B.A. E-SC "Key Topics in Cultural History"


wöchentlich Mo 16:15 - 17:45 GW2 B2880

This course welcomes students who wish to complete the following modules:
MA TnL Vertiefungsmodul 10-M83-3 and Profilmodul III: Film 10-M83-2
MA E-SC Orientierungsmodul LIT (non-graded PASS/FAIL – Studienleistung or grade – Prüfungsleistung)
BA E-SC “Key Topics in Cultural History”- D1b / D1c und WD1b / WD1c

Shakespeare’s plays are as enticing to filmmakers and visual artists as they were in 1899 when the first Shakespeare film was screened. Since then the number of filmic contributions has increased steadily. Divided into three projects depending on the choice of play (Hamlet, Macbeth and Othello) and drawing equally on traditional as well as contemporary ideas, that have emerged in the fields of cultural studies, transnational film, world cinema as well as filmic storytelling, we will explore how three plays by William Shakespeare are re-imagined in different linguistic and cultural contexts in selected late 20th Century and post-2000 productions. Focusing on Vishal Bhardwaj’s Shakespeare trilogy, course participants will be encouraged to investigate these films’ engagement with sexuality and gender, race and ethnicity and questions of power. 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.
Additional secondary sources can be accessed in the "Semesterapparat", a reference only section on the third floor of the library building. A number of DVDs will be available in the “Semesterapparat” in the “Mediathek”, located on the fourth floor of the library building:

wöchentlich Do 10:15 - 11:45 GW2 B3010 (Kleiner Studierraum)

This course will critically approach popular culture. We will engage in debates on popular culture, discuss various ways and methods of analyzing it and engage in exemplary investigations of specific examples. Employing a cultural historical perspective we will focus on categories of difference such as race, class, gender, sexuality. Students will improve their critical reading skills that can be applied to academic as well as to popular texts. Moreover, we will develop ideas how to productively use popular culture in schools.
Essential readings will be available for download on Stud-IP. You should also consult the 'Semesterapparat' (SuUB) for further readings.

10-M80-1-OrMo-01Maths on Stage and Screen (in englischer Sprache)


wöchentlich Fr 14:15 - 15:45 SFG 1030

In the course of this seminar, we shall discuss two maths plays and two maths films in terms of their contributions to what is today known as scientific literacy. While Tom Stoppard's outstanding play Arcadia (1993) attempts to maintain a dramatic focus on its thirteen-year-old heroine and maths prodigy, Thomasina, the other play under scrutiny, David Auburn's Proof (2000), presents Catherine, a largely self-taught mathematician, against the backdrop of human attractions, relationships, and conflicts.
In addition to an in-depth analysis of the two plays, we shall discuss the generic make-up of a so-called maths play and compare it to two films. One will be John Madden's adaptation of Proof (2005), starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins, and Jake Gyllenhaal. The other example is Matthew Brown's biopic The Man Who Knew Infinity (2015) highlighting the special professional relationship between the Indian mathematician, Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel), and a prominent Cambridge professor, G. H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons).

• 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. The number of participants is limited to 15 students.

wöchentlich Di 16:15 - 17:45 GW2 B2900 GW2 B3009 (Großer Studierraum)

Di 05.02.19 16:00 - 18:00 GW2 B3009 (Großer Studierraum)

This lecture will introduce students to the field of transcultural and postcolonial studies and will lay the basis for classes with topics relating to transcultural and postcolonial phenomena, literatures, films, and media. Through a rather dense reading program and some documentary films and webcasts we will learn about colonial histories, neocolonial relations in the globalized world, and key concepts in Postcolonial Studies, such as alterity, hybridity, transculturality, manicheanism, dichotomy, colonial discourse, colonized mind, creolization, hegemony, exoticism, orientalism, essentialism, and syncretism. We will read the writings of the foremost thinkers of postcolonial and transcultural theories, including Frantz Fanon, Edouard Glissant, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Stuart Hall, Homi Bhabha, Walter Mignolo, Edward Said, Wolfgang Welsh, Bill Ashcroft, Gareth Griffiths, and Helen Tiffin.
The lecture will be held in English. All texts will be provided electronically or through Stud IP. Requirements are regular attendance, participation in discussions, and in-depth knowledge of reading materials. Please note that prior enrollment via Stud.IP is mandatory.

