Course Syllabus

Abstract

This course aims at providing guidance in writing MA dissertations. The Research seminar elaborates on diversity of methodologies of possible usage and strengthens research skills. In the first year, this research seminar teaches students basic aspects of a historian’s craft. The course consists of five modules: 1) History in Practice: Research Skills; 2) Academic Rhetoric; 3) Oral History; 4) Visual Methods in History; 5) Crafting Research and Writing
Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives

  • In the second year, besides presenting original research, students are expected to contribute to discussing peers’ works. Every project presented will undergo internal peer-review. At least two reviewers will be assigned to each student. Effective analysis of historical evidence is a crucial aspect of the historian’s craft, and a major requirement for satisfying gatekeepers within the discipline. Therefore, an MA dissertation should demonstrate a student’s ability to critically engage with sources.
