Description:
Zu den zentralen sprachlichen Alltagserfahrungen der Sprecherinnen und Sprecher des Deutschen gehört die Wahrnehmung der Tatsache, dass sich der Sprachgebrauch innerhalb des deutschen Sprachgebiets im Raum unterscheidet. Lange Zeit waren die Dialekte überall die Sprachformen der primären sprachlichen Sozialisation, inzwischen sind auch großregio-nalere Formen und standardnahe Sprechlagen weit verbreitet. Gegenstand des Seminars sind zunächst die verschiedenen regionalen Sprachformen des Deutschen und ihre jeweili-gen Merkmale; dabei geht es auch um die Methoden ihrer Erforschung und Dokumentation. Thema ist ferner die Verbreitung der Dialekte sowie die (im deutschen Sprachgebiet regio-nal unterschiedliche) Kompetenz der Sprecherinnen und Sprecher und der tatsächliche Ge-brauch. Besprochen wird außerdem der soziolinguistische Status der Dialekte, das heißt ei-nerseits ihr funktionaler Wert im (individuellen wie gesellschaftlichen) Varietätengefüge und ihre Bedeutung im sprachlichen Alltag und andererseits die verschiedenen Zuschreibungen und Bewertungen, die die Sprecherinnen und Sprecher gegenüber dem eigenen und gegen-über fremden Dialekten vornehmen.

Description:
Gespräche werden durch komplexe sprachliche und nichtsprachliche Aktivitäten aller Beteiligten hergestellt. Die Gesprächsanalyse erforscht die Bedingungen, Muster und Regularitäten, die die gemeinsame Herstellung, Aufrechterhaltung und Ausgestaltung von Gesprächen bestimmen. Dies umfasst z. B. die Frage nach konstitutiven Einheiten von Gesprächen, nach der Organisation des Sprecherwechsels und der Sequenzstrukturen bis hin zur Handlungsorganisation ganzer Gesprä-che.
Das Seminar behandelt zentrale Konzepte und Methoden der Gesprächsanalyse unter Bezug auf empirische Daten aus natürlichen Kommunikationssituationen.

Description:
Dieses Proseminar widmet sich der Konversationsanalyse, einer Methode der interpretativen bzw. qualitativen Sozialforschung. Kern der Methode sind detaillierte Beobachtungen einzelner sprachlicher Phänomene auf strikt empirischer Grundlage. Zu Beginn des Seminars werden wir die Hintergründe, Grundannahmen und methodischen Herangehensweisen der Konversationsanalyse kennenlernen. Anschließend werden wir uns mit verschiedenen Transkriptionssystemen vertraut machen und uns mit aktuellen konversationsanalytischen Arbeiten beschäftigen. Auf Grundlage von bereits vorhandenen Gesprächsdaten werden wir Forschungsfragen entwickeln und Daten daraufhin analysieren. Dabei können die Seminarteilnehmer*innen ihre eigenen Interessen und Ideen einbringen. Zum Abschluss des Seminars führt jede*r eine eigene kleine Untersuchung mit selbst gewählter Fragestellung durch. Als zu erbringende Prüfungsleistung wird diese Untersuchung zu einer Hausarbeit verschriftlicht.  
In der ersten Sitzung werden allgemeine Seminarinhalte, Lehr- und Lernziele, Arbeitsformen und die Voraussetzungen für die Kreditierung erläutert.

Description:
Als Satzgefüge bezeichnet man Sätze, in denen Nebensätze enthalten sind. Die Vorlesung gibt einen Überblick über den Aufbau von Satz¬ge-fü¬gen im Deutschen sowie über Formen und Funktionen der Nebensätze. Hinsichtlich der grammatischen Form werden unter anderem Ausdrücke behandelt, mit denen Nebensätze eingeleitet werden können (Konjunk¬tio¬nen, Pronomina und andere). Bei den Funktionen sind syntaktische und semantische zu unterscheiden. In syntaktischer Hinsicht können Neben¬sätze unter anderem die Rolle von Subjekt, Objekten oder freien Angaben übernehmen. In semantischer Hinsicht werden vor allem Angabesätze weiter untergliedert (Temporalsätze, Kausalsätze usw.).

Description:
Die Analyse der Syntax lyrischer Texte ist in zumindest zweierlei Hinsicht interessant. Zum einen ermöglicht sie über eine genaue Erfassung der Satzstrukturen Einblicke in funktionale Aspekte der lyrischen Form. Zum anderen stellen Gedichte eine besondere empirische Quelle für die Linguistik dar, verbunden mit der Frage, ob lyrische Texte Abweichungen von der „normalen“ Sprache darstellen und inwieweit  linguistische Theorien und Beschreibungsverfahren lyrische Texte erfassen müssen. Im Mittelpunkt des Seminars werden Satzgliedstrukturen, Valenzeigenschaften von Verben und topologische Strukturen stehen. Wir werden in dem Zusammenhang Gedichte vom Barock bis zur Gegenwart analysieren.

Description:
Das HS soll den Master-Studierenden in der Auseinandersetzung mit Quellenmaterial und Literatur einen Überblick über die wechselvollen Beziehungen zwischen den USA und Russland ermöglichen. Der Zeitraum beginnt in den frühen 1800er Jahren mit der Aufnahme diplomatischer Beziehungen zwischen dem neuen, unabhängigen Staat USA und dem russischen Zarenreich und reicht zum heutigen indirekten Krieg zwischen dem „failed state“ Russland und der „Mono-Supermacht“ USA.
An Schlaglichtern und wichtigen Zäsuren soll der Versuch unternommen werden, eine Bilanz dieses Verhältnisses vor allem mit Blick auf die internationale Weltordnung zu ziehen, und dabei auch die jeweiligen Veränderungen in der Wahrnehmung der anderen Macht nachzuzeichnen.

Kurzbeschreibung und Lernziele:

Im Jahr 2010 präsentierte der britische Radiosender BBC 4 zusammen mit dem British Museum eine Reihe von Sendungen, die die Weltgeschichte in 100 Objekten erzählten. Inspiriert von diesem Projekt zwischen Museum und Medien, erschließt das Seminar wichtige Themen der mittelalterlichen Geschichte, wie Landwirtschaft, Reichtum, Armut, adliges Leben, Herrschaft und Stadtgeschichte auf eine etwas andere Art, nämlich durch Objekte aus jener Zeit. Wir werden uns also anhand bestimmter ausgewählter Gegenstände der materiellen Kultur des Mittelalters zuwenden. Praktisches Ziel ist es zunächst einen Podcast zu erarbeiten und dann eine Objektbiografie zu schreiben, die den Entstehungskontext, die Herstellung der Objekte, ihren Gebrauch und auch ihre ggf. Musealisierung wissenschaftlich analysieren. Interesse an Archäologie und Kunstgeschichte sind erwünscht.

Der Besuch des begleitenden Tutoriums ist Pflicht.

