08-31-4-M7-4 Human rights in the external politics of the EU (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 12:00 - 14:00 GW1 B0080

Das Seminar beginnt am 18.04.17

In this seminar, the meaning of issues such as human rights protection, humanitarian intervention, international criminal law, etc. for the process of EU integration will be problematized with the aid of different theoretical approaches.
Although the focus will be on how human rights are reflected toward outside, i.e. as an instrument of foreign policy, the seminar will also ponder upon their role in the construction of a European identity more in general.
The seminar will encourage the discussion with students based on proposed texts.

Das Seminar beginnt am 19.04.17

This seminar aims to give an overview of the politics of enlargement of the European Union in the region of the Western Balkans (WB). It first briefly contextualizes the WB accession process in the broader history of EU enlargement, to then focus on the various WB countries’ accession process with the aid of single case studies. Thereby, it analyzes the various political, economic and social factors affecting these countries’ progress toward EU integration. Hence, the seminar will also familiarize students with the region’s outstanding issues in its transition toward democracy, e.g. its political evolution, the comeback of nationalism, and its emerging social movements.
The seminar will encourage the discussion with students based on proposed texts. It allows those who are particularly interested to participate with an oral presentation on a chosen topic within the seminar’s program.

10-76-4-D2b-1 Key Topics in Linguistics: The sounds of English around the world (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Do 12:15 - 13:45 GW2 A3390 (CIP-Labor FB 10) (2 SWS)

English is spoken as a first language by about 350 million people and as second or foreign language by over 600 million speakers, worldwide. Given this multitude of speakers, with varying (i.e. linguistic) backgrounds, we are very likely to encounter many different forms of spoken English in our lives. These may differ on several levels; however, often most noticeably in form of phonological and phonetic features leading to utterances which “sound different” (see e.g. “Mi cyaan believe it” Michael Smith). But what does this really mean and how can we describe these differences or innovations appropriately?
This class will introduce students to a number of varieties of spoken English from around the globe and theoretical concepts central to language change and contact (e.g. models of World Englishes, standard /national/first language, etc.). We will examine spoken data and will take a look at variety-specific phonological processes and features, but also similarities. The main focus of this course will be on the sounds of Postcolonial Englishes (e.g. Indian English) and contact languages such as English-based pidgins and creoles (e.g. Jamaican Creole, Nigerian Pidgin English).

Requirements:
BA E-SC D2b:
• Active participation: obligatory readings, some homework, some in-class (group) tasks, short presentation
• Oral presentation (20min, Studienleistung); term paper (10-12 pages, Prüfungsleistung)

SIK5:
• Active participation: obligatory readings, some homework, some in-class (group) tasks , short presentation
• Oral presentation (20min) + term paper (10-12 pages)

10-76-4-SP2-02 Culture and Communication b: Can films broaden and build our virtues and character strengths? (in englischer Sprache)

Übung
ECTS: 3

Termine:
wöchentlich Do 12:15 - 13:45 GW2 B2880 GW2 A4330 (2 SWS)

This culture and communication seminar will offer students an opportunity to critically examine aspects of English-speaking North American culture through film. Our research-based approach to viewing and analysing “positive psychology” films will emphasise learning to identify and then consciously look for character and signature strengths and/or other positive phenomena being modelled therein. This approach will introduce participants to practical ways of discovering and fostering one’s own strengths. The seminar is very experiential in nature. As such, participants can anticipate regular classroom discussion and activities to augment the assignments and supplementary background literature provided. A major objective of this seminar is to allow you opportunity to critically analyse, discuss, and present your perceptions of the themes introduced.

Specific Focus:
This fourth semester practical language seminar will emphasise rhetoric and oral presentation techniques.

Important notes:

1. Those students in situations of exceptional hardship (who can truly only take part in a specific group despite the other parallel sections) are asked to contact the lecturer for your class of choice directly. It is imperative that you please do so BEFORE the end of the registration period (i.e. before March 15, 2017). In such situations, you will be given the opportunity to plead your case (provide proof of the conflict you have) and an effort will be made to accommodate your request where applicable.

2. Once the registration process ends at 18:00 on March 15, 2017, you will automatically be notified (via Stud.IP) whether you have a seat in this seminar.

10-76-4-SP2-03 Culture and Communication c: Black Lives Matter (in englischer Sprache)

Übung
ECTS: 3

Termine:
wöchentlich Do 10:15 - 11:45 GW2 A4020 (2 SWS)

This culture and communication seminar will offer students an opportunity to critically examine aspects of the Black Lives Matter movement through film, literature, and music. To provide an adequate framework for this seminar, our primarily research-based approach to the theme shall commence by examining racial identity development. Thus, we shall first grapple with understanding whiteness in a white context, blackness in a white context, and identity development in people of colour who share similar patterns of racial, ethnic, or cultural oppression. The remaining syllabus is a partial adoption of the course: “Black Lives Matter” designed by Frank Leon Roberts (frankroberts@nyu.edu) at BlackLivesMatterSyllabus.com.

