It is essentially like a mini dissertation.
– It consists of a 700 word Research proposal (very Important towards the final mark, it counts for a high % of the grade), which I am ordering with you now.
– A conference presentation where I will present my findings etc.
– A 2500 word research paper
The thing to remember is the final Research Paper is only 2500 words. So I can’t write this towards a typical research question because I simply will not have the words to complete it. However it still needs to be something as interesting (as the guidelines state). Once we have come up with an approach / title or hypothesis I will send it to my advisor straight away and then get it confirmed ASAP before you start writing.
My topic is Racism in football. I have a lot of potential ideas but we need to narrow it down and decide on a title before you start writing.
My ideas are as follows: PLEASE VISIT THE ‘MY IDEAS AND INSTRUCTIONS FILE’ ATTACHED FOR ALL THE INFO
(Ps. Where I mention comparisons to Spain, this is because the main language I am studying at university is Spanish. SO it makes sense to use Spain if I decide to do a comparative study. I could use more countries but it depends on the title we choose because my advisor informed me that I won’t be able to fit it all in if I chose 5 countries for example.)
I selected ‘SOCIOLOGY’ because I’m not sure which Subject Area is most accurate for this.
I selected 12 sources. However there is no right number. The More the Better. But I would say 10 as a minimum.
