Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the workshop the student will have acquired the basic tools to conduct a research project on history. They will have acquired the primary elements necessary to retrieve the bibliography, using the research tools available (online catalogues and repositories, dictionaries, databases), and the knowledge of the main types of sources. They will be able to orient themselves within the documentary landscape and consult the published sources, in addition understanding the primary essentials concerning the unpublished documents. Finally, they will be able to write on the results of the research, adopting appropriate language tools and applying the proper editorial configurations for an essay. These skills will be acquired first through the discussion with the instructor and the completion of activities in the classroom, with practical exercises on research tools and sources, and later through the individual construction of a short essay from the reading and inter-student discussion of essays and published sources. Students unable to attend will be able to make use of the educational tools provided by the instructor on Ariel, investigate special readings proposed by the instructor, and contact the instructor by email.
