AbstractIn working collectively toward a publication, the seminar deals with a significant topic in the history of science: Science and the New Right. Students will learn to integrate skills in research, writing and science communication. A continuation of FS 2019, the block course will give students the opportunity to finalize their contributions to the publication.
ObjectiveStudents will learn to integrate skills in research, writing and science communication.
ContentThe New Right is inescapable – both, politically and as a media phenomenon. It also tends to come across as broadly antiscientific (climate denial, “fake news”, conspiracy theories, etc). And yet, as we’ll explore in this seminar, historically speaking ‘real’ science did play a significant role in the rise of New Right.
The seminar “Science And The New Right (Completion) will function as a workshop for research and writing. This block course continues the group work begun in FS 2019 (Enrolment in the precursor seminar (FS 2019) is mandatory!). Besides regular group-meetings and feedback-sessions, the block course focuses on the final editorial steps and completion of the publication. As before, participants will be expected to work independently, engage with the topic, and bring with them an interest in writing and the design of scientific publications.
