Dr. Bonnie Talbert

This workshop will provide a brief overview of the methodological issues involved in a theory-based thesis, that is, a project which mainly deals with a philosophical and/or theoretical problem, or primarily interrogates ideas, concepts, and arguments by a specific author or more. Topics include 1) important questions a theory thesis should address, 2) some common pitfalls to avoid, and 3) research tips that maximize efficiency and save time.
