About the course
Each module consists of one general and one specific part. The first part introduces the field, key concepts and theories, important findings and main controversies through a series of lectures and seminars with fixed content/readings. The second part consists of individual work on a more specific topic within the wider area, in which students in dialogue with the teacher(s) select and review a particular research field. The reviewed material can be either secondary or primary. Teaching in the second part is organized as a series of supervision workshops where students and teacher(s) meet and discuss selection and assessment of their respective research fields.
Every autumn two of the following modules will be available for students. The two modules will be offered in succession. Two months before the course starts the two modules will be announced.
