Kommentar:

Since the end of World War II, there has been a general consensus regarding the importance of development on a global scale, since dominant theories of development have determined the conception and implementation of policies and strategies allegedly designed for the not-developed countries to "catch up". This seminar offers an overview of the most relevant theories and the impact that development has had on the Global South. Examination method: Portfolio (English or German) + active participation during the seminar.

Kommentar:

Traditionally, populism was seen as a characteristic of the Global South politics. Yet, the spread of populism worldwide has become an issue of increasing concern both for academia and the general citizenship. From the U.S. to Venezuela to Germany, right and left wing parties are increasingly adopting populism as a rhetorical strategy and a political logic. In the course of this seminar, we will explore the concept of populism using current and past examples from around world. Examination method: One presentation + One Academic Paper/ Hausarbeit (English or German) and active participation during the seminar.

Kommentar:

This course aims to discuss key ideas about how the contemporary idea of “Feminism” is present in the writings of racialized women. Through the historiography on the struggles of enslaved women, the students will engage in a conversation about Black Feminist writings and claims from the perspectives from Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, US, UK and Asia. The topics will be around (1) concepts coined by Black feminists; (2) Methodology, specially involving power relations and affect; (3) ethical issues around the voice and agency of women of colour; and (4)activism involving both: the authors’ biographies and the way political polices’ agenda were defined through Black Feminist claims. Each session of this course will be designed with three moments: presentation of one or a group of authors, group work, and collective reflection upon the discussed topic. The short sessions will be organised to discuss general concepts and methodology, the long sessions will be mediated by the teacher, presented in a seminar format by the students with depth analysis and group discussions. All sessions will involve group exercises using alternative resources such as videos, poem, short stories or music.

Kommentar:

The United States of America has long served as a prime example of what democracy, freedom, and justice should look like. The political culture of this country, framed in the knowledge of laws, rights, and obligations (among others), is so widely known and so deeply inserted into that society, that even we, as foreigners do have a clear understanding of it, how it has been constructed and how it should look like. The role of the media has had in this construction is crucial, as an image of America, land of the brave, is presented in television shows, movies, and social media. Stars and stripes, apple pie, and Hollywood mark our perception of this country. Yet a lot has changed in the last years, the political discussion has shifted and new forms of communication are changing the political landscape of this country. Now, the daily political discussion resembles more and more the coverage of TMZ and the dynamics of reality television. Showing that the divide between pop culture for the masses and political culture for the people is disappearing as the differentiation between serious political content and pop culture entertainment dissolves. Examination method: Portfolio (English or German) + active participation during the seminar

Kommentar:

The global interdependency we live in has consequences on all levels of human endeavour, including the production of knowledge. Hence, the universalization of “dominant” Western worldviews is an expected outcome of the process of globalization. Putting emphasis on post-colonialist theories, this seminar will examine the effects of globalization on the production and management of knowledge. Examination method: One presentation + One Academic Paper/ Hausarbeit (English or German) and active participation during the seminar.

[H Si] "Pre-Modern Ukraine: Borderland or Global Meeting Point?"
Unterrichtssprache Englisch
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 25.10.2018
wöchentlich Do. 08:00 - 10:00 Uhr,  Phil. I, D 106

Kommentar:

This course considers Ukraine as a place of intercultural communication, transfer of goods, people, practices and ideas. Ukraine had witnessed phenomena unknown in West Europe – like white slavery or new state founded by the rebellious outlaws. We will try to understand why Tatars sold their children into slavery. We will explore how the enslaved Ukrainian girl Roxolana became the powerful wife of the Ottoman sultan Suleiman I Magnificent. We will study why Polish and Ukrainian noblemen orientalized themselves through claiming their ancestry from the ancient Sarmatian nomads and dressing themselves in the Ottoman attire. We will examine how the Cossacks shifted from the Black Sea piracy to the foundation of their own statehood – the Hetmanate. Particular attention will be given to the long-distance trade and consumption, fashion and politics, hybrid identities, brigandage and piracy, Diasporas and merchant networks, slave trafficking and escape. Ukraine’s history will be examined through the concepts of the “borderland”/”frontier”, “contact zone” and “hybridity”.


