10-76-1-Basismodul B-01Introduction to English Linguistics 1 (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar
ECTS: 3

Termine:
wöchentlich Do 10:15 - 11:45 MZH 1460 (2 SWS)

This class will be taught in class on campus as long as it is permitted.
Linguistics is the scientific study of language and communication. It deals with all aspects of how people use language and what they must know in order to do so. The purpose of this class is to give a systematic introduction to the variety of ways in which language can be examined scientifically. Students will be introduced to and equipped with the fundamental concepts, the adequate terminology and methodology for linguistic analysis. The class will thus provide an overview of the core areas of linguistics – phonetics and phonology (the study of speech sounds), morphology (the structure of words), syntax (the structure of sentences), semantics (the study of meaning) and pragmatics (the study of meaning and language use in context). Taking a contrastive German-English perspective whenever possible, this course will also cater to the needs and interests of students who want to become teachers of English.


RECOMMENDED LITERATURE (please buy this book):
Kortmann, Bernd (2005), English Linguistics: Essentials. Berlin: Cornelsen.

ASSESSMENT

• careful reading and preparation of assigned readings and exercises for each session

William Shakespeare’s London, and in this seminar, London in the Elizabethan Age as well as at his time in the city (c.1560 – 1616), was a rapidly growing and bustling metropolis. In the duration of this course, we will travel back in time seeking to explore the history and social geography of this largest city in England. Based on a research-based learning methodology, we will attempt to map out London’s key locations as the centre of government, the law and the church as well as being the focus of politics and culture during a time of intense political and religious upheaval. In addition, this course focuses on the following topics: Stage history, playhouses; the fundamental features of dramatic composition to issues such as political structures in Renaissance England, gender roles and relations, love and sexuality, constructions of nationhood, global expansion and their representation in Shakespeare’s plays.

Since some of the participants are required to submit a research-based term paper, we will use parts of our seminar discussions to the development of topics, the formulation of a thesis statement, as well as considerations about the methodological approaches of writing such a paper. A reader with selected secondary text materials will be made available for download on Stud. IP. You will need access to Stud.IP and a laptop or tablet with sound and audio capabilities.
You may wish to check the sections "Information" and "Schedule" further details such as requirements, weekly schedule, select bibliography and modes of assessment.

10-76-3-D1-02Key Topics in Literature: Narratives of Ocean Cultures (in englischer Sprache)
This course is already filled to capacity.

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 12:15 - 13:45 SFG 1020 (2 SWS)

This seminar will introduce you to the history of the ocean and its significance in English-speaking cultures as mediated by novels and short stories. The aim is to explore the different modes of narrating the ocean, and the ways in which each mode tells us about the role of the ocean in English-speaking cultures.

Drawing from postcolonial theory and the emerging field of the blue humanities, we view the ocean as both ‘nature’ and ‘culture’: a ‘natural space’ that is both in danger and a key player in climate change as well as a ‘cultural space’, a way of re-thinking issues of identity, race, migration, refuge and asylum, slavery, hegemony, and gender. We seek to understand how different meanings of the ocean are generated, disseminated, and contested by systems of power and control. The ocean is also considered as a connecting space between English-speaking cultures.

We will read the novel Sea of Poppies (2008) by the well-known Indian author Amitav Ghosh as well as three short stories from different English-speaking cultures, including one written by the Nobel Prize Winner for Literature 2021, Abdulrazzaq Gurnah. Two weeks are planned to be allotted for online talks with Ghosh and Gurnah respectively. Also, we plan to have a first-hand experience of a trip to Bremerhaven for a visit to the German Emigration Center to get an idea of the forces behind the historical migration from Germany to the US.

Requirements:
• active participation in weekly meetings,
• in-depth knowledge of the reading material,
• graded or ungraded assignment in accordance with the respective module requirements.

