Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Doctoral candidates in the social sciences are often confronted with the problem of having to locate an empirical case study within a theoretical framework. As experience shows, there is a danger that in these cases theory is reduced to a merely decorative status. In the same sense in which the goal of an empirical case study should not be to simply illustrate theory, a theoretical framework should not be understood as decoration for an empirical case study. The aim of this Kolloquium is to test out and discuss the tricky relation between the empirical and the theoretical. To achieve this, a “safe space” will be provided in which candidates will have the opportunity to freely discuss problems related to the research design of their projects.
