This interdisciplinary module continues to covers advanced academic skills to be developed at the Research Master level, such as refinement of acquired research methodologies, writing of academic texts (e.g., chapters of thesis, journal articles or conference papers), presenting original research and giving academic feedback to peers. The seminar aims to offer a research environment in which students can reflect on their research topic at a meta-discursive level, with special emphasis placed on methodological issues and theoretical perspectives. This course also helps students in their future careers by learning to communicate their research findings in both academic and non-academic contexts and to increase the societal significance of their research. This seminar also serves as a productive discussion space in which RMA and GEMMA students can connect with one another on academic issues and challenges.|
Students acquire skills to orient themselves in the future academic/research job-market. They learn:
- how to present their research findings in academic and non-academic environments;
- how to engage practically in societal relevant research;
- how to build academic and professional networks;
- how to engage in peer review processes.
Only open to students enrolled in the RMA Gender Studies.
