Seminarplan


Beschreibung

Ziel des Seminars ist es ausgewählte Phänomene und Probleme heutiger Gesellschaften von einer polit-ökonomischen Perspektive zu analysieren. Dabei soll besondere Bedeutung erfahren, welche Rolle die theoretische und methodische Ausgangsperspektive bei der Problemdiagnose spielt. Konkret geht es zunächst darum sich einige zentrale wissenschaftstheoretische Konzepte anzueignen, die es ermöglichen, die Genese unterschiedlicher Problemdiagnosen auf die von den Wissenschaftler:innen verwendeten Theorien, Methoden oder Daten bzw. deren normativen Grundhaltungen zurückzuführen. Anschließend werden anhand verschiedener Anwendungsbeispiele aus den Themenbereichen "Internationale Entwicklung und Ungleichheit" sowie "Ökologische Krisen und ökonomisches Wachstum" verschiedene polit-ökonomische Problemdiagnosen vergleichend diskutiert.

Theses

We are happy to supervise both Bachelor and Master theses on topics that align well with the research and teaching focus of our department. If you would like to write your thesis under our supervision, we kindly invite you to carefully read the following information first.

1) We expect that your thesis will have, as point of departure, an existing research paper (or book) from the relevant literature. The job of your thesis is to critically and independently evaluate, and extend, this paper, or its central thesis. The extension is given more weight in a Master thesis than in a Bachelor thesis. The selection of the underlying research paper or book is of crucial importance for the success of your thesis. In some cases your point of reference might also be something else, e.g. a policy document. Such choice should, however, be well justified.

2) To apply for a thesis, you have to contact us by March 1st for the spring semester or by September 1st for the fall semester. This is necessary for us to plan the supervision activities for the forthcoming semester and to assist you in an adequate way. Please write an email with your CV, your transcript of records, and your desired topic to the secretariat (Ms. Hübner). Please briefly justify the selection of the topic and your academic point of departure in the email and outline your work plan with the help of an exposé (between half a page and one page in length).

3) After the deadline has expired, you will receive an answer to your application within one week. We will make an appointment in which we will constructively discuss your exposé together and reach a mutual on the precise topic and problem statement of your thesis.

4) Writing your thesis under our supervision requires attending our Bachelor/Master Kolloquium. Registration runs separately via the examination office/Studiport. In the Kolloquium, you will receive fundamental input on how to write a thesis; we also use the Kolloquium for an academic exchange on the various theses projects currently supervised at our department.
