The purpose of this course is to enable you to write a research paper on a topic of your choice. Accordingly the focus is not on a particular thematic or problem but on the process of research and writing itself. We will also use the class to discuss more general matters of professional development - looking forward to your doctoral work, publishing and getting a job - in dialogue with the discussions on <a href=";http://www.nacbs.org/NACBS/forum/index.html";>The Making of the Working British Historian</a> website.

The common readings have been selected around your own diverse interests and will be used to discuss the questions that animate you as well as models of good (or bad) practice. We will start by reading my recently finished book so I can share with you some of my interests, why I arrived at them, and how they eventually became a book.
