Description: This tutorial is designed to introduce first semester students to critical reading, research and analysis at Hampshire College. Some of the questions we will explore are: How do scholars from different fields and disciplines choose their topic of inquiry and how do they go about answering those questions? What does it mean to conduct interdisciplinary research? How does choice of methodology impact the kind of knowledge created? We will be answering these questions and others as well as exploring some of the diverse research methodologies and themes of Hampshire faculty by inviting different faculty guest speakers to discuss their research or teaching interests. Students will be expected to design and undertake a research project and present their findings to the class at the end of the semester.
