This seminar course is designed to spur PhD students toward effective work on their dissertation and completion of an approved prospectus by the end of the academic year. There will be written assignments defining their problem area, a literature review, analytic frameworks, and data sources. It is hoped that students will complete a preliminary draft of at least one chapter of their dissertation by the end of the semester.
