This course is a core component of the Honours year in Indigenous Studies. It includes an intensive workshop on research design and methodology at the start of the academic year, and regular workshops through terms 1 and 2 which will develop skills in research, analytical and writing.The course as a whole is designed to prepare students for designing and carrying out an Honours thesis project in Indigenous Studies. Students will be exposed to research methods and practices in the field in the context of approaches in the social sciences and humanities. They will have the opportunity to discuss and explore some of the major contemporary approaches to Indigenous Studies and some of the key issues raised by academic research and writing in the field, including ethical implications of research. Students will be well prepared to complete an Honours thesis, and will have the necessary basis for further research.
Note: This is a 12 UOC course. You will enrol in 6 UOC in each of two successive terms with a result reported by a single grade at the end of the second 6 UOC course.
