The main goals of the course are: 1) to cultivate practical skills of sociological reporting and writing; 2) to discuss and master formatting and finalizing of scholarly paper before submitting it to publication; 3) to mediate a mutual critical feedback on actual finished or almost-finished scholarly texts authored by the participants.
