Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of this MA-Seminar is to give students an opportunity for in-depth discussion and feedback on a chapter of their MA thesis in a supportive and constructive setting.

The seminar will run as a pre-read workshop. Each day of the seminar will be divided in several sessions. Each session will be devoted to discussion of a chapter of one of the participants along with their exposé. (We will also take some time for coffee breaks!)

Students will be required to upload their chapter and expose one week before their allocated session and to come prepared to answer questions about their project.

All students will also be required to carefully read all chapters and exposes submitted by their peers and to write up two questions or comments for each chapter under discussion. These responses have to uploaded onto Moodle 24 hours before the seminar date. Each session will also be chaired by a student (this will be assigned on the day).

Attendance of all sessions is mandatory.