Specific Focus:
While this fourth semester practical language seminar will touch on rhetoric and oral presentation techniques, regular reading assignments and oral communication skills shall be our focus. Moreover, a willingness to engage in meaningful, productive dialogue to raise consciousness about “race, resistance, and populist protest” will be of paramount significance.

NB: This seminar is part of a collaborative focus on Black Lives Matter and the Critique of White Supremacy.

10-76-4-SP2-04 Culture and Communication d: Introduction to Positive Education (in englischer Sprache)

Übung
ECTS: 3

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 08:15 - 09:45 GW2 B3010 (Kleiner Studierraum) SH D1020 (2 SWS)

Can one cultivate skills, which increase motivation, resilience, and positive emotions when it comes to the learning processes? Indeed, Positive Education aims to impart exactly these skills and more. This culture and communication seminar will offer students an opportunity to experience and better understand this approach to fostering one’s individual development throughout the learning process. The science of positive psychology is the foundation of this evidence-based framework which can be applied in educational learning contexts to actively promote students’ psychological well-being and the development of personal resources essential for flourishing.

While the seminar will offer participants an opportunity to identify and further develop their own skills and strengths, a further clear goal is to critically analyse and discuss how the class material could be adopted and applied in other educational contexts with children and youth in particular. A selection of themes we shall discuss include identifying and building character and signature strengths as well as fostering mindfulness, strong social relationships, and self-determined forms of motivation to engage.

Specific Focus:
While this fourth semester practical language seminar will touch on rhetoric and oral presentation techniques, the primary focus of this seminar is on actively engaging in, reflecting on, and discussing the practical assignments given.

10-76-6-AP-07 Begleitveranstaltung Sprachwissenschaft: Multimodal linguistics (in englischer Sprache)
Achtung! Seminar beginnt erst in der 2. Woche, also ab 11.04.17

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 10:15 - 11:45 MZH 1090 (2 SWS)

This colloquium is designed for Bachelor students planning to write their BA-thesis in the field of (multimodal) linguistics and its application to treatments of mixed media artefacts or performances: for example, film, comics, graphic novels, advertisements and so on. Particularly focused are areas where language (spoken or written) works together with visual representations of any kind. We will discuss theoretical and methodological approaches for characterising combinations of language and visual information, develop outlines and structures of the thesis, and consider how to construct strong thesis statements in order to focus your search for information, to tackle your subject and to construct your argument. Students will be expected to present and discuss their project in various stages of progression both in class as well as in individual monitoring sessions as well as to give input to others. Standard styles of presenting work within linguistics will be discussed as well as ways of addressing and analysing data and showing that analyses are adequate.

BA; MEd; TnL

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 14:00 - 15:30 SFG 2060 (2 SWS)

Adaptaciones cinematográficas: clásicos españoles de la posguerra
(La familia de) Pascual Duarte (Camilo José Cela/Ricardo Franco), La colmena (Camilo José Cela/Mario Camus) + Los santos inocentes (Miguel Delibes/Mario Camus)

En el seminario analizaremos y compararemos tres novelas españolas famosas de la posguerra y sus adaptaciones cinematográficas: La familia de Pascual Duarte (1942) de Camilo José Cela presenta un juego sutil con los paratextos y la autobiografía fingida de un asesino múltiple que éste redacta desde su celda de muerte. En La colmena (1951), del mismo autor, el cuál recibió en 1989 el premio Nobel de Literatura, en cambio, se suman episodios al modo de vidas cruzadas; la acción se sitúa en los años cuarenta en Madrid. La trama de Los santos inocentes (1981) de Miguel Delibes se ubica en los años sesenta y trata de la explotación de peones. El modelo genérico subyacente de la novela social se deconstruye a nivel del contenido por la venganza de un retrasado mental y a nivel discursivo a través de técnicas de subjetivación y por la oralidad fingida.
El módulo requiere una constante participación activa, una ponencia oral y un trabajo escrito. Para obtener los créditos, los estudiantes del BA + MEd + Vertiefungsmodul TnL tienen que presentar una ponencia en clase y elaborarla después por escrito en español: 25.000 caracteres, 6 CP. La fecha límite de entrega del trabajo escrito es el 31.08.2017.
El programa detallado se colocará previamente en Stud IP y se presentará, discutirá y modificará en la primera sesión; inscríbanse por favor previamente en Stud IP.
Para poder asistir al seminario hay que aprobar en la primera sesión una prueba de acceso sobre la novela La colmena de Cela.

Lectura preparatoria:
Cela, Camilo José: La colmena, ed. de Jorge Urrutia, Madrid: Cátedra (LH 300)
Cela, Camilo José: La familia de Pascual Duarte
Delibes, Miguel: Los santos inocentes
Recomiendo comprarse estas novelas.
A lo largo del curso deben juntarse para mirar las tres adaptaciones; en la Mediathek encontrarán los DVDs.
