Doing philosophy: Methods in Philosophical Inquiry
This course aims at providing doctoral students in philosophy with tools for distinguishing and practicing different ways of doing philosophy. Philosophical methodology as an independent topic of discussion has recently become a hot topic. But what do we actually talk about when we talk about philosophical methodology? Is it possible to determine what it means to do philosophy well?

Crafting Ethnography: Analysis, argument and writing
This course approaches ethnographic analysis, argument and writing as a craft to be learned. Good ethnographic craftsmanship entails giving primacy to empirical material and bringing it into dialogue with theoretical positions to nuance, refine, question and contradict these positions. Working with ethnographic material thus entails a particular kind of composition, the concrete arrangement and juxtaposition of ethnographic fragments and analytical reflections (Nielsen & Rapport 2018).
