Seminar description

In this tutorial we will discuss and (re-)consider basic aspects of writing a (scholarly) paper or "Hausarbeit". The tutorial will be organized along three online sessions respectively dealing with the writing of an introduction, the main part of the paper, and its conclusion.

We will face questions such as:

− How can I define the topic of my paper?

− How do I structure my paper?

− What is my main question/thesis?

− How can I develop and articulate it?

− What are the necessary steps to adequately introduce, process, elaborate, and answer my question/thesis?

− How do I present my results?

− What problems do I face in the course of working on my paper?

− How can I solve these problems?