10-76-3-D1/WD1-01Key Topics in Literature: Women's Fiction in North America (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar
ECTS: 3

Termine:
wöchentlich Fr 10:15 - 11:45 GW1 B0100 (2 SWS)

In 'A Room of One’s Own' (1929), the English modernist writer Virginia Woolf argued that “Women and fiction remain, […], unsolved problems.” This class introduces students to the study of the “unresolved problems” of women’s fiction in North America in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. We will analyze a selection of novels and short stories that address and have emerged from various North American women’s experiences. We will learn about the diverse histories and literary forms of expression of women and their (literary) liberation struggles. Students will study the tools, practices, and histories of women’s and gender studies as well as feminist literary criticism and their relations to various waves and trajectories of feminisms in North America (e.g. Black feminism, “Third World,” women of color feminism, or eco- and hydrofeminism). With the help of weekly discussions of primary and secondary texts, we will examine the forms and styles of women’s fiction and ponder central issues raised, such as the construction of sex and gender, the role of sexuality and reproduction, the domestic sphere and the environment, gender-based violence, female friendship and solidarity, as well as their intersections with race, class, age, and ability, among others. In tackling these ‘unresolved problems’ of women and fiction in North America, we will hone our skills in literary and cultural studies, esp. academic writing, discussion, and presentation as well as practice critical thinking.
The majority of material and information will be made available on Stud.IP. Prior enrolment via Stud.IP is mandatory and admission is limited to a maximum of thirty students. The class is open to B.A. ESC students studying the WD1-a, WD1-b, D1-a, and the D1-b modules as well as international exchange students. Please check Stud.IP regularly for updates, including any preparatory primary or secondary readings.

Requirements

• in-depth knowledge of the reading material,
• graded or ungraded assignment in accordance with the respective module requirements.

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 16:15 - 17:45 GW2 A4330 SuUB 4320 (Studio II Medienraum ) (2 SWS)

Sprachmittlung gilt im Fremdsprachenunterricht als eine komplexe Kompetenz, deren Förderung verschiedene Teilbereiche umfasst. In diesem Seminar soll dieser Komplexität nachgegangen und die gegenwärtigen Theorien und Modelle unter Einbezug der eigenen Sprachmittlungsexpertise rezipiert und (semi-)offizielle Aufgaben kritisch analysiert werden. In einer späteren Phase des Seminars werden Konstruktionsparameter für Lernaufgaben kennengelernt und analysiert werden. Ziel dieser Veranstaltungen ist es darüber hinaus, auch Einblick in Test-/Klausuraufgaben und Auswertungsmodelle kennenzulernen.

10-E76-3-LING-01Key Topics in Linguistics for Teachers of English: Varieties of English in the foreign language classroom (in englischer Sprache)

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 12:15 - 13:45 SFG 2070 (2 SWS)

This seminar is offered in combination with a seminar in module 10-E76-1-FD3-02 Handlungskompetenzen (Fridays 14:15 - 15:45). The two seminars build upon each other and should thus be taken together. Please register for both courses.

The massive spread and diversification of the English language, its dominance as a second/foreign language and its use as a global lingua franca has brought about a change in the foundations of how English should be taught and learned. However, in English Language Teaching (ELT) in Germany there is still an exclusively exonormative orientation towards "Standard English", i.e. British and/or American English. But setting a monolingual, inner-circle native-speaker benchmark for todays' learners, including the corresponding cultural norms, does not correspond to the linguistic reality and is therefore no longer considered appropriate in many contexts.
This seminar aims at helping teacher students develop an awareness of the sociolinguistic and pedagogical implications of the global spread of English, also beyond school curricula. In this linguistics seminar, we will approach World Englishes from a pedagogical point of view and discuss the sociolinguistic and pedagogical implications of the global spread of English.

10-E76-3-SP3-02Language-Literature-Screen (in englischer Sprache)

Übung
ECTS: 3

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

As the title of this course suggests, we will look at three rather complex entities of the English language classroom. Each one brings forth its own set of rules and requirements which will be discussed during the semester. We will look at literature, its representations on screen(s) and how each medium helps students gain access to the language.

This course is part of the Practical Language Module, and therefore the focus is on the language functions and the active use of the language rather than didactic concepts.

10-E76-3-SP3-03The Language of Young Adult Fiction (in englischer Sprache)

Übung
ECTS: 3

Termine:
wöchentlich Do 14:15 - 15:45 GW2 A4020 (2 SWS)

Please note that this class is part of the Master of Education and only MA students are eligible to take part.

The aim of this course is to show that YA fiction is not “dumbed down” or a subcategory of literature as some people may suggest. Quite the contrary is the case, a this section of literature provides insights into human nature and helps young adults understand the complexities of this world. We will analyse the language of selected pieces of YA fiction in this class and find ways to incorporate the texts into the language classroom.

This course is part of the Practical Language Module, and therefore the focus is on the language functions and the active use of the language rather than didactic concepts.