Description:
Der Osten des römischen Reiches erlebte im 3. Jhd. n. Chr. eine Reihe von dramatischen Umbrüchen, die nicht nur Teil der berüchtigten „Krise des 3. Jhd.“ im Römischen Reich waren, sondern auch aufgrund äußerer Faktoren geschahen. Die Vorlesung wird dabei beleuchten, welche strukturellen Herausforderungen sich für den Osten des Römischen Reiches seit severischer Zeit stellten und wie diesen begegnet wurde. Kern des Betrachtungsgebietes wird der Großraum des antiken Syrien bilden, der Blick muss aber auch in die römischen Nachbarregionen sowie auf die Gemeinschaften jenseits der Grenze gerichtet werden. Denn das 3. Jhd. n. Chr. sah mit dem Ende des Parther-Reiches und der Etablierung der Sassaniden deutliche Veränderungen für die Grenze des Römischen Reiches, auf die nicht zuletzt auch die berühmte Etablierung des sog. Palmyrenischen Teilreiches unter Zenobia antwortete.

Description:
Das Hauptseminar wird sich mit einer der schillerndsten Gestalten der Antike beschäftigen, dessen Leben eines Hollywood-Streifens würdig wäre. Unser Seminar wird fragen, wie Herodes es auf den Thron Judäas schaffte und welche besonderen Herausforderungen sich ihm als Herrscher über diese Region stellten. Wir werden dabei sowohl auf die politischen als auch religiösen, sozialen, kulturellen und ökonomischen Bedingungen seiner Herrschaftszeit eingehen und insbesondere auch seine schwierige Familiensituation und die angeblich so große Freundschaft mit Augustus beleuchten. Dabei werden wir uns auch mit der komplexen Quellensituation zu Herodes auseinandersetzen müssen und dabei insbesondere die beiden Autoren Nikolaos von Damaskus, der positiv über Herodes schrieb, und Flavius Josephus, der ein eher ambivalentes Bild des Herodes zeichnet, untersuchen.

Description:
Unter den während der NS-Diktatur aus politischen oder rassenideologischen Gründen verdrängten Wissenschaftlern und Wissenschaftlerinnen befanden sich auch einige aus den geistes- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Disziplinen. Viele bemühten sich um einen beruflichen Neuanfang im Exil. Die wenigsten Überlebenden kehrten in die Bundesrepublik oder DDR zurück. Welche wissenschaftlichen und methodischen Ansätze brachen mit ihrem Weggang ab? Inwiefern trugen sie in ihrem Exilland zur Entwicklung ihres Fachs bei? Was lernten sie in der ihnen neuen Wissenschaftskultur dieses Landes hinzu? Und welche Bedeutung hatten die wenigen Remigranten für die deutsche Geschichts-, Politik- und Sozialwissenschaft nach 1945. Das Seminar wird diesen Fragen nachgehen, sich aber insbesondere mit dem Werk die jeweiligen Wissenschaftler und Wissenschaftlerinnen befassen.

Kurzbeschreibung und Lernziele:

Stadtbücher sind eine der vielfältigsten und spannendsten Quellengattungen des Spätmittelalters. Sie enthalten Informationen zu fast allen Aspekten städtischen Lebens: Wirtschaft, Politik, soziale und Rechtsfragen. Im heutigen Deutschland dokumentierten Stadtschreiber ab dem 13. Jahrhundert teils auf Latein, teils in der Volkssprache städtische Ämter und Amtseide, Kreditbeziehungen, Inventare, Rechtsgeschäfte, Verträge, Statuten, Steuern und Zölle und neue Bürger. Stadtbücher sind somit ein “zentrales Medium, das soziale Beziehungen herstellte und bewahrte, Verfahren sicherten, Glaubwürdigkeit herstellte, Wissen ordnete, Verwaltung und Herrschaft organisierte und zur (Re-) Konstruktion von Traditionen beitrug.” (C. Speer)
Auf der Basis des digitalen Katalogs „stadtbücher.de“ und edierter Texte werden wir workshopartig an verschiedenen Quellenbeispielen arbeiten und verschiedene Themen erforschen, z.B. wie die soziale Topografie einer Stadt aussah, wie sich die Beziehungen zwischen der Stadt und den Bürgern gestalteten, woran sich Konflikte entzündeten und wie sie geschlichtet wurden, wie Städte ihre Verwaltung und Finanzen organisierten und vieles mehr. Das Seminar wird zusammen mit der Universität Innsbruck (co-Lehrender: Stephan Nicolussi-Köhler) veranstaltet und schließt mit einer viertätigen Exkursion nach Innsbruck/Studierendenkonferenz ab, bei der die Studierenden ihre Forschungsergebnisse einander präsentieren.

Description:

Kurzbeschreibung und Lernziele:

Gender equality in employment is a vital issue today. Despite advances made in recent decades, 2.4 billion women globally of working age are not afforded the same economic rights as men, and in Germany, women on average earn 18% less than men do. This course seeks to understand the factors that both promote and inhibit female economic activity, by examining historical societies throughout Europe and North America. In what spheres were women able to operate? What impact did patriarchal legal, cultural and political structures have on female activity? How far did industrialisation and new technologies change women’s work? And how can we observe and quantify women’s economic contributions with the fragmentary and biased historical sources available?

In this course, we will attempt to answer these questions using a wide range of historical case studies including early agricultural societies, the late medieval Mediterranean, early modern Germany, Britain during the Industrial Revolution and the twentieth-century United States. We will discuss a broad array of topics including the household division of labour and male-breadwinner economies, the nature of market and domestic work, credit and trade networks, social capital, access to education, industrialisation and the impacts of contraception. By the end of the course, you will have reflected deeply on the role of women in economies past and present, and perhaps even thought about how we can improve gender equality today.

Description:

Wie wird Gender im Film konzipiert? Auf welche Weise können etablierte Geschlechterrollen durch filmische Inszenierung bestärkt oder unterlaufen werden? Solchen und ähnlichen Fragen widmet sich dieses Seminar, in dem die Filme der französischen Regisseurin Céline Sciamma im Mittelpunkt stehen.
Auf Basis einer methodischen Einführung in die Filmanalyse werden wir die Filme Naissance des pieuvres (2007), Tomboy (2011), Bande de filles (2014) und Portrait de la jeune fille en feu (2019) hinsichtlich ihrer narrativen und filmästhetischen Herangehensweise an die gesellschaftliche Konstruktion von Weiblichkeit und Männlichkeit analysieren. Die Filme werfen bezüglich dieser Thematik verschiedene Perspektiven auf, indem sie Konstruktionen von Geschlechterrollen unter anderem im historischen Kontext, im prekären Milieu der Banlieue, aber auch im Rahmen von Transsexualität behandeln. Unter Rückgriff auf zentrale theoretische Konzepte der Gender Studies (u.a. von Judith Butler) sollen die Filme im Hinblick auf die jeweiligen Genderkonstruktionen abschließend vergleichend betrachtet werden.

