Please register on Stud.IP:
You select a course of your choice and apply for participation. Your lecturer will either accept or reject your application, depending on the number of students permitted to take one class. The registration process is complete, when you receive a confirmation email. Courses offered in the winter term are available in our online course programme from July 30th onwards. Courses offered in the summer term are available from December 30th.

Comment:
This registration process supports students and faculty members alike. For health and safety reasons the number of students who may register for one course is in some cases limited due to room size. Early registration therefore allows students to make alternative arrangements, i.e. to select another course of their choice before the start of the lecture period.
Registration for Academic Exchange students (Erasmus, Free Mover, international students):
We would like to advice academic exchange students to register for courses via Email. Please identify the relevant faculty member or lecturer and send your email registration request directly to the faculty member offering the course you wish to join.

Seminar

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

This course examines the sociohistorical and political legacy of sugar. Interdisciplinary course readings introduce the history of sugar production and consumption with its thorough dependency on slavery and slave labor. We will also look into more recent developments and investigate how contemporary artists like Kara Walker in her work "A Subtlety. Or the Marvelous Sugar Baby" deals with sugar as a cultural, historical and social artifact.

Language in context has traditionally been studied within the context of one culture such as British or US-American English. Speech Act Theory, Politeness Theory, Conversation Analysis principles meanwhile have been applied to global speech communities and a previously ethnocentric perspective has made way for research that demonstrates different communicative strategies in different cultures. On this background, we will move on to multimodal interaction and take non-verbal discourse strategies into account. Hence, we expand the traditional concepts and analyze how they are realized multimodally. First, students will learn the major analytical frameworks that are applied in pragmatics. Second, we will look at the state of art in multimodal research in intercultural communication.
The texts will be uploaded.

Course Requirements:
A presentation on the second week-end and two 500 word response papers to selected from the class will be required.

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Mi 12:15 - 13:45 SH D1020 SuUB 4330 (Studio I Medienraum ) (2 SWS)

Why is English English, and what makes German German? How are, for example, case and gender realized in these languages? What is special about their morphology? How is the word order different? In this class, we will investigate the commonalities and differences in the English and German language system and their use. We will start with a look at the theoretical description of the two language systems, at the notion of ‘equivalence’ in translations, and at translation universals. In the second half of the seminar, you will investigate the Bremen Translation Corpus (BTC) with the help of computer-assisted manual annotations. For this, you will learn how to use the UAM corpus tool. Finally, you will present the results of your study as a poster or term paper.

10-E76-4-MEd-1 Case Studies

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Mi 14:15 - 15:45 GW1 A0160 (2 SWS)

Dieses Seminar ist verpflichtend für alle Studierenden, die ihre Masterarbeit (M. Ed.) im Fach Englisch abfassen. Beachten Sie bitte, dass dieser verpflichtende zweite Teil des Seminars nur im SoSe 2015 angeboten wird (als Forsetzung des ersten Teils aus dem vorangehenden WS).
Dieses Seminar befasst sich mit der Analyse und Evaluation aktueller Forschungsliteratur im Bereich der Fremdsprachenforschung; in diesem akademischen Jahr liegt dabei ein Schwerpunkt auf der Methodologie des Design-Based Research. Das Seminar ist als Grundlage zur Begleitung der eigenen empirischen Studie im Rahmen der Masterarbeit konzipiert. Durch eine intensive Betrachtung der gängigen Forschungsmethoden und ihrer Umsetzung in bereits veröffentlichten Studien werden eine Reflexion über Sprachlernprozesse sowie die Förderung logischen und kritischen Denkens angeregt und das Eintauchen in die Hintergründe der Fremdsprachenforschung ermöglicht. Im Seminar sollen Studierende lernen, ihre Erfahrungen mit der Untersuchung neuerer Forschungsarbeiten im Sinne einer Entwicklung zum reflective practitioner als Basis für ihre eigene Lehrkompetenz im Fach Englisch zu begreifen. Deswegen beschäftigen wir uns im Seminar vorrangig mit der Interpretation von Erkenntnissen aus der Fremdsprachenforschung und ihrer Relevanz für die eigene Forschung im Rahmen der Masterarbeit sowie die (spätere) eigene Unterrichtspraxis.

10-76-4-SP2-01 Culture and Communication a (in englischer Sprache)
"'No (wo)man is an island'?"

