The course also intends to offer help and guidance to students who are currently producing a master thesis or bachelor paper on the topic. Hence, anyone who has participated in Fieldwork Alaska or who has previously worked on topics that are connected to this region is invited to participate. As a methods seminar and since it is aimed towards a collective publication at the end of the course we will focus on writing techniques.
