Kommentar:

The last 30 years have seen an unprecedented rise of constitutionalism in the world. Part of this development has been the expansion of constitutional review, i.e. the power given to courts to strike down (parliamentary) laws if they violate the constitution. Though constitutional review often seems natural to us today and a necessity in any Rechtsstaat, it is in reality a rather new thing and not a self-evident power of courts at all. This course provides an overview of the rise of and development of constitutional courts and constitutional review in a range of different legal systems, starting with the United States where constitutional review is until today fairly contested and the Supreme Court is undergoing a major legitimacy crisis at the moment. We try to understand the development of US constitutionalism from a historical perspective, encountering landmark decisions like Dred Scott, Lochner, Brown v. Board of Education, Roe v. Wade and others. Secondly we move to Germany but with a focus not on doctrine (Dogmatik) but on the evolution of constitutional review here and the role of the German Constitutional Court over the last decades. Finally, we turn to South Africa as an example for a more recent constitution which has borrowed from the German and whose constitutionalism shares with the German the need for overcoming an evil past. South Africa is also one of the internationally most admired examples of constitutionalism to date, with an active constitutional court with a comparatively progressive jurisprudence.

The class pursues 3 objectives: 1. to give German students the opportunity to see German constitutionalism in comparison to other countries and offer them new perspectives on the world outside Germany, 2. to help practice your English by engaging in conversations in class and 3. to offer Erasmus and other visiting students an introduction to German constitutionalism from a broader comparative perspective.

[Si] Sustainable Development – Oxymoron or Joint Effort?
Digital seminar

https://www.jlu-digitalcampus.de/vip/law
Sustainable development has been shaping (inter-) national policy ever since the Brundtland report from 1987 defined it as ‘development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’. On the one hand, the concept has evolved into a political guideline represented by the United Nations’ launch of the Sustainable Development Goals, and on the other hand, into a buzzword used by different stakeholders both in the business and activist sector. This seminar aims at unpacking the manifold layers beyond sustainable development discussing both (post-) development discourses and key concepts surrounding sustainability. While giving a broad introduction into the field of sustainable development in the first part of the seminar, the second part delves into the complexity of so called ‘wicked problems’ concentrating i.a. on natural resource-based development models and the imperial mode of living. The seminar draws from examples from both Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Kommentar:

In this seminar, students will learn about the intersection between knowledge and
communication. The theories and concepts studied throughout the semester will allow students to understand the role of media and their appropriation in conflictive situations, such as the spread of false information and the rise of contemporary populist movements. Key readings of sociology of knowledge, interaction rituals, symbolic violence and opinion formation will compose the seminar's content. Practical activities based on specific case studies are also part of this course.

Kommentar:

In this seminar, students will learn about contemporary forms of discrimination and injustice in the current media and technological development. The first classes will review grounding concepts that permeate discussions proposed in the second part of the seminar. Therefore, the lecturer will first invite students to consider and critically reflect on unequal relations that are not specific to the current socio-technical historical period. After acquiring this common ground or revisiting concepts and theories, students will analyse phenomena like gender discrimination in games and algorithmic forms of racism in the second part of the seminar.


[Si] Empires and Livelihoods of Debt
The course is offered as distance learning, predominantly asynchronous with some synchronous meetings
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 20.10.2021
wöchentlich Mi. 16:00 - 18:00 Uhr,  k.A.

Zielgruppe:
GKM Ma, WPV, oSem

Kommentar:

Participation in the seminar can be in German or English. – The Covid 19 pandemic has once again exacerbated the phenomenon of a debt-based economy. Usually, sovereign debts are treated separately from private debts. This seminar, however, is analysing debt itself as a societal mediator between the development of large-scale permanent institutions on the one hand and local livelihoods on the other. It rests on the assumption that debts are replacing labour power as the core characteristic of capitalism, together with a "provincialising of Europe" (D. Chakrabarty) in the world economy.

Kommentar:

Post-conflict societies face several issues that emerge out of political transitions and traumas of violent historical periods. This seminar will examine how social actors, identity groups, and institutions come to terms with the past and deal with continuous conflicts and injustices. Students will develop a critical understanding of concepts, such as transitional justice, memory politics, silence and forgetting, and historical consciousness that support the analysis of different cultural and national cases of post-conflict societies.

