About this Unit
This unit introduces students to the principles of research design and examines the process of academic knowledge production. Using theories from the philosophy of science and the sociology of knowledge, combined with regular reflective writing exercises, students will be guided through various aspects of project design, including the development of a research question, the selection of appropriate methodologies, and the preparation of a draft MRes thesis proposal. Upon completion of the unit students will have a firm understanding of the context of academic knowledge production, and will be able to demonstrate competence in designing a research proposal.
