Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The content of the course is centered around psychology of art/ empirical aesthetics in line with our focus at the EVA-lab: https://aesthetics.univie.ac.at/

Our overarching topics will be:
Art & Emotion
Art & Cognition
Art & Brain
Art & Field

You will pick one of these broad topics to write about for the final written essay (see below).

The aim of the course is to teach you the skills you need to succesfully complete your bachelorthesis ("Bachelorarbeit") in the next semester during the "Bachelorarbeitseminar".

This means that the aim of the course is to teach you how to:

- search for literature
- read critically
- formulate a research question
- outline a paper
- plan your writing
- give & receive/use feedback
- write a paper

Or, shortly said, to "search, construct, and write".

Since this course is a prelude to the Bachelorthesis, the final output of the course is a written essay. This essay will form the Introduction of your Bachelorthesis. I.e. It will specify a research question and provide a literature review for this question.

In the Bachelorthesis seminar we will then focus on "design, analysis, and interpretation" as core skills, and work from the research question towards a study design, data analysis choice, and data interpretation.
Note that the Bachelorthesis seminar will not require/include the collection of data. Rather, we will focus on the choice of an appropriate analysis and interpretation.

Assessment and permitted materials

Most course material and presentations (by me) will be given in English. However, the class will include a lot of discussion & participation in class which, of course, can be done in German. In addition, I will also allow you to hand in your (written) assignments in German.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Detailed requirements will be given in class.
Minimum requirements are class attendance with maximum of two missed sessions (without special arrangement made with lecturers before missed class).

Examination topics

To be announced in the course.

Reading list

To be announced in the course.

Note that I will provide you with some "Basisliteratur" (see below) to get you started but that since part of the class is to teach you how to search and find your own literature most of the reading you will do will be literature you have found yourself.
