Accademia Fiesolana is the SPS Department’s introductory department seminar. Its objectives are to lay the groundwork for thinking about your own (and others’) research as well as to become familiar with the research done in the SPS department. The seminar is compulsory for first year researchers. The first part consists of three seminar meetings. We start with discussing how to identify and ask a research question that can contribute to a broader body of literature, is clearly defined, is answerable, and is something you want to spend four years working on. Then we move on to thinking about how to select an appropriate method for the research questions being asked and some philosophical foundations of political and social scientific analysis. We will also discuss ethical issues in political and social scientific research. The second part consists of five seminar meetings, in which the faculty members of the department introduce their research by focusing on how their work relates to a broader problem in the political and social sciences.
