Proposals to undertake a special reading unit should be prepared before the start of the semester, in order for the student to arrange a supervisor and finalise a viable study program (with a written contract detailing performance requirements and assessment methods).
Students who successfully complete this subject will be able to:
- Formulate and complete a substantial research project.
- Demonstrate independent research skills.
- Place relevant literature in its cultural, ideological and epistemological contexts by showing where it fits into the current state of knowledge.
- Display their acquaintance with some of the ongoing debates in the relevant discipline (archaeology, history, Jewish civilisation, theology).