10-M80-1-OrMo-03Comparing second-language and learner varieties of English (in englischer Sprache)
Bridging a paradigm gap? / Modultyp A, B/C u. D im Studiengang Language Sciences, M.A.


wöchentlich Di 10:15 - 11:45 GW2 A3390 (CIP-Labor FB 10)

Current research in the field of English corpus linguistics challenges the traditional division between foreign language / learner varieties of English (English as a Foreign Language, EFL) and institutionalized second-language varieties of English (English as a Second Language, ESL), the so-called “paradigm-gap”. Despite the manifold differences between EFL and ESL, and although the two types of varieties have traditionally been examined in different research paradigms (EFL in Second Language Acquisition research, ESL in research on World Englishes), there are a number of similarities that warrant a comparative perspective. Both are ‘non-native’ varieties, are acquired in institutionalised settings as foreign or second languages in language contact situations, and, most importantly for the present context, have been assumed to be subject to similar cognitive processes of language acquisition and production. In this seminar we will review the current research literature in the field and then design corpus-based empirical research projects in which students will compare selected EFL and ESL varietes to examine similarities and difference between the two types of varieties.

10-M80-1-OrMo-04Introduction to Researching Multimodality: theories and methods (in englischer Sprache)
Modultyp B/C im Studiengang Language Sciences, M.A.


wöchentlich Di 14:15 - 15:45 GW2 B2900 NW2 B3118

In this 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.

This lecture series provides an overview of current research trends, theories and methods in the three profile areas of the MA programme (British, North American and Postcolonial Literatures; Linguistics: Varieties, Medialities, Applications; British, North American and Postcolonial Cultural History) by addressing the three interrelated areas of language, text, and media. In the lectures we will also illustrate individual objects of analysis and highlight research topics and methods that feature prominently in the work currently being pursued by the faculty members participating in the programme. Additionally, we will discuss the film The Tempest (2010, dir. Julie Taymor) in case studies from the perspectives of cultural history, linguistics, and literary studies, including readings of Shakespeare’s play.
Please read William Shakespeare’s The Tempest (ca. 150 pages in Arden Shakespeare Critical Edition, edited by Virginia M. Vaughan and Alden T. Vaughan), available at the book store on campus (Universitätsbuchhandlung, ca 11 €). Other required texts will be provided electronically or in a reader. Requirements are regular attendance, in-depth knowledge of reading material, and active engagement during discussion periods. Please note that prior enrolment via Stud.IP is mandatory.

A more in-depth introduction to further fields of specialisation is given in supporting overview seminars, which present a range of hands-on as well as theoretical and methodological case studies and foundational literature for the profile areas. Two overview seminars have to be chosen in addition to the lecture series in order to complete the Orientation Module.

Assessment and evaluation take on an important role in foreign language learning and teaching, since they allow insights into learner development and achievement. It is not only the learners who get feedback and thus can plan their next steps. The teachers, as well, benefit from assessment and evaluation by gaining insights into the effectiveness of their teaching.
In the seminar, we will discuss basic concepts and notions in the field of language assessment and reflect on the complex interactions between learning, teaching and assessment. Against the backdrop of this theoretical basis, we will critically analyse assessment instruments applied in foreign language classrooms and finally develop instruments for diagnostic and assessment practice ourselves.

For Erasmus students: 1 CP General Studies Module (Participation only), 3 CP (Participation and written paper)

Im 2-tägigen Masterworkshop werden teilnehmende Studierende die Produktionsprozesse von Spielfilmen von der Idee, der Entwicklung und Postproduktion eines Films kennenlernen. Sie bekommen so Einblick in einen Aspekt des Filmemachens, der weitestgehend für FilmwissenschaftlerInnen und Publikum verborgen bleibt. Die breite kulturelle und international Verortung des Produzenten Sven Schnell (mit lateinamerikanischem kulturellem Hintergrund – Peru) eröffnet eine transkulturelle und transnationale Perspektive auf den praktiven Produktionsprozess eines Filmes. Der Workshop wird in einem kombinierten Lehr- und Praxismodus durchgeführt.
Der Workshop wird abhängig von den TeilnehmerInnen auf Deutsch oder Englisch durchgeführt.

In the 2-day master workshop participating students will get to know the production processes of dramatic films, starting from the idea up to development, production and post production of a film. They will thus gain an insight into an aspect of filmmaking that remains mostly hidden from film scholars and audience. The broad cultural and international background of the producer Sven Schnell (with Latin-American cultural background - Peru) opens a transcultural and transnational perspective towards the practical production process of a film. The workshop will be held in a combined teaching and practical modus. The workshop will be conducted in either English or German, depending on the participants.

In this workshop we will explore and experiment with contemporary methods of improvisational theater, which is the art of making up theatrical moments on the spot, without a script. It is one of the liveliest and most current forms of theater of today and ingrained in US popular culture. This workshop will introduce the basic principles of improvisational theater, reflect on its impact on popular culture and explore its practical approaches to comedic as well as dramatic narrative structures.