Description:
Zentrales Thema des Seminars ist die italienische Literatur der Shoah. Nach einem Überblick über den historischen Kontext, u.a. die faschistischen „leggi razziali“ zur Verfolgung der Juden, soll im Seminar untersucht werden, wie die Shoah literarisch dargestellt und verarbeitet wird.
Primo Levi berichtet in Se questo è un uomo (1947), einem der bedeutendsten Zeugnisse der Shoah, als einer der wenigen Überlebenden von seiner Zeit im Konzentrationslager. Neben diesem zentralen Text werden wir Ausschnitte aus Werken wie Liliana Millus Il fumo di Birkenau (1947), Natalia Ginzburgs Lessico famigliare (1963), Lidia Beccarla Rolfis Le donne di Ravensbrück (1978), Helena Janeczeks Lezioni di tenebra (1997) und Edith Brucks Il pane perduto (2021) behandeln. Ausgehend vom Konzept der Zeugenschaft widmen wir uns der ethisch-ästhetischen Dimension der Texte, differenzieren zwischen Berichten von Zeitzeug:innen und solchen der „Generation of Postmemory“ (Hirsch, 2012) und gehen so der Darstellung aus verschiedenen (Gender-)Perspektiven nach.
Anhand von Roberto Benignis Tragikomödie La vita è bella (1997) analysieren wir darüber hinaus, welche Rolle Humor bei der Darstellung der Shoah spielen kann. Nicht zuletzt soll im Seminar die Funktion von Literatur und Film für das kollektive Gedächtnis erörtert werden.

Bitte beschaffen Sie sich Se questo è un uomo, sobald Sie zum Seminar zugelassen sind, und beginnen Sie gern auch schon mit der Lektüre.

Ziel des Proseminars ist es, anhand der Analyse ausgewählter Texte aus den Novelas ejemplares (1613) in verschiedene narrative Techniken und Kompositionsstrukturen und die damit verbundenen Themenschwerpunkte der Novellen von Miguel de Cervantes einzuführen. Den konkreten Textanalysen wird eine Einführung in den sozio-historischen und literaturhistorischen Kontext des Autors, sowie eine Beschäftigung mit der Gattung vorangestellt. Die Erarbeitung wichtiger gesellschafts- und kulturpolitischer Aspekte des Siglo de Oro, die Frage nach dem Stellenwert der Novelas ejemplares im Kontext anderer Gattungen der Zeit, sowie die Herausarbeitung relevanter Gattungsmerkmale, die es uns erlauben, das Genre „Novelle“ in Abgrenzung zu anderen literarischen Gattungen zu definieren, ohne die historische Entwicklung und Wandelbarkeit auch dieser Gattung zu vernachlässigen, werden somit Gegenstand der ersten Sitzungen sein. Im Rahmen der Analyse ausgewählter Novellen, die den Schwerpunkt des Proseminars bildet, sollen u.a. das kreative Spiel mit zeitgenössischen literarischen Erwartungsmustern, der innovative Umgang mit bekannten Vorbildern der Gattung (wie z.B. dem italienischen Vorbild des Decamerone) und die jeweils entfalteten thematische Schwerpunkte untersucht werden.

Description:
Im Zentrum des Seminars steht die Trilogie des jumeaux, bestehend aus Le Grand Cahier, La Preuve und Le Troisième Mensonge, der ungarisch-schweizerischen Autorin Ágota Kristóf. Darin verhandelt sie Themen wie Identität und Identitätssuche sowie Krieg, Flucht und Exil und wirft Fragen nach der Funktion und Macht von Sprache und Literatur auf. Während im ersten Roman die Kindheit der Zwillingsbrüder Lucas und Claus während des Krieges dargestellt wird, geht es im zweiten Teil um das (Über-)Leben eines Bruders in der besetzten Heimat nach der Trennung vom anderen. Im dritten Roman treffen die Zwillinge nach fünfzig Jahren wieder aufeinander.
Wir werden uns im Seminar zunächst mit dem historischen Kontext und Kristófs Migration und Sprachwechsel beschäftigen und die gewonnenen Erkenntnisse anschließend für die Romananalyse nutzen. Um der Identität der Zwillinge, an der uns Kristóf immer wieder zweifeln lässt, auf die Spur zu gehen, untersuchen wir die Romane einzeln, bevor wir sie als zusammenhängendes Werk betrachten. Dabei gehen wir bspw. dem Motiv des Doppelgängers, der Glaubwürdigkeit der Erzählerfiguren und den sprachlichen Besonderheiten der Texte nach.
Zum Abschluss werden wir auch János Szász‘ Verfilmung von Le Grand Cahier (Originaltitel: A nagy füzet), die 2013 Ungarns Beitrag für die Oscar-Kategorie „Bester internationaler Film“ war, in unsere Überlegungen einbeziehen.

Bitte beschaffen Sie sich die Romane – egal, ob separat oder in einer gemeinsamen Ausgabe –, sobald Sie zum Seminar zugelassen sind, und beginnen Sie gern auch schon mit der Lektüre.

Description:

Ziel des Proseminars ist es, anhand der Analyse ausgewählter Erzählungen von Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986) einen ersten Einblick in das literarische Schaffen eines der bekanntesten argentinischen Schriftsteller des 20. Jahrhunderts zu gewinnen. Die narrativen Werke dieses Autors sind in mehrfacher Hinsicht Genuss und Herausforderung für den Leser. Weit davon entfernt, traditionelle Erwartungshaltungen zu erfüllen, führen sie uns eher in ein desorientierendes Spiel im Umgang mit Wissen ein, lassen uns teilhaben an jenen Formen des Schwindels und der Verunsicherung, welche gängige Grenzziehungen, wie z.B. diejenigen zwischen Fiktionalität und Historizität, oder zwischen „realen“ und phantastischen Welten verwischen lassen. Sie regen uns u.a. dazu an, über den Tellerrand unseres eigenen Wirklichkeitsverständnisses hinauszuschauen, die Relativität gängiger Bewertungsmuster in den Blick zu rücken und die Vielfalt möglicher Sichtweisen und Konstruktionen von Wirklichkeit zu erproben.

