This course is intended to assist students in preparing to write their MA thesis in any subject connected to history, society and culture. We explore three particular areas: methodology, practical scholarship, and particular areas of interest for the students in the group. The first strand of the course concerns methods: by surveying some recent work we consider some key thinkers and concepts in recent humanities scholarship. The second strand of the course is concerned with developing the practical skills necessary to produce an outstanding thesis: identification of a subject area and a key question, organizational structure of a thesis, research resources, and writing skills. A third strand of the course is intended to give students a head start in writing their own MA thesis: to develop possible themes for individual MA research topics, to workshop and research in their area of interest, and to further develop the practical skills and interests that students have already gained.
