Date: Spring 2019
Location: Amsterdam, TBA
Participants: PhD students (2nd year and on) who are affiliated with the Huizinga Instituut
Lecturer: Prof. Joep Leerssen
Theme: The tension between the usage of sources (secundary literature) on the one hand, and a researcher’s will to present a completely original research – which is even one of the official academic prerequisites of a doctoral thesis – on the other hand.
Participants are requested to prepare a presentation from 5 up to 10 minutes on their own experiences with this ambivalence.
Further information to be announced.
