Research Design and Proposal Writing in the Social Sciences

This course (strongly recommended for 2nd year ANSO Master students) is a class on research design in the social sciences. Students will learn how to relate their cases and observations drawn from fieldwork (observation, interview, or archives) with theory and conceptual debates. Students are encouraged to come to class with a research idea in mind, or better, a draft of a research proposal. Throughout the class, students will write small assignments that will allow them to produce a research proposal by the end of the class.
