Teoretiska perspektiv inom litteraturen

The course will provide a structure for participants to critically study a selected topic in the literature, and develop a conceptual framework to support future research. The selected topics will relate to individual participant’s research interest, but will be an established topic in their respective field, where conceptual development can be identified and discussed. While readings will be highly individualized, course seminars will provide the opportunity to train competence in critical reflection of the literature and ability to formulate a well-grounded conceptual framework of a theoretical topic.
