Inhalt The purpose of the workshop is to bring PhD students together to discuss the progress of their work. The workshop consists of three parts, (I) Thinking in Progress, (II) Researching in Progress and (III) Writing in Progress. Each participant has the opportunity to present 15-20 minutes, followed by 20 minutes of discussion in plenum. The presentation should not mainly be a presentation of the project but focus on what you are currently working on and what challenges you are facing and how you go about these challenges. Please respect the format suggested below. You are free to invite to the workshop colleagues that you think can make valuable contributions to your work.
(I) Thinking in Progress: in this part, PhD students who are beginning with their work are encouraged to discuss their “thesis”. This refers to the nature of the problem which their work addresses, the particular question which they ask and its significance to scholarship. It is important that in their presentation they discuss the specific literature or field of study which their work addresses and that they give us a sense of how they wish to make a contribution to it.
(II) Researching in Progress: in this part, PhD students who have already started collecting data are expected to give a detailed report on what they have been up to. This includes an account of the type of data, which they have been collecting, the kind of analysis which they intend to undertake and their expectations concerning how they think they will be able to address the problem that they set out to address at the beginning.
(III) Writing in Progress: in this part, PhD students who are writing up their findings should report on the structure of their thesis, the storyline which they are pursuing and the argument that connects individual chapters to form a whole. If they are working on a particular chapter they should discuss its place in the overall thesis, how it relates to the initial problem and its orientation (theoretical, methodological or conceptual).
