KEY ISSUES IN SOCIAL THEORY AND RESEARCH
Credit points: 30
This seminar series aims to support the apprenticeship of Sociology, Anthropology and International Development students into social science research in four primary ways. First, it provides a clearer sense of how sociological and anthropological research is connected with broader fields of knowledge and discussion, including understandings of disciplinary boundaries, bodies of published work and the negotiation of ethical standards. Second, it presents opportunities to learn how currently active research academics pursue their own research programs and undertake the application of theoretical and methodological approaches to social and cultural issues. Third, it provides a sense of the diversity within the disciplines as well as between the disciplines. Fourth, it provides exercises aimed at developing your writing and critical thinking skills.
