Description du contenu de l'enseignement

Reading Skills, S1, UE1

The main focus of this course lies in the study of point of view and argumentation in academic texts. We will explore the various ways in which authors use logic, structure and rhetoric to persuade readers and build a line of argument. This course helps students strengthen their skills of close critical analysis and encourages them to become active, engaged readers. Each student is asked to do an oral presentation of an academic article or book chapter that is central to his or her research for the Master’s thesis. All students are invited to formulate questions based on their colleagues’ presentations and to participate in an intellectual discussion about the premises, goals and methodology of their research in relation to the articles discussed.

Writing Skills, S1, UE1

How we write is almost as important as what we write. But how does one write in a critical fashion? What is critical writing? In this practice-led course comprising obligatory writing assignments (in class and at home), students will be incited to develop an objective writing style by working on short critical reviews of articles and texts. They will also be expected to write a preliminary critical statement that could provide the basis for their future M1 research project. This class is run along the lines of a workshop where participation is obligatory.
