Uitgebreide vaknaam Themes, Trends & Topics
Leerdoelen Students can apply their knowledge and understanding in a manner that indicates a professional approach to their work and have competences typically demonstrated through devising and sustaining arguments and solving problems within their field of study. They have developed those learning skills that are necessary for them to continue to undertake further study with a high degree of autonomy
Omschrijving At the end of this course the participants formulate and discuss a research proposal on
questions in their field. Before reaching that point the students will obtain insights into
the way research themes develop, are being conceptualized, defined by epistemic communities, which sometimes institutionalize into scientific communities.
After some introductory lectures, students identify a recently new theme or topic of their choice and will study its development. The students will be asked to trace how the topic came into being and what epistemic communities have been organized around it. This trace must include issues such as, where and when were the seminal ideas of this topic conceived, when and at what kind of meetings and conferences were these ideas presented and discussed, who have been the mayor players in these communities and what was their background, what mechanisms for knowledge formations have been developed and what have been the main vehicles for knowledge dissemination.
The main corpus of material is formed by conference proceedings, working paper series, journals and monographs.
