Inhalt: In this colloquium, we focus on forming an exciting and answerable research question for a BA thesis. We look at the relationship between coming up with a hypothesis and subsequently identifying methods to guide the inquiry. The colloquium is a process of discovery best conducted with peers. Increasingly the study of Digital Culture calls for interdisciplinary methods--you have a considerable amount of latitude in terms of your topic and methods. This disciplinary latitude means that it is critical is to choose a topic narrow enough to answer in a BA thesis. For this reason, much of the feedback given in the initial stages amounts to “be more specific.” Accordingly, you will get the most out of this colloquium if you arrive with a clearly defined topic. You have to know the boundaries (e.g., a time frame, a geographic area, a demographic).
