Between the 17th and 19th centuries, new political conceptions of Human Rights developed. In a context of effervescence of political and philosophical conceptions and conflicts, through the contributions of recognised experts in the field from different countries, we will come to know how they affected those who were also almost anonymous protagonists in armed conflicts: the prisoners of war.

Simon Robinson's picture

 

 

Aim: This short, six-session course for scientists intends to visit the research article, considering issues before writing, and how these elements are then reflected in actual published research articles in your disciplines. You will be asked to apply these considerations to your own proposed writing and research articles.

Preparation/Materials: You need to select two journal article/s of your choice, which you consider as being well written, and which are relevant to your research. You will also need to bring any writing related to the research you are doing currently, or maybe a recently finished paper. Essentially, something you can reflect on after discussions in class on the themes below.

Outcome: You will be more aware of the expectations that research publication demands, and will be able to identify more precisely how writers approach and deal with these expectations.

Dates: 25th and 26th January 2018

Venue: Central European University, 9 Nádor utca, 1051 Budapest, Hungary

Web-site: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/writing-for-publication-training-tickets-35476595452