Description:
Ziel dieses Seminars ist die Untersuchung von Sprachwandel- und Sprachaufgabeprozessen am Beispiel des Anglonormannischen. Dieser mittelalterliche französische Dialekt wurde im Zuge der Eroberung Englands durch den normannischen Herzog Wilhelm („der Eroberer“) im Jahre 1066 nach England gebracht und trat dort in eine komplexe Sprachkontaktsituation mit dem Englischen (im nähesprachlichen Bereich) und dem Lateinischen (im distanzsprachlichen Bereich). Nach dem „Golden Age of the King’s French“ im 14. Jahrhundert wurde das Anglonormannische ab dem Beginn des 15. Jh. – maßgeblich bedingt durch die Thronbesteigung von William V., dem ersten König mit Englisch als Muttersprache – sukzessiv vom Englischen verdrängt und schließlich komplett aufgegeben. Im Seminar sollen auf soziolinguistischer Ebene die gesellschaftlichen Dynamiken und die jeweiligen Push- und Pull-Faktoren herausgearbeitet werden, die zur Verdrängung und Aufgabe des Anglonormannischen führten. Darüber hinaus sollen die sprachlichen Besonderheiten dieses „français insulaire“ analysiert werden, die in der Forschungsliteratur kontrovers diskutiert werden. Während es von manchen lediglich als sekundärer Dialekt des Normannischen und somit als ein „normand exporté“ betrachtet wird, sind andere der Meinung, dass es sich vielmehr um eine eigenständige Varietät handle, bei deren Rekonstruierung auch die wesentlichen Einflüsse des Alt- und Mittelenglischen, die als jeweilige Kontaktsprachen fungierten, nicht außer Acht gelassen werden dürften. Zur Beantwortung dieser Frage sollen zeitgenössische Quellen analysiert werden, wie die Parliament Rolls of Medieval England, die die offiziellen Aufzeichnungen der Versammlungen des englischen Parlaments von der Regierungszeit Eduard I. (1272–1307) bis Heinrich VII. (1485–1509) beinhalten.

Description:
Der Stand des Katalanischen stellt seit Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts ein nicht unwesentliches Thema der Romanistik dar. Die Sprache wird oft als „Brückensprache“ eingestuft, die eine Zwischenrolle zwischen der iberoromanischen und der galloromanischen Gruppe einnimmt.
Was hat es aber mit diesem „Brückenkonzept“ auf sich? Wie gliedert sich der Erbwortschatz des Katalanischen? Wie steht es um die Syntax im Verhältnis zu den Nachbarsprachen? Und um
die Phonologie? Es wird, teils diachron teils synchron, auf Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede in der Lexik (insbesondere dem Erbwortschatz), Morphosyntax und Phonologie eingegangen, um das Verhältnis des Katalanischen zur
iberoromanischen und zur galloromanischen Gruppe aufzuzeigen. Dabei liegt der Schwerpunkt bei der didaktisch allzu oft unberücksichtigten Gegenverständlichkeit innerhalb von der Romania (insbesondere von der Zentralromania), deren Möglichkeiten für die Lernenden fast unerschöpflich sind. Durch eine sprachvergleichende Übung der Zentralromania/Westromania mit dem Katalanischen als roten Faden können die Studierenden Grundlagen mehrerer Sprachen erwerben. Eine tolle Chance, nicht nur die
sprachwissenschaftlichen Kenntnisse über die romanische Welt zu erweitern, sondern auch Basics mehrerer romanischer Sprachen gleichzeitig zu lernen!

Description:
Spanisch wird weltweit in mehr als 20 Ländern gesprochen und es bestehen viele Handelsbeziehungen zwischen deutschen und spanischsprachigen Unternehmen.
Doch wie genau wird miteinander kommuniziert? Welche Rolle spielen sprachliche Besonderheiten?
Das Seminar stellt eine Einführung in die deutsch-spanische (Wirtschafts-) Kommunikation dar. Wir lernen linguistische Methoden zur Untersuchung von sprachlichem Handeln im Alltag und in Unternehmen kennen. Neben Textsorten und Interaktionsarten aus Spanien werden auch Beispiele aus hispanoamerikanischen Ländern betrachtet.

Description:
Das Werk der Literaturnobelpreisträgerin Annie Ernaux widmet sich dem Selbst aus einer besonderen Perspektive: es ergründet die eigene Geschichte und das eigene Erleben vor dem Hintergrund gesellschaftlicher Muster und Stratifizierungen, die – sozialwissenschaftlich gesprochen – die Sozialisation des Einzelnen prägen und damit seine Selbstwerdung bedingen. Den zentralen Bezugspunkt der Texte Ernaux‘ bildet dabei der Aufstieg der Autorin vom Arbeitermilieu der Eltern in die bürgerliche Bildungsschicht – sie versteht sich als „transfuge de classe“ (Klassenüberläuferin) – der mit Schmerz, Zerrissenheit, Schuld und Scham sowie Konfrontationen vielfältigster Art einherging und den sie mittels ihres dafür entwickelten Stilrepertoires beschreibt. Ihr Ziel ist es, Erlebnisse und Stationen ihrer Lebensgeschichte weder distanziert im Vokabular der Soziologie noch im affektiven Rahmen romanesker (Gefühls-)Kodes zu erzählen, sondern das Eindringen sozialer Distinktions­muster bis in die intimsten Bereiche von Körper und Denken aus der Innensicht, zugleich aber schnörkellos und sachlich, ohne jede Überhöhung zu beleuchten. Derart rücken Ernaux‘ autobiographische Erfahrungen ins Zentrum der Texte, denen sie im Sinne des von ihr postulierten autosoziobiographischen Schreibens eine eigene Form verleiht.
Im Seminar werden wir anhand von exemplarischen Texten Ernaux‘ – u.a. Les armoires vides (1974), La place (1983), Les années (2008) und Mémoire de fille (2016) – und markanten Umbruchsituationen die Herausbildung dieser autofiktionalen und autobiosoziographischen Schreibweise genauer nachvollziehen. Wir analysieren die Gründe für ihre Ablehnung der Fiktion, ebenso wie wir ihren Dialog mit den Arbeiten des Soziologen Pierre Bourdieu sowie die spezifischen Verfahren des „je transpersonnel“ und der „écriture plate“ untersuchen. Die Veranstaltung zielt darauf ab, die von Ernaux in ihrem Werk verfasste Geschichte der Sozialisation eines Mädchens, einer Frau und ihrer Eltern als Geschichte der Herausbildung eines eigenen Schreibmodells zu begreifen, in dem die Wahl des jeweiligen sprachlichen Ausdrucks, der Satzbau sowie Hervorhebungen und Fragmentierungen nicht nur auf einen bewussten Bruch mit dem Literaturkanon verweisen, sondern die eigene, mit gesellschaftlichen Netzwerken und Mustern verwobene Lebensrealität einer Klassenaufsteigerin im Rahmen eines literarischen Projektes bilanzieren. Erst dadurch wird das Erzählte – so u.a. die strenge Mutter, der ohnmächtige Vater, die Welt der katholischen Privatschule, die libertäre Kultur der Ferienkolonie, die Ungleichheit der Geschlechter in der bürgerlichen Ehe, der Verlust der Sprache und des affektiven Milieus der Kindheit – als engagierte Literatur erkennbar.

