For the structure of reading group meetings (2015), see the list below:

We will start the reading group by summarising the articles, followed by an in-depth discussion of them.

Additionally, you may want to do some of the following in order to prepare for the discussion:

  • Write down any questions you may have about the articles

  • Find one or more passages that you find interesting

  • Think about how the points presented in the articles relate to other theories or to your own research

  • Choose the paper you agree with the most, then pretend to be the devil’s advocate and criticize the authors’ viewpoints
