Aims, contents and method of the course

Due to the currently deteriorating Covid situation, this course will be held online; it is currently planned to hold further courses by means of "distance learning" in the context of Zoom meetings.
The course will be held in discussion mode, i.e. no frontal lecture by the course instructor, but input from all participants. Topics covered include: 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 utilization. ATTENTION: Participation in the Anthropological Laboratory is not intended to assign topics or to find them in the first place. All participants must already be at the stage of writing, or at least of content-related preliminary research, so that appropriate input can be provided.
The purpose of this course is to give Master students the opportunity to discuss and reflect on aspects of the MA thesis with the course instructor, but also among themselves, and to critically discuss individual points of the structure, the internal structure, formal criteria as well as content-related areas. The aim is to offer assistance to the writers, to eliminate ambiguities and to give encouragement for a successful completion of the work. Due to the nature of Corona, this course is conducted via Zoom meetings, in which all participants are required to participate.
