meet all these requirements.
More than ever, it is important that you check for updates regularly. I will communicate with you through the messaging board on Moodle; make sure you receive emails sent to your u:net account!!!

Contents
The seminar is an important step in guiding the preparation of an MA or PhD thesis in East Asian Economy and Society (EcoS). It should thus only be attended in the third or fourth semester of the MA program, or at the beginning of the PhD program. Furthermore, you must already have a topic for your thesis in mind.
The seminar leads you through the key components of the theoretical part of your thesis. Make sure to have watched + understood the related Youtube videos, available at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrjd90J0GnYYOW4QSiaeGew
The tasks to be completed during the seminar include: Presenting and defending your top-ic/title and research question; the relevance of your research question; the structure of your literature review; your literature review; your analytical framework. The seminar thus leads right into the preparation of the actual thesis.

Assessment and permitted materials

Workload and Assessment
You will have to fulfill a total of four assignments. Each of them counts as a minimal require-ment (“Mindestanforderung”) and must be graded at least “4” in order to pass the course. Details on each assignment are available on Moodle.
Assignment 1: Topic/title and research question.
Assignment 2: Relevance of your RQ.
Assignment 3: Structure of the literature review.
Assignment 4: Literature review.
Assignment 5: Analytical Framework.
Late submission: Late submission is not allowed. Failure to submit on time will result in grade 5, which means you will fail the whole course.
