Study materials

For each seminar the students read 2 articles beforehands (TBA). During the seminars each student gives one oral presentation kick-starting a common discussion, either individually or as part of a group. In the seminar presentations, the students use free choice literature but will be provided a bibliography and other reference material for support. In a short essay to be written during the course the students compare their learning to respective information in the course reading book (TBA).