Description:
Der Surrealismus, der sich als Reaktion auf den Ersten Weltkrieg herausbildet, strebt nach einer neuen Perspektive auf die Welt, die er vor allem Kindern und Frauen sowie gesellschaftlich Abgestiegenen zutraut. Er entwirft Visionen, die wesentliche Erkenntnisse in Bezug auf das Leben und dessen Natur zutage befördern. Diese surrealen Visionen zielen auf Freiheit – Breton postuliert in seinem Manifeste du surréalisme (1924) die „liberté d’esprit“ – insbesondere von gesellschaftlichen Einschränkungen, fixierenden Zuschreibungen und vereinheitlichenden Normen, die die „vraie vie“, das eigentliche Leben, behindern. Den surrealen Visionen, die im Kontext des historischen Surrealismus theoretisch fundiert sind, soll in diesem Seminar in einem größeren literaturgeschichtlichen Zeitraum nachgegangen werden, bis in die Gegenwart hinein. Es soll diskutiert werden, welche Visionen vor dem Hintergrund der Krisen der Zeit gerade der Blickwinkel von Frauen, Kindern und gesellschaftlich Abgestiegenen eröffnet, angefangen beim historischen Surrealismus, der spezifisch unter diesem Aspekt fokussiert wird (André Breton und Claude Cahun), über Antoine de Saint-Exupérys während des Zweiten Weltkriegs erschienenen Weltbestseller Le petit prince (1943), die Kindheitsdarstellungen von Nathalie Sarraute und der aktuellen Nobelpreisträgerin Annie Ernaux, bis hin zu Virginie Despentes‘ erfolgreicher Vernon Subutex-Trilogie (2015–2017). Die (surrealen) Visionen sollen darüber hinaus auch im Film untersucht werden.
Querverbindungen zu und ein inhaltlicher Austausch mit den italianistischen Seminaren von Stephanie Neu-Wendel und Julia Görz sind innerhalb einer gemeinsamen Blocksitzung vorgesehen.
Teilnahmevoraussetzung ist die Übernahme eines Referats.
Primärliteratur:
André Breton: Manifeste du surréalisme (1924)

Laut Stockholmer Friedensforschungsinstitut befinden wir uns in einem Zeitalter der Krisen: Immobilienkrise, Bankenkrise, Wirtschaftskrise, Finanzkrise, Coronakrise, Energiekrise, Klimakrise… In diesem Seminar wollen wir uns der sprachlichen Konstruktion von Krisen widmen. Wir lernen Instrumentarien der Diskursanalyse kennen, mittels derer wir anhand konkreter linguistischer Konzepte (wie z.B. Neologismen, Metaphern, Euphemismen, Stigmawörter, Präsuppositionen etc.) analysieren können, wie Krisen auf sprachliche Weise geschaffen, verfestigt oder verschleiert werden und in welche Deutungsrahmen Sie jeweils eingebettet werden. Wir analysieren Krisendiskurse in den Bereichen der Presse, Politik, Wirtschaft oder schauen uns multimediale Text- und Gesprächssorten wie Weblogs oder satirische Musikvideos von franko- und hispanophonen Ländern näher an.
Das Thema des Seminars kann auch von Prof. Dr. Eckkrammer geprüft werden.

Description:
Das Seminar fokussiert auf das Italienische außerhalb Italiens. Es handelt sich um ein breites Feld, welches u.a. folgende Themenbereiche umfasst:
1) Das Italienische italienischer Auswander*innen alter und neuer Migrationswellen, dessen Stellungwert und kommunikative Reichweite in der Migrationsgesellschaft, die diagenerationale Weitergabe, Phänomene der Akkomodation, Attrition usw.;
2) Das Italienisch als Fremdsprache in der Welt, die Bedingungen dessen Unterrichts, der Stellenwert im Fremdsprachenkanon und im Bildungssystem des jeweiligen Landes, die Gründe, welche zur Wahl von Italienisch als Fremdsprache führen usw.;
3) Das Italienische der Nicht-Italiener*innen, das sich in kreativen Schöpfungen z.B. in den linguistic landscapes, in der Werbung und in Marken- bzw. Produktnamen (italienischer) Handelsgüter manifestiert;
4) Dir Rolle und die Funktion des Italienischen in bestimmten Subkulturen außerhalb Italiens, wie z.B. die Fußballfanwelt oder politische Bewegungen;
5) Schließlich das Italienische als ko-offizielle bzw. als Amtssprache im slowenischen und kroatischen Istrien bzw. im Tessin und in der Schweiz und das Verhältnis der lokalen Normen zur Norm in Italien.
In der Lehrveranstaltung werden wir unterschiedliche Aspekte aus diesen Themenbereichen beleuchten und exemplarisch aufzeigen.
Die Studierenden können kompetent das komplexe Phänomen des Italienischen außerhalb Italiens beschreiben und in seinen unterschiedlichen Facetten erkennen und kritisch beleuchten.
Aktive Teilnahme, Gruppen- und Plenumsdiskussionen, schriftliche Arbeit
Das Thema des Seminars kann auch von Frau Prof. Eckkrammer und Frau Dr. Kropp geprüft werden.

Description:
En toda reconstrucción histórica se plantea la cuestión de su periodización adecuada.
Nuestro seminario estará dedicado a reflexionar los diferentes propósitos de periodización que se han venido haciendo con respecto al español en América.
Al hacerlo, dedicaremos nuestra atención, por una parte, a las figuras eminentes y los acontecimientos mayores que suelen aparecer canónicamente en la historiografía de la lengua española. Por otra parte, procuraremos identificar los procesos de larga duración que vinculan el español en América con sus antecedentes peninsulares y permiten así comprender las causas y los fundamentos de la proverbial “unidad de la lengua española”. No obstante, esta afirmación es acertada solo en cierto grado, ya que, como aprenderemos, hay otros procesos de larga duración que dan pie, más bien, a la individualidad del español en América.

Description:
Dass das Französische in der Schule den Ruf einer „schwierigen“ Sprache hat, verdankt es vor allem seiner Orthographie, deren Prinzipien sich deutlich z.B. von der spanischen oder deutschen Orthographie unterscheiden.
Im Seminar soll zunächst die grundlegende Beziehung zwischen Phonemen und Graphemen thematisiert werden. Anschließend wird die historische Entwicklung des französischen Schriftsystems behandelt, teilweise im Vergleich zum Spanischen. Dabei sollen auch die Graphievarianten in elektronischen Medien (e-mail, chat, WhatsApp, soziale Netzwerke) berücksichtigt werden. Weiter soll auf die Möglichkeiten eingegangen werden, die die französische Orthographie (im Unterschied zur Phonie) im Rahmen mehrsprachigkeitsdidaktischer Ansätze bietet. Zuletzt geht es um aktuelle Orthographie­diskussionen – zum einen in Bezug auf orthographische Reformen (jeweils im Vergleich zur aktuellen Situation in Deutschland), zum anderen in Bezug auf die Neuverschriftung französischbasierter Kreol­sprachen.
Das Thema der Veranstaltung kann auch von Prof. Dr. Eckkrammer geprüft werden.

