Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast

This unit has been discontinued.


This unit provides Honours students with ideas, knowledge, and skills for “doing” research, at both the broad level of Humanities research in general and the specific level of their individual Humanities discipline and Honours thesis research areas. There is an emphasis on Humanities research as an open-ended pursuit, one which is most exciting when it is focused on the posing of questions and is open to multiple approaches. Through coming together in an inter-disciplinary format, students will be exposed to many theories, methodologies, points of view and academic strategies which will enhance both their growth as Humanities scholars and their individual Honours thesis research. The unit will include specific attention to the thesis-planning and thesiswriting process and the academic conventions of being a Humanities researcher.
