About the course:

The purpose of this course is to give an advanced introduction to current theoretical and methodological approaches within the field of cultural heritage and sustainability, and to train you to apply some of the norms and conventions guiding academic writing.

The first part of the course focuses on theoretical and methodological traditions through lectures. Seminars on key texts/issues within these traditions will train you in critical thinking.

The second part of the course introduces different forms of academic texts and conventions. The focus will be on creating academic papers and the student will as part of the examination produce a paper and also give a review of another student's paper.
The course is compulsory for the Master's Programme in the Humanities Focusing on Cultural Heritage and Sustainability but it is also given as a freestanding course.
