The basic structure of this course is such that students choose and critically discuss a given academic text connected to their specific research area and field of work. In the course of the seminar they thus critically reflect on their work and that of other students embarking on exactly the same process. In the selection, presentation, and discussion of, and refection upon, these texts, they tackle questions related to the meaning of authorship; positioning; (auto)biography; the body; the routines, habits, and rhythms of life; the experience of space(s); discursive representation and therefore also production; forms and networks of power and historical, local as well as global contextualisation of different research thematics, methods, and findings. Emphasis is also given to inductive as well as interdisciplinary approaches and the development of one’s sociological imagination.
