Beschreibung:
“Old money” versus “new money”: In the decades around 1900, famously declared as the “Gilded Age” by Mark Twain, this distinction separated long-established families from newcomers who had gained their wealth from new industries such as steel and oil. The “Nouveaux riches” with their incredible wealth shook established hierarchies and social orders. Whereas they demanded social recognition, established families looked down on the newly rich as “parvenus” and did everything to prevent them from climbing the social ladder. The conflicts between “old” and “new” money also inspired and were carried out in numerous novels of the time. Apart from historical texts, we will read two exemplary literary works, William Dean Howells’s novel The Rise of Silas Lapham (1885) and Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby (1925). The course combines the perspectives of American Studies and of historiography, as we will bring historical sources into dialog with literary texts. In doing so, we will also reflect on the methodological implications of such an interdisciplinary approach.

Empfohlene Voraussetzungen

This course is open to students of history and of English/American literature. Interest in interdisciplinary work and a willingness to read (long) novels in English are required. Group discussions will be in English.

Ethics of Digitalisation - Emerging Issues in Business and Society
Ethik der Digitalisierung – neue Fragen für Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft

Digitalisation has brought many new but also long-standing ethical questions into the public debate. A well-known issue of autonomous driving, for example, is the thoroughly discussed trolley dilemma. Regarding social media and big data, however, there are new kinds of challenges and also ethical problems. The seminar “Ethics of Digitalisation – Emerging Issues in Business and Society” will discuss a great variety of those topics including but not limited to the following questions: “Is there a ‘balance’ to be found between competing rights of privacy and security–or is the setting up of such a balance misleading?” (Bernal 2016) What kind of moral problems arise with an increased usage of algorithms, for example in recruiting? How does artificial intelligence change the way we work today and in the future? What does it mean to make digital design “value sensitive” and whose’ values are the criterion? How can we integrate robots into our society? How are we supposed to treat them? What kind of risks and opportunities does “big data” bring?
In summary, the course will engage with issues such as surveillance, artificial intelligence, digital enhancement, robots for sex and war, ethics of algorithms, digital immortality, value sensitive design etc. It will not only provide knowledge about relevant issues that concern us all, but it will also enable you to discuss various issues of digitalisation from an ethical point of view.
Administration:
Please bring all texts printed (or on a tablet/laptop) to the seminar. Read them carefully and highlight important arguments or questions. In order to support your reading habit, you will receive weekly reminders and tasks for each article. Participation is a key element of the course and various pedagogical methods are used to foster an in-depth understanding of the texts. There are no presentations that need to be prepared but there will be a lot of group work. Therefore, reading all texts carefully is mandatory for a successful and engaging seminar.

Beschreibung:
Die Art und Weise, wie Menschen heute miteinander kommunizieren und interagieren, hat sich innerhalb von nur wenigen Jahren signifikant verändert. Anstatt Medien nur zu bestimmten Zeiten und in spezifischen Situationen zu nutzen, um Informationen oder Unterhaltungs­angebote zu verarbeiten oder zu erleben, werden diese heute von Vielen nahezu permanent verwendet, um qua Internet mit den unterschiedlichsten Angeboten und Personen in Verbindung zu sein. Und das auch in Situationen, in denen diese Mediennutzer/innen bereits mit anderen Aktivitäten beschäftigt sind. Fast erscheint es so, als gäbe es kaum noch soziale Situationen oder Kontexte, in denen Menschen offline sind bzw. nicht simultan mit mehreren Angeboten und Personen verbunden sind.   
Im Rahmen dieses Hauptseminars werden aktuelle theoretische Entwicklungen diskutiert, die sich mit diesem Phänomen des „permanently online, permanently connected“ beschäftigen, indem ein dazu im vergangenen Jahr publiziertes Buch kritisch gelesen und auf spezifische kommunikations­wissenschaft­liche Problemstellungen angewandt wird.

Beschreibung:
Nature and culture are often seen as opposing concepts: nature as the pristine but wild environment and culture as the civilized sphere of humanity working against nature. Bill McKibben and other environmentalists, however, have ridiculed the socially constructed nature-culture binary and ask for an inclusive approach to the environment that is both nature and culture. But how do we overcome this century old binary? How can we define societies within nature and nature within culture? In how far is nature different from wilderness? And in how far is nature influenced by culture and vice versa? In a world altered by human-induced climate change and an ongoing sustainability crisis, these questions are of the essence and concern us as individuals, as local communities and as a globalized society.
This class sets out to discover some of the theories concerning the nature-culture divide out there. We will be reading these theories against practical examples from literature, arts and film as well as protected physical spaces such as nature reserves and national parks. We will also look at the ongoing discussion on sustainable lifestyles from a cultural studies perspective.
The main goal is to educate ourselves to be part of the environmental discussion as well as ideas of protecting nature against human exploitation, which includes looking at current political agendas across the globe.

