The seminar focuses on ways to structure your art- or architectural historical PhD thesis. The participant will examine and discuss published examples and will also present the (provisory) structure of his/her own thesis to each other for further discussion. As such this course is especially useful to PhD candidates who are in their second or third year and/or are looking or working on the final structure for their thesis.
Teacher: Konrad Ottenheym, professor for architectural history, Utrecht University.
