Seminar (Teaching)

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Fri. 10:15 - 11:45 GW2 A3390 (CIP-Labor FB 10)

In the last decades, the research paradigm of World Englishes has experienced a proliferation of detailed studies of different aspects of Englishes across the world. These descriptions have largely focused on phonological, lexical, morphosyntactic, and, more recently, also pragmatic and cultural-cognitive aspects of World Englishes. In this seminar we will review recent trends and current research topics and methods in the field (e.g. model formation, lexico-grammatical variation and innovation, pragmatics, and metaphor and idioms). Students will then develop and work on corpus-based empirical research projects in which they examine selected aspects of World Englishes.

synchronous and asynchronous digital sessions and face-to-face as allowed and wished. Modultyp A-D im Studiengang Language Sciences, M.A.

Seminar (Teaching)

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Fri. 16:00 - 18:00 GW2 B3010 (Kleiner Studierraum)

In the course a detailed overview of the growing field of multimodality will be given, examining how different expressive resources (text, pictures, diagrams, layout, movement, sound, ...) combine productively for effective communication, and how problems and failures of communication can be analysed. The course will be example driven, looking at particular kinds of multimodal communication in order to introduce some of the basic theoretical and practical methods developed for state of the art multimodality research. The course is a prerequisite for taking up further more advanced studies of mixed mode communication forms later in the MA programme. Participants will engage with analytic methods from film theory, design theory, comics and sequential art, psychological approaches, rhetoric, advertising and more, all critically reassessed and extended through modern multimodality theory and method. A broad interdisciplinary textbook introducing the field is Bateman/Wildfeuer/Hiippala (2017, de Gruyter) "Multimodality: foundations, research and analysis. a problem-oriented introduction", available from the university library. It will be possible to study the course online; face-to-face meetings may be organised as the situation allows.

10-M80-3-SpecMo-02Multimodal analysis of audiovisual media: film, TV, videos, ... (in English)
synchronous and asynchronous digital sessions and face-to-face as allowed and wished. Modultyp A-D im Studiengang Language Sciences, M.A.

Seminar (Teaching)

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Tue. 14:15 - 15:45

In this course participants will learn how to analyse audiovisual media, i.e., any kind of media where communication combines moving images, sound, language, music and so on. We will work through the standard challenges that audiovisual media raise and approaches taken in, for example, film studies and media communication. We will then show how explicitly multimodal models of analysis can refine results in order to see how the media function communicatively. Assessment for the course will primarily be based on practical analyses addressing particular research questions to be worked out during the course by each participant. Group work will also be possible. Analyses can serve many purposes, from aesthetic to critical sociocultural discourse analysis.

Information will be available online and the entire course may be studied online. Face-to-face meetings will be held to the extent that circumstances allow and are wanted by participants.