Übung
ECTS: 3

Termine:
wöchentlich Mi 14:15 - 15:45 GW1-HS H1000 GW2 B1400 NUR Mi. - So. (2 SWS)

The name for this new class is adapted from John Donne, a poet and theologian, a contemporary of William Shakespeare: “No man is an Island, entire of it self.” Donne comments how one person’s actions and fate can affect each of us, as fellow-members of “Mankind” – a key idea when we consider how the world, political blocs, and countries are – or should be – governed, and our role in this as citizens and voters: a central issue as Germany and France prepare to elect their national governments, the UK Parliament readies itself to vote on the whole Brexit process, the intentions of the recently elected US President for his country and the globe at large become clearer, and the media proclaim the arrival of a ‘post-truth’ world.
Recent behaviour by electorates in the western world has underlined how many people are increasingly questioning the extent to which the political system of their country is in fact democratic and representative. Does it guarantee democratic elections (and what does this actually mean)? Does it genuinely reflect the will of ‘the people’ (and which ‘people’ – are majorities and minorities equally fairly represented)? In those cases where the country belongs to a political bloc, are political decisions affecting the bloc taken in a representative and truly effective manner? Is it “government of the people, by the people, and for the people” (Abraham Lincoln, 1863)? Or does ‘The Establishment’ run everything in an inscrutable, unaccountable manner, with meaningless elections held every now and then to appease the voters? CAN we – the voters, individually and collectively – actually affect anything and bring about meaningful change (e.g. through referendums)? In a nutshell, are we forced to choose between true democracy and effective, efficient government?
Using mini-presentations, a collection of key readings, and our own critical faculties, we will examine different forms of government and governance during the first half of the semester to assess in each case what are the good aspects, at least in theory; what is potentially dangerous or dysfunctional about each form; and what problems could arise (perhaps have arisen) in reality. This will enable us to conclude whether the form of government can actually function, under what conditions and with what consequences for a country and its people. (For example, what is the difference between ‘representative democracy’ and ‘direct democracy’, and can a system that makes considerable use of referendums truly function?) Finally, we will attempt to answer the question why a given system appears to function in one country and not in another.
In the second part of the semester, everyone will give a further mini-presentation, this time on a topic of your own choosing; I will provide you with some suggestions emerging from the ideas discussed in the first half, but personal preferences and wishes can also be discussed and agreed upon! This will in effect be a ‘dress rehearsal’ for your SP2 module exam presentation, i.e. you can ‘road-test’ what you are planning to do and receive feedback from the class and me, as you work up the actual exam presentation. And a reflective essay will draw together everything you have learnt about good, effective academic writing, as well as pointing to what areas you should work on in your semester abroad before writing your BA dissertation in your final BA semester.
You will thus be furthering your English-language speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, building on lessons learnt in the previous three semesters to help you help yourself in the Aufbaumodul exam, during your study semester abroad, and when working on your BA dissertation (no matter in what language!). In particular, we will look closely at what elements make for a GOOD, PROFESSIONAL presentation. Thus, the communicative and also soft skills you acquire will be invaluable in ‘life after completing BA studies’ as well: much of the work we will be doing on recipient-orientated structure and communication strategies will be equally valid in any communication situation, no matter in what language or country: a well-structured essay, presentation or simply ‘message’ is well-structured, no matter whether in English, Spanish, Swahili or Klingon!!!
Please note that since this is an Übung (and you cannot “übe” if you are not present…!), you will be required to actively attend class regularly (80% of class meetings). Insufficient preparation with no convincing reason (teacher’s definition!) means you have not completed the preparation aspect of the module requirements, and so will result in your failing the class.
REGISTRATION: Initial provisional registration for this class via Stud.IP will close at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, 15th March, 2017 (Studienkommission E-SC ruling). If MORE than 23 people have signed up for it by the deadline, I will inform the ‘lucky’ 23 that are definitely IN the class who they are, and ask them to confirm they are definitely participating by a set deadline a few days later. Anyone else who has registered will be put on the waiting list. Any places that are still open will be filled at the Practical-Language ‘Börse’ at 3 p.m. on the afternoon of Friday, 31st March, when I assume I will have some information to give you about spaces in most – hopefully all – C&C classes; I will add the room for the ‘Börse’ here on Stud.IP when this has been arranged. NOTE: If you are a genuine ‘hardship case’ and can only attend THIS C&C class, send me an email or see me in an office hour WELL IN ADVANCE OF 15th March with clear evidence why you should be given preferential treatment regarding admission to this class, and why none of the other ULS2 classes are remotely possible for you. Warning: I have heard MANY stories down the years, and require very good proof!

10-M83-2-P2-2 Shakespeare's Canadian Sisters (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Fr 14:15 - 15:45 SFG 2080 (2 SWS)

It is indeed interesting to see that over the past three decades an ever increasing number of Canadian playwrights has opted for Shakespeare's work as a theatrical site for cultural and socio-political encounters. Two of the most famous dramatists in that field are Ann-Marie MacDonald and Djanet Sears.
The aim of this course is to compare Ann-Marie MacDonald's both witty and humorous play Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) and Djanet Sears' serious drama Harlem Duet as both are rewritings of Shakespearean source texts. While Goodnight Desdemona sees a young Canadian scholar suddenly confronted with modified versions of Desdemona and Juliet, Harlem Duet offers a new look at ethnic, political, and cultural issues by rewriting Shakespeare's domestic tragedy Othello in the form of a thematic, not chronological prequel. The play is situated in Harlem in the present day as well as the years 1928 and 1860.

requirements:
• regular attendance and active participation
• in-depth knowledge of the reading material
• oral presentation (handout) or
• research in progress and final paper

Please note that prior enrolment via Stud.IP is mandatory.