Requirements:
1) Participation, participation, participation!!! The texts you will have to read for this class are controversial and the examples ambiguous, so take part in this conversation, be invested in the ideas presented and make informed decisions for yourselves on this topic.
2) READ THE TEXTS!!!
3) Transcript: In groups of 2-3 pick one session and write a transcript. This means that you should note down important points made in class, questions raised, arguments discussed, and examples presented.
4) Comment: Pick one of the sessions' prompts and write a comment discussing the prompt with the help of the texts we have read and talked about in class as well as your own take on the readings. 
5) Final Exam: The exam will include 3 sections: 1) Multiple-Choice; 2) Short-Answers; 3) Comment.

Beschreibung:
Most of us believe that our health is primarily our own problem: If we eat right, we will not get sick. If we exercise, we will stay healthy. But in reality, societies create, sustain, and destroy a person’s physiological and mental wellbeing, often simultaneously. The underlying power structures that determine health are less apparent than a virus.

We will discuss why it is important to challenge the everyday practices that often seem trivial. What role does art play in these processes?
  1. The first sessions will serve to create a shared toolbox. This will help us to identify cultures of violence and to situate them within their historical, political, and socio-economic context.
  2. Throughout the semester, different forms of group work, discussions, and short discussion prompts will serve to gain an insight into what we consider normal.
This seminar combines insights from political science, public health, and the humanities.
  • the power structures we enco­unter every day;
  • how the arts challenge cultural boundaries or perpetuate them;
  • and ultimately, how our own health depends on these structures.

Maculinities in the Americas
“Well, there are some things a man just can’t run away from.” – John Wayne
[T]here have always been men who were too poor, too queer, too sensitive, too disabled, too compassionate or simply too clever to submit to whatever model of „masculinity“ society relied upon to keep its wars fought and its factories staffed. „Traditional masculinity“, like „traditional femininity“, is a form of social control, and seeking to reassert that control is no answer to a generation of young men who are quietly drowning in a world that doesn't seem to want them. – Laurie Penny


Most of us have a pretty clear idea of what masculinity is: masculinity is what men have. While such as statement seems uncontroversial to most, it relies on a circular logic in which men define that (masculinity) by which they are in turn defined. Not only will those who want to find exclu­sively masculine traits – shared by all men but not by others ,e.g. women – find this task impossi­ble, thinkers in the critical study of men and masculinity have moreover long used masculinity only in the plural. Models such as R.W. Connell’s idea of “hegemonic masculinity” differentiates between different masculinities that exist in relation to each other, as well as to femininity, and are constantly redefined.
In this course we will examine expressions of masculinities in different cultures and from hegemonic masculi­nity to ‘queer’ and female masculinities. We will begin by familiarizing our­selves with some of the main ideas and concepts in the critical study of men and mascu­li­ni­ties. We will then proceed to analyze films, novels, plays, short stories and other cultural texts in terms of their representation of gender. While the focus will be on masculinities, gender roles define themselves by opposition; studying one form of masculinity therefore only makes sense when it is read against femininity and other masculinities. Texts studied will cover different periods as well as different national cultures from North and South America.
The goal of the course is thus to question common sense understandings of masculinities and to offer tools that see gender roles as more shifting and in dialogue with society as a whole. The course will also give you an insight into analyzing cultural texts in various media, particularly in terms of its gender depictions. It will furthermore provide insights into narratives from different times and cultures and see which aspects of masculinity change across time and space and which are more resilient.

Requirements: The course is taught as a block seminar. This means that we will meet for three or four double sessions at a time (4.5 or 6 hours). This makes the course much more rewarding, but it also depends heavily on your preparation. I will send you the syllabus ahead of time. It is absolutely essential that you prepare the texts that we discuss that day. Start as early as possible, since you will have to do quite a bit of reading in a short period.

