Omschrijving This course provides an in depth approach to theoretical and practical questions involved in complex historical research methodologies. Regarding methodology as a set of postulates, procedures and rules by which historians frame questions, select sources and interpret them in order to formulate scientifically convincing answers, this course will focus on the interconnectedness of questions and presuppositions, interpretation strategies and on the systematicity of formulating answers. Starting with a thorough introduction in the theory of methodology, this course will explore complex qualitative and quantitative methods in current historical research. In addition, training in employing the possibilities and understanding common pitfalls and logical fallacies will be provided by analyzing of complex research procedures employed in current historiography. In this context, students will be challenged to develop alternative research procedures.
