CIRHS conducts reading sessions with interested participants. These reading sessions are designed to do the following:
- Expose participants to new research taking place in the Social Sciences
- Introduce important texts which allow participants to raise and deal with new questions in the Social Sciences
- Train participants in reading a text in a way that allows them to identify and reconstruct central arguments and think about their implications
- We focus on ‘how to think’ rather than ‘what to think’, through cognitive exercises related to the texts under study
- Get student participants interested in research in such a way that it transforms their academic experience
Participants are also given tasks that they must complete between sessions. In that sense, these reading sessions are designed as an informal course in research training.
Venue and Time: The reading sessions take place twice a week at CIRHS premises. The sessions are held at 2pm on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
All those interested may register their names in the CIRHS office and collect the reading material.
NB: Reading session time and days can be altered if there is a demand from the participants.
