Are you interested in doing independent research? Are you unsure about how to take a broad topic of interest and turn it into a research question? This workshop, led by Dr. K. Frances Lieder, UCIS Visiting Professor of Contemporary Global Issues, will help you to begin thinking through potential research topics in a generative and generous low-stakes environment. Any student with an interest in developing an independent academic research project in the social sciences and humanities is welcome. Bring your questions and a general sense of the topics that interest you! We will focus on how to develop clear research questions, but any and all questions, concerns, and interest in independent research are welcome. We especially encourage students pursuing or considering a BPHIL/IAS to attend.
