Structuring Art History: The Architecture of the PhD-thesis
The two courses in the programme, Paradigms in Art- and Architectural History and Structuring Art History: The Architecture of the PhD-thesis, focus on different problems concerning structure in written art- and architectural history.
Structuring Art History: The Architecture of the PhD-thesis focuses on ways to structure the PhD thesis. The PhD candidates will examine and discuss published examples en will also present the (provisory) structure of their own thesis to each other for further discussion. As such this course is especially useful to PhD candidates who are in their second or third year and/or are looking or working on the final structure for their thesis.
First meeting: Discussion of existing research plans, their structures, different styles and possibilities to arrange the material.
Second meeting: Analysis and comparison of recent and more historical dissertations.
Third and final meeting: Implementation of the acquired knowledge to your own research and dissertation.
