The research colloquium will be held as a bloc seminar and provides students with a MA or PhD thesis project to prepare for, reflect upon as well as discuss important steps in a research thesis writing process. Focal points are: (i) from research idea to research question, (ii) identifying and reviewing the state of the art, (iii) making theory work / operationalising concepts, along with (iv) from selecting methods to data management. The colloquium will consist of face-to-face sessions as well as periods of self-study, after which written assignment need to be submitted for feedback. The final component is the bloc seminar session “Museum Walk” where students can present their research design or work in progress in a poster format while the remaining participants serve as discussions and provide constructive feedback.
