Faglig innhold

The aim of this module is to assist students in planning and undertaking the initial phases of dissertation work. They will learn about processes of choosing a topic, of defining the ethnographic field and of delimiting research questions which will orient their perspective throughout the dissertation. They will work on researching relevant secondary sources including visual and other material as well as literature on the theme, and identify the methodological and theoretical approaches which seem most appropriate. They will write a plan for their dissertation field work, and an outline for the dissertation. They will put together a bibliography, identify the field, methods, a research question and dance material that they aim to study. They will also discuss theoretical issues related to their methods, research question or the field.

*Choosing and defining a dissertation topic