Kommentar:

This course aims to introduce the students to the recent critical discussions in the field of sociology of migration, particularly regarding the epistemological and methodological perspectives employed in this field so far. Within this framework, the conceptual definitions of ‘migration’ and ‘the migrant’ will be revisited and the new critical perspectives mainly from the perspective of cultural studies regarding these conceptualizations will be studied. An understanding of migration processes beyond the conceptual limitations of borders, (non)movement, as well as nation state will be one of the main aims of the reflexive discussions that will be held during the course. In the light of this introductory theoretical review, the “post-migrant paradigm” will be studied with a special focus on the German society and by exploring its potential contribution for a better understanding of societies shaped by migration and diversity. In the last part of the course, the notion of integration as it is linked to previous discussions on migration and post-migrant society will be handled. Accordingly, what integration policies aim in general and how they differ from the earlier policies targeting the assimilation of migrants, as well as the shortcomings and highly criticized aspects of the integration approach will be scrutinized.
The course will be conducted via both online lecture-discussion sessions and offline written forum discussions. The students are expected to take part in both formats actively via participation activities (Forum posts, online group work etc.).

[H Si] "Mama’s Baby – Papa’s Maybe“. Geschichte und Theorie der Mutterschaft in der Moderne
englischsprachige Veranstaltung
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 20.10.2021
wöchentlich Mi. 12:00 - 14:00 Uhr,  k.A.

Kommentar:

In diesem Hauptseminar wollen wir den verschiedenen Antworten auf die Frage, was ist Mutterschaft in der Moderne, nachgehen. Was hat der mütterliche Körper mit Freiheit, Gleichheit und Emanzipation zu tun? Und welche Rolle spielt die Mutter bzw. Mutterschaft in der Sklaverei, im Kapitalismus, im Faschismus, im Sozialismus und Kommunismus sowie im Kolonialismus? Neben Aspekten wie Gender, Race und Klasse werden wir uns auch mit Themen wie der Verwissenschaftlichung des Körpers, der (re-)produktiven Arbeit und feministischer Theorie auseinandersetzen. Kurzum, wird es uns um eine Historisierung (des Körpers) der Mutter gehen. Um uns dem Thema zu nähern, werden wir uns mit Fachliteratur, Primärquellen und theoretisch-methodischen Texten auseinandersetzen, die den atlantischen Raum seit dem Sklavenhandel thematisieren. Voraussetzung für die Teilnahme ist die Freude daran, komplexe Texte auch in englischer Sprache zu erschließen und die Bereitschaft dazu, eigene Vorannahmen in fragezustellen und sich von den Ideen und Gedanken historischer Akteurinnen überraschen zu lassen. Neben der eigenständigen Lektüre der Texte wird es regelmäßige Treffen auf Webex, externe Vorträge und Diskussionen und soweit möglich Austauschtreffen in Kleinstgruppen geben.


[Si] Democracy and its boundary problem
Englischsprachiges Seminar.
Findet online statt.
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 21.10.2021
wöchentlich Do. 12:00 - 14:00 Uhr,  k.A.

Kommentar:

The seminar addresses democratic theory, the philosophical justifications of democratic government, and especially one important challenge: the boundary problem. This problem consists basically in the question who is to have a democratic voice in a democratic community, or who is a member, for instance whether democracies may unilaterally exclude new would-be members and whether they must give a say to the entire global population or future generations when these are affected by their decisions. An answer to this problem is especially important with respect to democratic responses to current problems such as climate change and migration.
The texts as well as the discussion will be in English, but if you are not a native speaker, do not worry: We do not expect perfect English and we will help each other to formulate our thoughts. The final grades will be assigned on the basis of Hausarbeiten - essays - which you may write in English or German.
The seminar will take place online via MS teams, beginning at 12:10 (ten past 12). Use the following link to inscribe into the team: https://teams.microsoft.com/l/team/19%3a6SOJIo6AbLEWN39zBPa_ZMXowSOdjgjoj36aO5Q4FgY1%40thread.tacv2/conversations?groupId=96531e42-9b18-4840-adc9-860afb9fae1e&tenantId=f75fc27d-a1ce-482f-827e-90e026e66691


[H Si] Everyday Life in the Soviet Union
Unterrichtssprache: Englisch, Offen für Erasmus-Studierende
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 19.10.2021
wöchentlich Di. 10:00 - 12:00 Uhr,  k.A.

