HTDTWT: MA trajectory 2020-2021

HOW TO DO THINGS WITH THEORY includes a two year trajectory oriented towards the writing of a master thesis. This path is designed to help students to develop skills to formulate relevant questions which strengthen their praxes and allow them to position themselves and their work in broader contexts. Students receive prolonged personal guidance from one theory tutor assigned to them at the end of the first year of study - after they have presented a thesis proposal.  

The HTDTWT thesis advisors also thematically steer and lead monthly plenary seminar sessions for students both in their first as well as their second year of study. In preparation for these gatherings the students read and discuss a variety of carefully selected theoretical texts. Cinematic and aural works can be presented for collective analysis as well.
