On Wednesday 23 March 2016 Shilin will host the Shilin Research Symposium. For many students, incorporating research that goes beyond literature found in the library can seem daunting. The symposium invites BA and MA students to share their experiences of doing fieldwork abroad, conducting interviews, working with primary sources, etc. The presentations will not only give students an idea of the possible research methods they can use to write their thesis, but also give an insight in the practical issues that are involved. If you are interested in presenting at the symposium, please send us an e-mail, including a short description of your research methods. Visit our website regularly for the latest updates.

The Shilin team hopes to see you at the symposium!

Date: Wednesday 23 March 2016, 15:00-17:00

Location: Eyckhof 3/ 005, Faculty of Humanities – Leiden University