Kommentar:

This seminar will address Soviet lifeworlds in a different way than the dissident polarization between ideological constraints and resistant actions suggests. It is about how the Soviet population translated communist ideology into everyday language: in terms of objects, practices, and rituals. In this way, an introduction to current debates about Russian and Soviet history takes place. Central questions are: What did the Bolsheviks' seizure of power mean for the private sphere? How did communism change everyday life by reshaping social structures and personal relationships? How did Soviet leaders attempt to shape the new man, Homo sovieticus? What is the significance of these contexts for political conditions in Eastern Europe today? The blurred boundaries between the public and the private, the collective and the individual, will be examined at various cornerstones of Soviet history. Through literature, film, memoirs, and other primary sources, the influence of politics on popular culture, work, family life, education, humor, and gender relations will be examined. Readings, papers, and discussions will be used to clarify the degree to which individuals created private spheres at home, at work, and among acquaintances in order to escape the influence of the political.
Submission of a major seminar paper is due March 15.

The event will take place online. To receive an invitation, please register under StudIP.


[H Si] Gender in the Late Ottoman Empire and Modern Turkey
Englischsprachige Veranstaltung
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 20.10.2021
wöchentlich Mi. 12:00 - 14:00 Uhr,  k.A.

Kommentar:

The seminar explores the history of the late Ottoman Empire and Turkey through the study of gender relations and gender politics. More specifically, the seminar aims to situate the history of gender relations and politics upon the background of the demise of the multi-ethnic and multi-religious Ottoman Empire and the formation of the modern nation state of Turkey, a process followed by enormous political, ideological, and societal change. Starting with an introduction of the history and theoretical framework of gender studies, the seminar will continue with an overview of the literature on gender in the late Ottoman and Turkey. The seminar will then explore a number of topics, such as the appearance of feminism and feminists in the multi-ethnic fabric of the late Ottoman Empire and the evolution of the feminist movement in modern Turkey; the formation of contending masculinities; the place and negotiation of gender roles and identities in Turkish nationalism and the Turkish nation-building project and politics; and the place and role of women in the discourses and practices of state secularism and Islam in modern Turkey.
The seminar is delivered online.

Sources for the Religious History of the Habsburg Military Border
Osteuropäische Geschichte, (Wintersemester 21/22)

Date and time: Fridays, 12:00 – 14:00h (starting on 22nd of October 2021)

Instructor: Mario Šain, M.A.

Course Description:
This course examines the history of religion and confessional entanglements in the Habsburg Military Border during the early modern period (16th-18th centuries). The class will focus on the analysis of primary sources related to confessional relations between different religious groups and the state. Geographically, the course examines the area of Tripex confinium - intermediate borderlands between Ottoman Empire, Habsburg Monarchy, and the Republic of Venice, with a special focus on the Habsburg side of the border. The introduction part of the class will cover a general overview of confessional politics of the Habsburg state and a discussion about political, theoretical, methodological and social concepts of confessionalism in the Borderlands. The practical part of the class will cover the classification and examination of the primary sources essential for the study of religious relations in the Borderlands. A central focus will be on state sources regulating confessional relations in the Borderlands. Moreover, we will deal with the sources of major religious institutions in and out of the Borderlands, including the Serbian Orthodox Church, Catholic Church, Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome, and the Greek-Catholic Church. Therefore, the practical part of the class includes analysis of original manuscripts written in Latin, German (Gothic alphabet), Italian, and Serbian (Cyrillic alphabet), with a specific focus on Latin and German texts.

Form of teaching:
Lectures of the course will be presented in problematizing the main concepts of religion and practical work with students on sources and original manuscripts. If possible (due to the COVID-19) lectures will be organized in a classroom.

General and specific competencies:
The course aims to give basic knowledge about the confessional problematics of the Habsburg Military Border. Furthermore, to enable students to transcribe and transliterate original manuscripts essential for scholarly research of religion in the Early Modern period.