Description:
Das komparatistische Seminar wird ausgehend vom Mythos der kindermordenden Medea und der klassischen Fassung von Euripides verschiedene Variationen und feministische Aneignungen des Stücks in Prosa, Theater und Film analysieren. Dabei wird Medea als Figur gelesen, an der über Jahrhunderte hinweg Begriffe von Weiblichkeit, Mutterschaft und Fremdheit verhandelt werden.
Je nachdem, wie die Gruppe zusammengesetzt ist, sind, neben dem bereits genannten Stück von Euripides, Lektüren der Stücke von Pierre Corneille (Médée, 1635), Francisco de Rojas Zorrilla (Los encantos de Medea, 1792) und Dario Fo/Franca Rame (La Medea, 1977) geplant, der Romane von Christa Wolf (Medea. Stimmen, 1996), Marie NDiaye (La vengeance m’appartient, 2021) und eventuell Leïla Slimani (Chanson douce, 2016) sowie der Filme von Pier Paolo Pasolini (Medea, IT 1969), Alexandra Latishev (Medea, Costa Rica/Arg/Chile 2017) und Alice Diop (Saint Omer, F 2022)geplant (bzw. aus all den genannten Texten und Filmen wird eine für die Gruppe geeignete Auswahl getroffen werden).

Description:
Schon Bühler und Jakobson betonten, dass sprachliche Äußerungen immer auch Ausdruck der Gefühlswelt des Sprechers sind. Welche Gefühle das sind und in welcher Form sie sich auf die sprachliche Äußerung niederschlagen, soll Thema dieses Seminars sein. Denkbar (nach Präferenz der Teilnehmer*nnen) ist die Beschäftigung mit folgenden Themenkomplexen: Anfeuerungsrufe/Sprechchöre bei Sportveranstaltungen, Streitkommunikation, Schimpfwörter (Gauger), verbale Höflichkeit, Verführung und Annäherungsversuche, Sprache von Verliebten, Kommunikation in (mehrsprachigen) Paarbeziehungen (vgl. z.B. die jüngeren Untersuchungen von Dewaele), Lügen, Eltern-Kind-Kommunikation (motherese, vgl. Pinker), Sprache als Identitätsfaktor in mehrsprachigen Gesellschaften bzw. in Flucht- und Migrationskontexten, Dialekt und Identität, inklusives bzw. geschlechtergerechtes Sprechen, Männersprache/Frauensprache, Sprachgefühl, sprachlicher Humor, Umgang mit Ängsten und Hemmungen im Fremdsprachenunterricht. Die Beispiele sollen in erster Linie aus den romanischen Sprachen stammen, aber auch die Einbeziehung von Deutsch und Englisch ist möglich.
Das Thema der Veranstaltung kann auch von Prof. Dr. Eckkrammer geprüft werden.

Description:
Sinduda, la pragmática sociocultural del español constituye una de las ramas de investigación de mayor coyuntura en los últimos quince años. Su atractivo particular consiste en que esté dedicada a explicar fenómenos comunicativos que pertenecen a la experiencia cotidiana tanto de los estudiantes ELE como a aquella de los hablantes maternos: Aún hablando la misma lengua y disfrutando de la conocida unidad del español, los malentendidos e incomunicaciones entre hablantes de procedencia diferente son frecuentes. La pragmática sociocultural explora sistemáticamente las causas de este fenómeno. En este contexto, toma en cuenta la socialización de los individuos y los parámetros del comportamiento y la conducta en un sentido más lato. En el seminario asmilaremos los resultados principales de esta rama de investigación.

Description:
In the context of culture and communication, we come across a huge variety of terms and concepts. In this course, we take a critical look at major theoretical concepts like language, identity, stereotypes, othering and racism, gender and hybridity in the broad context of inter-/multi-/transcultural communication. Furthermore, we will highlight the challenges of intercultural communication and globalization with a special focus on the internet/social media. Finally, we will investigate the specific relationship between food and culture.

Along with analyzing the theoretical concepts, participants will also be involved in role-play, group work, activities, and discussions on the topic. In addition, students will have the chance to reflect upon personal intercultural experiences.
By the end of the semester, participants will have a broad understanding of the variety of concepts of intercultural communication. Further, participants will be able to critically evaluate different approaches based on theoretical input and interdisciplinary perspectives.  Due to the international setting of the class, participants will have their individual experiences in working and learning in an intercultural environment.

Students will have to prepare a short presentation, participate actively in in-class discussions and write a term paper (10–15 pages) to successfully complete this seminar.

Description:
Humanity has left its mark on earth. From carbon emissions to mass extinction, the human impact on our environment has been criticized for decades and has become an even bigger part of a political and societal discussion. Researchers from a variety of disciplines have therefore defined this environmental epoch as the Anthropocene. Years of human domination over nature, the idea of civilization over wilderness, and the environmental movements are all part of this new geological era. With natural sciences seemingly leading the conversation about the need for environmental changes, the humanities are finding their place in this discussion by reimagining existing dichotomies such as nature (non-humans) and culture (humans) and questioning set imaginaries of how environmental issues should be dealt with. But how do researchers in the humanities reset existing ideas on environmental issues? How can we use cultural artifacts such as literature, art, film, music and others to better understand the interconnectedness of humans and more-than-humans, and raise awareness for environmental issues? How do these topics play into ongoing discussions on environmental justice?
These are questions raised by the interdisciplinary field of the environmental humanities. Therefore, this class sets out to provide an overview of the field of the environmental humanities, uncover some of the theories out there, and look at key terms that define these theories and discussions.
Students will know key elements from the environmental humanities as a discipline. They will actively take part in discussions of main theories and concepts, and will analyze cultural or literary examples with the help of said theories.

Description:
Have you heard about the state of crisis we seem to be in lately? From the pandemic to political conflicts, financial challenges, social media, and climate change: crises have permeated important realms of our lives today. This course aims to illuminate different notions of “crisis” and analyse its causes and effects on culture, finance, literature, and politics. We will look beyond the buzzword, define the concept of the term, and develop an understanding of approaches by cultural theorists, writers, and experts in their respective fields.

Designed as a joint virtual project with Mid Sweden University, students from Mannheim and Sundsvall / Östersund will work together to address crisis and its ramifications on a weekly basis. In our international and interdisciplinary classroom, students are encouraged to take new perspectives on their subject and discuss crisis as a global phenomenon in an intercultural setting.

Description:
Understand the importance and challenges of expressing and representing culture in game design. Learn what culture is by thoroughly questioning yourself and by discussing key works focusing on identity-layers such as gender, sexuality, and personal conviction. Critically examine up-to-date topics of political relevance to game design and game studies by focusing on issues of representation, hegemony, toxicity, and awareness. Explore ways of communicating culture via dialogue and narrative, mechanics and related attributes in the example of visual novel games. Hone your talents in designing identity-related narrative and game mechanics in videogames by practicing with the Ren’Py engine.

