The path to a research paper

3. August 2023

Grundlagen-Blockveranstaltung im Sommer 2023

Instructor: Jun Chen
We are offering a new block seminar to teach students how to bring about a proper (empirical) research paper.
Anyone who is interested in improving their writing skills is welcome to participate, especially students who have a research topic in mind and are having a hard time understanding the best way to present it in writing.  We are targeting students who are from BA Linguistik, BA Germanistik / Lehramt Deutsch, BA Anglistik / Lehramt Englisch, BA Romanistik, students of philosophy who are interested/interacting with linguistic curriculums, MA Sprachtheorie und Sprachvergleich, MA Digital Humanities, MA English and American Studies/English Linguistics.
