Only students who are admitted and enrolled in the master’s programme Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology can take part in this course.
This course aims to establish the analytical connection between, on the one hand, the fieldwork experiences and the data collected during fieldwork, and, on the other hand, the theories and epistemologies discussed in the first part of the Master's programme. The focus will be on the level of analysis, the units of analysis, and the process of constructing a written academic argument.