Tuesday  (weekly) 14.02.2023 – 30.05.202310:15 – 11:45
Description:
Designed specifically to help students improve their English pronunciation, the Phonetics Lecture focuses on the key features of English phonetics and phonology. First, the course will cover speech production and perception (the anatomy and physiology of speech, acoustic as well as auditory phonetics) and introduce key phonological concepts. We will then focus on the patterns of speech sounds found in the English language (vowels and consonants) before moving on to an analysis of phonetic and phonological variation in English around the world. In combination with the Phonetics Übung – a weekly practice session – the lecture will help students become more aware of their own pronunciation problems in English while also teaching them to appreciate the phonological diversity of World Englishes. The course offers insights into some of the major problems German native speakers face when they learn English as a second language, thereby making it easier for future teachers to identify and, if necessary, rectify their pupils' pronunciation errors.

This includes, amongst many other things, the translation of reported speech, conditionals, the passive voice, and characteristic German grammar situations that do not exist in English, as well as all aspects of the use of adverbs, punctuation, etc. All this is supplemented by lessons on the use of a monolingual English dictionary as a sole translation aid as well as on the art of rephrasing, which helps the student to furnish translations that come across to the reader as natural as the original.

Description:
This course first reviews the systematic approach to translating on the basis of the strict rules of English word order that I apply in my Intermediate Translation courses, and then leads the student through the art of translating on an advanced level using texts from every imaginable category of written discourse. This includes texts from the world of business, technology and science; literary texts with diverse registers; highly complicated contract English; texts with seemingly incomprehensible phrasing; book reviews and blurbs; and many more. The grammar and vocabulary that is relevant to translating from German into English, in particular from the German point of view, will be covered as well as the dealing with grammar and vocabulary issues that are not directly translatable. A particular emphasis will be put on the issue of rephrasing as a translation tool to let the translated text come across to the English reader as natural as the original to the German reader. Translating is not only about translating, and this course will take your translations skills from the technical approach to a more flexible and creative level.

Description:
We use language in order to convey meaning to others. As such, meaning is one of the most essential aspects of language and communication. Semantics is the branch of linguistics, which, along with Pragmatics, deals with meaning in language. But what does 'meaning' actually mean? Are meanings dictionary definitions, objects in the world or speakers' intentions? Consider (1) – (3) illustrating these different types of meaning:

(1) 'Stout' means 'short and fat'
(2) In Sydney, 'the bridge' means the Harbour Bridge.
(3) By turning off the music I didn't mean that you should go.

This course will provide an overview of the field of linguistic Semantics and Pragmatics. It will introduce essential concepts for understanding the ways in which meaning can be analysed in linguistics, and acquaint students with major theoretical approaches and current debates in the field. We will investigate what units of language (morphemes, words, sentences) bear meaning and what conceptual tools are used to analyse meaning.

Throughout the course, we will work out connections between Semantics and other areas of linguistics you encountered in the Introduction to English Linguistics, but also with psychology, cognitive science, anthropology, and language acquisition. We will use cross-linguistic data to illustrate semantic phenomena and their range of variation. In each session, we will cover designated passages from the textbook along with selected original research papers.

Description:
It is a universal truth that language is constantly in flux – and the English language is the best example as it has changed enormously in the course of time like almost no other language. Just take, for instance, the first lines of the Lord's Prayer:

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come.

In Shakespeare's times, these lines looked different:
Our father which art in heauen,
hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdome come. 


Three hundred years before that, even more so:
Oure fadir that art in heuenes,
halewid be thi name; thi kyngdoom come to.  


And right at the beginning of English language history, these lines are almost unrecognizable:
ure fæder, þu þe on heofonum eardast, ...
Sy þinum weorcum halgad …Cyme þin rice wide.


This course will help you understand how the English language could change so drastically and develop into today's shape over the past centuries. It will provide a concise introduction to diachronic linguistics, which will also include an overview of the history of the English language. The course will be primarily concerned with language change on all levels of linguistic survey, and it will put key concepts which are familiar from the “Introduction to Linguistics” into a diachronic perspective. Accordingly, the main focus will be on phonological, morphological, syntactic as well as semantic and lexical change. All phenomena will be illustrated by examples taken from the English language history which spans almost sixteen centuries.
This class will be taught in the FSS2023 in an invertedclassroom format. This means that the course material will be presented as digital self-study materials for weekly asynchronous learning via ILIAS. A weekly synchronous session on campus (changes in restrictions due to covid pandemic pending) will give you the opportunity to discuss the prepared materials, apply what you’ve learned in text analysis tasks, work together on understanding the underlying mechanisms of language change and create a collaborative summary as a group for exam preparation.
Self-study materials will include a mix of readings, slides and video input as well as asynchronous tasks for the collaborative summary.

Description:
During this course students will learn the basic skills and methodologies necessary for the study of literature, especially with regard to anglophone letters and cultures. Students will learn how to analyze poetry, prose, and drama by studying major works of British and American literature from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries. The focus will be on the technical as well as cultural aspects of works of literature and their historical contexts. 

The course will start by answering the question what literature and the study of literature actually are and then provide an introduction to the three main genres of literature written in English (prose, drama, and poetry). In discussing these genres, we will take a closer look at key theoretical concepts and tools for the analysis of literary texts. Besides, we will also identify important periods in the history of British and American literature.

The lecture will be accompanied by mandatory tutorials for which you have to sign up separately. Please note that the tutorials are attached to specific lectures and are not interchangeable. While both lectures will cover the same content, the scheduling might differ slightly between sessions and it is therefore advisable to attend a tutorial with the tutors who are also attending the lecture in question.

Description:
“One reads poetry with one's nerves.”
– Wallace Stevens, “Adagia” 
In the first line of Marianne Moore’s programmatic poem “Poetry” (1919) the speaker declares “I, too, dislike it” and goes on to muse that “there are things that are important beyond all this fiddle.”

While Moore’s “Poetry” is, of course, ultimately a defense of poetic expression, the self-aware skepticism displayed in its opening lines probably speaks to many students of literature who often avoid any text with artificial line breaks at all cost: Too difficult, too dense, too obscure, too — well — poetic. Beyond alphabetizing rhyme schemes, counting meter, underlining metaphors, and then guessing whether the poem is either about “love” or “death” (a safe bet in many cases), students are frequently at a loss when it comes to engaging with this genre. 

This seminar will face the challenges head-on and explore American poetry from romanticism to the present not only as a genre of linguistic experimentation, but as a genre wrestling with BIG philosophical and social ideas and questions crucial to the American project at large. 

Moving from the spiritual nature poetry of the American Renaissance that served as a form of poetic nation building to Edgar Allan Poe’s borderline necrophilic love poems, from Walt Whitman’s sprawling celebrations of American democracy to Emily Dickinson’s consternating poetic riddles, from the experimentations of modernism to the political works of the Harlem Renaissance and contemporary poets like Amanda Gorman, this seminar will trace a condensed literary history of the United States from the 1830s to the 2020s as refracted through its poetic productions.  

