Writing research articles, Oct 15 - Nov 2, 2013

Teacher: Professor emerita Elizabeth Thomson (Stockholm University & University of Wisconsin-Madison)

The intensive course is aimed at doctoral candidates who are about to start writing an article that will be included in their doctoral thesis. The participants should already have read the relevant background literature (theory and research), developed a research design, and generated preliminary analyses of their research.

The course is available to all doctoral candidates of the Doctoral Programme of Social and Behavioural Sciences, but doctoral candidates of social sciences are preferred in case the amount of registrations exceeds the number of places in the course.
During the course, the participants will attend to group sessions, work on their paper independently, turn in drafts of their paper for reviewing, and meet to discuss the paper. The paper must be completed by the end of the course at the beginning of December.

Timetable of the group sessions:
1.    Tuesday 15 October at 12-16
2.    Tuesday 29 October at 12-15
3.    Thursday 7 November at 9-12
4.    Monday 11 November at 9-12
5.    Friday 22 November at 9-12.

Place: Seminar room 471 (Assistentinkatu 7, Publicum, 4th floor)

Paradigms and problem shifts in sociology, Nov 7 – Dec 10, 2013

Teacher: Professor Wout Ultee (Radboud University Nijmegen) 

Sociological methodology has rules for testing hypotheses more severely, and for the formulation of theories rich in content. This entry presents rules for problem selection by surveying cases from sociology's past and present. Among theses rules are treating a seemingly small question as a subproblem of a larger one, expanding existing problem structures by adding new subquestions, revisiting a problem structure by new overarching question, picking out contradictions between theories and research findings and replacing false assumptions behind questions.

Students participating to this course will need to study an article for the first lecture. The article will be made available in Moodle. The course will also include weekly written assignments.

The course is intended for Master level students and doctoral candidates.

Lectures (20 h):
Thursdays weekly at 14.15-15.45, seminar room 499 (Publicum, Assistentinkatu 7, 4th floor); Tuesdays weekly at 10.15-11.45, seminar room 499 (Publicum, Assistentinkatu 7, 4th floor