Beschreibung:
This course asks how different nations across the Americas (including the U.S., Canada, and Brazil) as well as Australia and New Zealand can be analyzed as settler colonial nation-states, i.e. states that are founded and continue to be constituted through Indigenous dispossession and non-native colonial settlement. If one views settler colonialism as a form of domination intent on Native elimination as central to the workings of these states, what consequences does that have for a reconsideration of the U.S. American self-image of a „nation of immigrants“, Canada's proudly exhibited multicultural liberalism, or the racial ideal of „mestizaje“ in several Latin American countries - and how are current anti-immigration rhetorics and policies in Australia and the U.S. also a form of displaying white settler state nationalism? Conversely, the course also seeks to consider how Indigenous peoples across all of these sites of settler colonialism continue to assert their presence in social, cultural, and political terms, such as through the water protection activism at Standing Rock in resistance to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in 2016, thus engaging in anti-colonial struggles that give shape to a politics of decolonization and Indigenous futurity.

Requirements: The course requires active participation in the form of participation in an online discussion forum (ILIAS), and group presentations. The final exam is in the form of a short term paper.

The American Civil War (1861-1865)
No other event in US-American history has been researched so thoroughly as the Civil War. Still, the meaning of the war and its legacy remain controversial as the recent debates on Confederate monuments in the United States illustrate.
This class aims to study the collapse of American democracy during the 1850s and the outbreak of the war following Lincoln’s victory in the Presidential election of 1860. Topics will include the military aspects of the war, but also its impact on American society, economy and culture. In addition, the class will try to show how the controversy about the meaning of the Civil War impacts American society until the present day.

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 in our language lab – 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.

Beschreibung:
This course is designed to introduce beginning students to the central topics and terms in current (English) linguistics. We will discuss the sound system of English, how words are formed and modified in English and how words are combined to form sentences. Or in technical terms: We will cover: phonetics, phonology, morphology, semantics, syntax, major (syntactic) contrasts between English and German and occasionally glimpse at the historical development of English. We will also occasionally look at how these topics are relevant in language acquisition, language storage and processing in the human brain, and language variation over time and in society.
Note that this class will be taught as a flipped classroom, which means that you prepare sessions individually by reading the textbook chapter and watching video clips online BEFORE the sessions. In class your questions will be answered and tasks and problem cases solved. You?ll learn more about this in the first session.

Beschreibung:
Of how many words does the sentence Mary'll go to London next week and she is planning to fly to the states next summer consist of? Some may answer 18, some 17, others 15 or 16 and all of these answers could be right.
Starting from the question, what a WORD actually is in this course we will continue to analyze the internal parts of words and investigate the difference between inflection and word formation; and then look at English word formation processes in detail. Discussing for example why we can create the word mice-eater and rat-eater but not *rats-eater and what the internal structure of words like un-help-ful-ness is.

Beschreibung:
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 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.

Beschreibung:
Unmatched by any other place in the world, the London West End constitutes the very heart of (British) theatre and drama. Dozens of new plays premiere every season, featuring world class directors and famous Hollywood stars, commenting on a wide range of topics: immigration, Brexit, genetic engineering, ageism, sexual abuse, and the nature of power, to mention only a few. Yet, unlike novels, which need a much longer lead time, plays can react quickly, offering a condensed commentary on contemporary issues within the political, social, and economic discourse within a relatively short period of time. Therefore, they are perfectly suited to analyse the present. Even more, produced within a political climate defined by the #me2-movement, the European migrant crisis and unparalleled scientific progress, these plays promise a compelling night at the theatre – or a fascinating read for the class room.
This seminar will centre around four plays in particular, all of which premiered in the West End last year. These highly up-to-date texts have their finger on the pulse of time and are therefore (entirely) under-researched. Students will therefore have to break new grounds of research and are invited to bring in their own thoughts and ideas.

Beschreibung:
Constituting the central cultural medium that won over Northern Americans for the cause of abolition, slave narratives were written by African Americans who had escaped the South’s “peculiar institutionˮ and educated the Northern public about the hardship and dehumanization they had endured in bondage. The slave narratives’ form and reception by the public was riddled with ambivalence: written in the first person, the slave narrative allowed former slaves, who had been treated as less-than-human, to assert their subjectivity as individuals; at the same time, slave narratives by default featured a preface by a white editor testifying to the author’s trustworthiness, which implicitly reified racist stereotypes of Blacks as mendacious and pathological. Moreover, the public took selective note of the violent formations slavery entailed: narratives that related sexual exploitation of female slaves at the hands of whites, for instance, were largely ignored in their time.