The course will not boil down to counting rhymes and meter in order to produce empty formal descriptions of poems, but it will help you to read poetry, as the modern American poet Wallace Stevens declared, with your nerves by enabling you to appreciate American poetry in its many historical articulations.

Description:
Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction allows us to contemplate how humanity might cope when faced with mold-breaking events. Be it climatic, astronomical, pandemic or human-caused, the end of humanity as we know it has fascinated humankind for centuries and can be traced back to Babylonian, biblical and other religious mythologies. This fascination grows steadily, providing us every year with more and more examples on the current prevalent cultural fears in our societies.
These narratives’ function as cautionary tales compels readers to contemplate present times and consider change in order to avoid a disastrous future. Some also question current societies' chance at a redemptive arc, stipulating that the concept of progress might require the destruction of an existing state of affairs that allows humanity to start over with a clean slate. In dealing with fictional contemporaneous examples of cataclysmic events we will explore various theories on the ways in which the world could fall apart and how humanity will manage to cope.

Description:

Language seems to be unique to humans. Yet, there is a long-standing debate what underlies the human language faculty and how language relates to other cognitive domains. While some argue that language is an abstract system of thought, others entertain the idea that language is “embodied” and tightly linked to our sensory experiences and cognitive functioning. This course provides you with an overview of the main findings and theoretical positions in cognitive linguistics. In particular, we will discuss how sensory experiences may give rise to abstract linguistic concepts and how language processing recruits domain-general cognitive capacities. We will contrast this approach with formal linguistic accounts to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of both views.

Description:
Marketing communication and research heavily rely on language. Advertisers use language to convince consumers to buy a certain product. Market researchers ask consumers what they think about a product or what kind of product consumers think they need. Obviously, the success of such marketing efforts depends on linguistic and psycholinguistic processes. Recently, the application of psycholinguistic theory to marketing communication has become a topic of great prominence in the field of consumer behavior. The use of certain linguistic structures aims at increasing activating and cognitive psychological processes, or at measuring such non-linguistic psychological variables as attention, attitude, and memory. The course provides a range of interdisciplinary contents and sources recent empirical research. It has high practical relevance for applied research on consumer behavior and marketing communication.

Description:
In this seminar, we will address contemporary literary texts penned by authors of Arab and / or Muslim background at a time when Arabs and / or Muslims have been viewed with suspicion in the wake of 9/11 and the inception of the ‘War on Terror,’ and when narratives about the cultural incompatibility of the West and Islam (Samuel Huntington’s ‘clash of civilization’ thesis) hold considerable purchase in Western societies. We will analyze the political and historical contexts in which the literary texts are embedded and which they address, paying particular attention to these writers’ engagements with hegemonic articulations of Arab / Muslim masculinities and femininities, and with heteropatriarchal structures in parts of the Arab / Muslim world. We will also critically engage with the legacy of ‘colonial feminism,’ that is, the ways that Western empires have historically justified their presence in ‘'the Orient’ with the rhetoric of women’s rights.

Description:
In 1970, the poet and musician Gil Scot-Heron wrote that “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” advising those wanting to advance social justice issues to get off their sofas and into the streets. However today, it could be very likely that the next revolution will be tweeted, hashtagged, liked and turned into a plethora of memes.  For example, NBC news declared the summer of 2020 as the “summer of digital protest” as more people not only voiced their political opinions online, but actually used digital platforms as new spaces for social movements. After the murder of George Floyd and the dissemination of the video of his death online, not only were American streets full of outraged protesters, but much of the organization of protest events, news coverage and even fundraising to cover bail for arrested protesters took place online. The #BlackLivesMatter movement emerged like a ‘shot heard round the world.’ However, when in response, the online #BlackoutTuesday hashtag was promoted (where users could post a black square in place of their faces on Facebook) to show support for #BLM, outcries of “Slacktivism!” could be seen everywhere online. Can internet activism effect real social change?

This course will discuss the culture of protest in the USA and how it has developed through social media. Topics such as the digital political participation on social networks, the effects of big data on social issues, media hype and Twitter storms will help us to determine what has changed from earlier social protest movements. The sociologist Zeynep Tufecki has pointed out that social media has its limits – it can provide the spark, but can internet activism keep a movement going? By comparing movements such as those for Civil Rights, Women’s Rights and LGBT Rights to today’s digital political culture, we will attempt to discover how far political action can go and what it can achieve online.

Description:
Fantasy and Science Fiction are typically ridiculed as escapist dreams produced for teenagers. Indeed, they are often seen as the ”lowbrow, popular, pulp, childish and lightweight poor relation of more highbrow, grownup and serious forms based on the realist (mimetic) arts.” (Jacqueline Furby and Claire Hines) In recent years, however, with the upsurge of interest in the fantasy film, a number of academic studies that deal with a wide range of issues rooted in the fantasy and science fiction genres have documented a shift in academic perception. In keeping with this shift, this course will offer an in-depth look at both genres, supplying theoretical and contextual approaches with the help of which the complex imagery of the science fiction and fantasy film can be decoded. We will then use these insights to analyse popular science fiction and fantasy films (Star Wars, the Harry Potter films, The Lord of the Rings trilogy), treating them not as entities devoid of social commentary (hence the title of the course, Other Worlds?) but as products of dominant values, beliefs and fears and thus as cultural products deeply rooted in our world.

Description:
Marketing communication and research heavily rely on language. Advertisers use language to convince consumers to buy a certain product. Market researchers ask consumers what they think about a product or what kind of product consumers think they need. Obviously, the success of such marketing efforts depends on linguistic and psycholinguistic processes. Recently, the application of psycholinguistic theory to marketing communication has become a topic of great prominence in the field of consumer behavior. The use of certain linguistic structures aims at increasing activating and cognitive psychological processes, or at measuring such non-linguistic psychological variables as attention, attitude, and memory. The course provides a range of interdisciplinary contents and sources recent empirical research. It has high practical relevance for applied research on consumer behavior and marketing communication.

Description:
In this seminar we will discuss three novels and a film focusing on the complex entanglement of memory, history, and imagination. William Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom! (1936) and David Bradley's The Chaneysville Incident (1981) both stage the dialogic reconstruction of past events using the imagination and, moreover, how individual and collective memory intersect. Christopher Nolan's film Memento (2000) is a neo-noir mystery thriller dealing with memory loss, and Jennifer Egan's recent The Candy House (2022) features a technology thal allows people to download or externalize their memories “and to share every memory in exchange for access to the memories of others.” These fictional exploration of versions of memory at the same time confront the reader with the history of the US-American South, racism and the legacy of slavery, with the use of different levels of time and nonlinear and visually experimental forms of narration as well as effects of new technologies on individuals and society.
