Omschrijving This course consists of two parts: part A at the end of the first year, focusing on the writing of the thesis (in the form of a publishable article), and part B at the end of the second year, focusing on the writing of a research proposal. Questions to be discussed in Part A are: how do I find a good topic for my thesis? What are the criteria for a publishable article? How do I go about writing such an article? What are places to publish my work? What is the usual procedure that boards of journals employ? We will discuss some of the do's and don'ts of researching and writing an article. In Part B we will consider - in one or two sessions - several good examples of successful PhD proposals in the past. The authors will present and discuss their proposals. In the following sessions the students will write their own proposal and present it to the group. After discussion and critical feedback, they revise their proposals and hand in the definitive version. The final grading will be 'sufficient' or 'insufficient'. The coordinator is responsible for the final grading, but each student is advised to have their proposals read and commented on by their thesis supervisors too. Usually, the proposal takes the form of an application submitted to the NWO or to a search committee at a university that offers a PhD position. Details will be given at the start of the course, as well as examples of successful proposals. One may get an idea by looking at and downloading relevant forms (see “veni” or “PhD’s in the humanities”).