Roughly a century after the abolition of slavery, neo-slave narratives, that is, fictional accounts of slavery penned by African American authors, started emerging, most notably Toni Morrison’s novel Beloved. Recent years have witnessed a renaissance of the neo-slave narrative, e.g. Steve McQueen’s film Twelve Years a Slave or Colson Whitehead’s novel The Underground Railroad. Paying particular attention to each neo-slave narrative’s aesthetic strategies, we will analyze the function these fictional negotiations of slavery assume in their respective historical context. Familiarizing ourselves with concepts such as cultural trauma and cultural memory, we will appraise the fundamental impact slavery has had on the African American community. We will also examine to what extent conditions of Black unfreedom and confinement have persisted, in transmuted form, beyond the abolition of slavery and beyond the passage of the Civil Rights legislation.

Beschreibung:
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. In this course, we build up psycholinguistic background knowledge and simultaneously analyze how this knowledge has been applied to the marketing context. Selected topics are:
  • Theoretical foundations of the interfaces between language, cognition and consumer behavior
  • How principles of sound symbolism and human word recognition can inform brand name construction
  • How needs, expectations and ethics determine the potentials and limits of subliminal advertising
  • How linguistic framing manipulates consumer decision making
  • How exploiting semantic relations provides structure for consumer learning
  • How flouting the Maximes of Conversation gains attention and raises awareness in behavioral change marketing
  • How conceptual metaphors in marketing communications realize heuristic and decorative functions
  • How bilingual language processing affects cognitive and emotional consumer reactions
  • How narrative structure in commercials affects memory and emotions

The course uses a practical approach and continuously shows how theory and research evidence are relevant to analyze and criticize authentic examples from marketing practice. Moreover, we work on three extensive case studies that allow students to integrate and productively apply the course content. The cases involve developing a brand name for a pharmaceutical product, building an awareness campaign for a non-profit organization and creating a story for a crowd-sourcing campaign of a start-up company. The cases simulate agency pitches where students work in small teams (agencies), present and competitively peer-vote to select the best campaign.

A central part of the course is that student teams conduct their own research project building on previous research discussed in class.

Beschreibung:
Digitalization is the journey to using digital resources and media more. Education is supposed to digitalize. Often this is simply equated with every pupil should have their own tablet. However, this view is shortsighted. Our society is changing fundamentally due to digital developments. At the same time many teachers complain about lagging behind the general development because of outdated technical equipment and pseudo-digitalization (= there is excellent hardware available but no one is able to use it appropriately). German teachers in particular are among the first to develop a critical view towards new media (Biermann in Tagesspielgel online 12.4.2018). About one third of the pupils are click-competent but not digitally competent (ICILS study 2017). However, the Bildungs­plan 2016 mentions media competence prominently as a key competence to be developed.
So what role could and should digitalization play at school? We will take a step into the direction of answering this question by trying out digital media and evaluating the effects. In this course you will develop your own digital learning material on English grammar for 5th graders.
A first step is to develop a thorough understanding of the grammatical phenomena to be taught and practised. Then the grammar has to be didactically reduced and prepared. The developed material will actually be put into usage via a cooperation with a Gymnasium. Finally, we are going to evaluate the material via pre- and posttesting. Finally, participants of the course will reflect on possible improvements of the material in their class portfolio.

Beschreibung:
„Old money“ versus „new money“: In the decades around 1900, famously declared as the „Gilded Age“ by Mark Twain, this distinction separated long-established families from newcomers who had gained their wealth from new industries such as steel and oil. The „Nouveaux riches“ with their incredible wealth shook established hierarchies and social orders. Whereas they demanded social recognition, established families looked down on the newly rich as „parvenus“ and did everything to prevent them from climbing the social ladder. The conflicts between „old“ and „new“ money also inspired and were carried out in numerous novels of the time. Apart from historical texts, we will read two exemplary literary works, William Dean Howells's novel The Rise of Silas Lapham (1885) and Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby (1925).
The course combines the perspectives of American Studies and of historiography, as we will bring historical sources into dialog with literary texts. In doing so, we will also reflect on the methodological implications of such an interdisciplinary approach.

Beschreibung:
Taught in collaboration with two Canadian universities – Guelph and Waterloo –, this course will explore a wide range of core topics that define the Canadian experience, ranging from concepts of Canadian multi-culturalism and ethnicity to representations of Canadian landscapes and environments.
 