[Ü] Contemporary Ukraine (1991-2018): Politics, Economics, Society"
Unterrichtssprache ist Englisch
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 25.10.2018
wöchentlich Do. 16:00 - 18:00 Uhr,  Phil. I, D 209

Kommentar:

Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the subsequent conflict in eastern Ukraine presented the EU with a major foreign policy challenge. This course examines the causes and consequences of the recent conflict in Ukraine through a historical lens. The course consists of three main blocks. In the first block we will focus on the collapse of the Soviet Union and transition to the oligarchic economy and “competitive authoritarianism” (1985-2004). The second block of the course will focus on the semi-consolidated “oligarchic democracy” and Russia’s growing interference into Ukrainian affairs (2004-2013). The third block of the course will explore Ukraine’s political crisis of 2013-2014 and ongoing Russian-Ukrainian military conflict. By exploring phenomena such as privatization, patronal politics, corruption, mafia, clans, oligarchs, political machinery, electoral chicanery, civil society, the Soviet historical legacy, uses of history in politics, regionalism, hybrid identities, mass media and propaganda, proxy war, de facto states, it provides a larger framework for understanding what is happening today.


[Ü] History of Eastern European political concepts

Sa. 10.11.2018,09.00 - 13.00 Uhr   Phil. I, G 025

Kommentar:

The course is dedicated to the analysis of the main variants of History of concepts (Conceptual history, Begriffsgeschichte) with a special attention to the Eastern European political concepts. History of concepts is a useful and influential strategy of study and research in the field of intellectual history and history of philosophy. Study of the course should help the students to explicate social and historical dimensions of the main concepts of political philosophy, showing pragmatic aspects of their usage and close interrelation with other forms of knowledge, politics, everyday life, and cultural traditions. The course covers the main methodological issues of the research in intellectual history and history of concepts especially. The main variants of the history of concepts (the German and English ones) are represented with an attention to the basic concepts of Western political tradition. At the same time the possibilities of the methodology for the regionally oriented research and area studies are discovered (the examples of the post-Soviet countries). A special attention is given to the problems of transfer of concepts (as a form of wider process of intellectual and cultural transfer) and (im)possibility of translation of concepts of political philosophy. The course includes lectures on the main aspects of contemporary history of political and social concepts. The Power-point presentation will be used during the lectures. The in-class discussions presuppose reading of texts that will be provided by the lecturer in digital form (as well as general and additional literature for the course).

Kommentar:

Palaeography is the study of old handwriting. In this course we will study German, English and French handwriting of the sixteenth- and seventeenth century. At first glance, documents written at this time may look wholly illegible to the modern reader. Many of the letters differ considerably from the ones used today, punctuation is often absent, and texts contain abbreviations we no longer use. This course will provide you with the basic knowledge to understand what the texts say, to interpret their sentence structure, and to transcribe the abbreviations. Furthermore, studying these texts will add to developing an understanding of how historical research is conducted and teach you about the pitfalls in using these sources. Palaeography is an essential skill for delving into and understanding Early Modern History. As with any new skill, the only real way to become proficient in reading old handwriting is to practise, practise and practise. The examination consists of a source analysis and transcription of 10.000 to 12.000 characters.


[Ü] Ottoman Rumelia from Postcolonial Perspective
Die Unterrichtssprache ist Englisch
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 18.10.2018
wöchentlich Do. 14:00 - 16:00 Uhr,  Phil. I, G 025

Kommentar:

The course deals with the analysis of the Ottoman Empire, especially its European part known as Rumelia. In the course will be analyzed its transformation during the long XIX century through the lens of Postcolonial theory by trying to deconstruct narratives of "superiority/civilization" and "backward/barbarian". In this context, we will read basic texts on postcolonial theory (Said, Spivak, Todorova etc.) and try to apply them on examples related to Rumelia (and other parts of South-Eastern Europe) and open up comparative perspectives (Russian Empire, British Empire etc.)
