  1. Students obtain knowledge and understanding of hermeneutics as an important research method in the humanities.
  2. Students obtain insights in the social and historical relevance of meaning attribution.
  3. Students are able to apply different research strategies and interpretation methods.
  4. Students learn to deal with current affairs, political and cultural phenomena, which are studied from a cultural studies perspective.
In the research module we work with academic texts that shed light on hermeneutics as an important research method in the humanities. During the classes we connect the texts with artistic objects and societal phenomena. Every week one or two research methods are taken as a departure point, that are consequentially used to study a cultural product (film, game, visual arts, literature, etc.).