We will not approach these topics in a traditional teacher-centred/classroom-centred way; instead, Mannheim students will be paired off with Canadian students from Guelph and Waterloo and will then explore a chosen topic (selected in the first week of class) together. Using a number of tools at your disposal – chat rooms, skype, twitter, blogs etc – you will exchange ideas online and lay the groundwork for a presentation on your chosen topic in the second half of term. In your interactive sessions, your Canadian peers will answer questions you have devised to shed light on your chosen topic; in turn, you will answer questions about German culture and society devised by your Canadian co­unterparts (all of which are German studies students). In this way, you will not only gain unique insights into what it means to be Canadian but also improve your English language skills and help second-language learners of German gain a sense of what it means to grow up and live in Germany.
 
Please note: Since we will be discussing the key features of the course in our first session, it is vital you come to our first lesson!

Beschreibung:
The nature of Britishness and of British history in general is far easier to proclaim than to define. Nevertheless, this course will attempt to charter the chequered history of the Isles, paying close attention to the socio-political currents that shaped present-day Britain. This gargantuan task may sound daunting at first, but the course is designed specifically to offer and overview rather than an in-depth analysis of historical contexts. Since prior knowledge of historical events is not a prerequisite, history illiterates are more than welcome to join the course!

Beschreibung:
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 Matrix, 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.

Beschreibung:
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. In this course, we build up psycholinguistic background knowledge and simultaneously analyze how this knowledge has been applied to the marketing context. Selected topics are:
  • Theoretical foundations of the interfaces between language, cognition and consumer behavior
  • How principles of sound symbolism and human word recognition can inform brand name construction
  • How needs, expectations and ethics determine the potentials and limits of subliminal advertising
  • How linguistic framing manipulates consumer decision making
  • How exploiting semantic relations provides structure for consumer learning
  • How flouting the Maximes of Conversation gains attention and raises awareness in behavioral change marketing
  • How conceptual metaphors in marketing communications realize heuristic and decorative functions
  • How bilingual language processing affects cognitive and emotional consumer reactions
  • How narrative structure in commercials affects memory and emotions

The course uses a practical approach and continuously shows how theory and research evidence are relevant to analyze and criticize authentic examples from marketing practice. Moreover, we work on three extensive case studies that allow students to integrate and productively apply the course content. The cases involve developing a brand name for a pharmaceutical product, building an awareness campaign for a non-profit organization and creating a story for a crowd-sourcing campaign of a start-up company. The cases simulate agency pitches where students work in small teams (agencies), present and competitively peer-vote to select the best campaign.

A central part of the course is that student teams conduct their own research project building on previous research discussed in class.

Beschreibung:
If we want to gain a deeper understanding of human language, it is useful to analyze linguistic phenomena across very different languages in order to identify general linguistic properties and mechanisms. This is what linguistic typology is about: Typologists study and classify languages all over the world according to structural characteristics. In this course we will analyze structural properties of English from a cross-linguistic perspective to see how similar, or how different, English is compared to other languages in the world. The goals of this course is to make students familiar with the core concepts of typology while at the same time shedding light on the structure of English from a different angle. Topics to be discussed will include basic fields of linguistics like phonology, morphology, syntax and the lexicon. In addition, we will also have a brief look at typology from a diachronic perspective.

Beschreibung:
Since the 1990s a new genre has been emerging in Anglophone literature called climate change fiction. These texts (novel and films mostly) imaginatively create a world in which anthropogenic climate change has radically altered the social, political, and cultural environment as we know it today. Often written in the dystopian mode, they depict the consequences of climate collapse as a catastrophe. Other novels (or films) which are not set in the future reflect the present anticipation of catastrophe still hoping to show a way out of the impending disaster. Contrary to scientific research which is uncertain about the exact development of anthropogenically induced climate change and often inaccessible to the common reader who cannot fully grasp the complexity and immensity of changes on a global and apparently distant phenomenon. Narrative genres are thus, as Ursula Heise argues, „cultural tools for organizing information about risks into intelligible and meaningful stories.“

In this seminar we will read several climate change novels and possibly view at least one film (for example The Day After Tomorrow) and interpret them with the help of social risk theories by Ulrich Beck, Anthony Giddens and others. We will define the new nature of risk in a time of large-scale ecological changes in which, as Beck writes, „the very idea of controllability, certainty or security collapses.“ We will especially deal with the question how narrative contributes to the climate change debate and discuss its cultural function.
