OSK PhD seminar The Architecture of the PhD Thesis

 

The seminar explores different ways of structuring a PhD thesis in art history or history of architecture. Participants examine and discuss published examples and also present the (provisory) structure of their own thesis for further discussion. The course is useful for PhD candidates in their second or third year and for those working on the definitive structure of their thesis.

 

Teacher: Prof. dr. Thijs Weststeijn, Utrecht University.
