Aims, contents and method of the course

This course is carried out by means of "distance learning" within the scope of zoom meetings on the specified dates.
The course takes place in discussion mode, i.e. no frontal lecture by the course leader, but input from all participants. Among other things, the following will be dealt with Research question, structure of a scientific paper, methods, contextual, theoretical embedding, questions about citation and the creation of a bibliography, logic, conclusiveness of content, chronology, source criticism and context of exploitation. ATTENTION: Participation in the Anthropological Laboratory does not serve to assign topics or to find them first. All participants must already be in the writing stage or at least in the stage of content-related preliminary surveys in order to provide appropriate input.
This course is designed to give Master students the opportunity to discuss and reflect on aspects of the MA thesis with the course director, but also with each other, and to critically discuss individual points of the structure, the inner structure, formal criteria, and areas of content. The goal is to offer support to the writers, to eliminate ambiguities and to encourage them to complete the work successfully. Due to Corona, this is done via zoom meetings, in which all participants have to be present.