Targeted group:
Students of history, religion, political and social sciences with an interest in working on primary sources and manuscripts.


Course prerequisites:
Participants should have basic knowledge of the German and Latin languages (preferably Italian or Serbian). The advantage is to have basic knowledge in palaeography.

Evaluation:
At the end of the class, students will be subjected to an examination in the form of a short essay and a transcription of the given text.

Literature and lecture plan:
In preparation.

Does Taylor Swift use more terms of endearment in her lyrics than Justin Bieber? How do people in Sri Lanka address each other? Do women hedge their statements more often than men?

With a view to finding answers to these questions and understanding how speakers of English – as well as speakers of other languages – communicate with one another, the empirical analysis of authentic language data via linguistic corpora, i.e. text collections from song lyrics, face-to-face conversation or other textual resources, has become a generally accepted standard. In order to be in a position to devise empirical answers to some of the above questions and perspectives on English and its different varieties, several steps need to be taken and we will take them together in the course of this class.

The sequencing of a full-fledged corpus-linguistic analysis structures this class. We will familiarise ourselves with characteristics of linguistic corpora and techniques of corpus compilation and annotation. Subsequently, we will focus on how to extract data from linguistic corpora and how to add information we deem relevant for its analysis. In a last step, we will explore how different statistical approaches can help us profile central trends in our data to find answers to the questions we set out to tackle. To facilitate the individual steps, we will become acquainted with tools for corpus creation and annotation, software for corpus querying as well as for statistical analysis.

[Si] An Introduction to African Diasporic Literature in English: Mobility, Migration, and Cultural Shifts

Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 18.10.2021
wöchentlich Mo. 14:00 - 16:00 Uhr,  k.A.

Kommentar:

The African Literature may be understood into three broad phases: first, literature of pre-colonial times, which was steeped in oral tradition of storytelling; second, literature of colonial times, which includes African as well as British writers; lastly, literature of postcolonial period, which started after the Second World War when the black people of former British colonies increasingly migrated to Europe, particularly Britain. This last phase has witnessed yet another transformation, namely the African Diasporic Literature, written by authors who, having made the Western world their home, write from a dual perspective – the perspective of being an African and a European at the same time. Hence, we often come across hyphenated identities in the discourse of African literatures such as Black- British or African American-Canadian whereas recently there is a penchant for moving away from hyphenated identities and use terms like “Afroeuropean” (2011), put forward by Sabrina Brancato or “Afropean”, developed by Johny Pitts (2019). Discussing diaspora in terms of African literature, naturally, the Atlantic diaspora immediately comes to mind, which emerged from the enslavement of Africans and their brutal transportation to the Americas. However, the definition of diaspora has undergone a dramatic transformation in the last years, so is the perception of African Diasporic Literature. Indeed, in the wake of recent migrations from Africa to Europe and Africa to the US and Canada and the numerous changes in African populations around the world, it is necessary to examine the plurality of African Diasporic Literature in order to understand Africa and Africans today from the global, transnational and transcultural perspective.
This seminar aims to introduce students to the fast-expanding field of African Diasporic Literature in English, which has gained a great deal of scholarly attention in the last decades. As African Diaspora is noticeable not only in the United States and Canada, but also in several countries of Western Europe, a number of works by writers of African origin have won awards and gained worldwide recognition such as Leila Aboulela, Yaa Gyasi, Caryl Phillips, Andrea Levy, Diran Adebayo, David Dabydeen, Kwame Kwei-Armah, or Sam Selvon, to name but a few. As students will read selected works of African writers from the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s whose roots are as much in Africa as in the West, they will notice that these works engage with issues of race and racial violence, slavery, (post) colonialism, displacement, uprootedness, de- and re-territorialization, hybrid identities, (un)belonging, travelling memory and history, family and generational sagas, among many others. By particularly focusing on the themes of mobility and migration, students will be guided to trace the cultural shifts the works of African writers tend to demonstrate against heterogeneous historical, political, cultural and geographical landscapes. The main objective of the course is to provide students deeper insight into African Diasporic Literature in English as a distinct area of academic inquiry and teach them the most suitable methods to examine it in a convincing manner. Upon completion of this course, students are expected to show their critical understanding of the literary texts in the form of an oral presentation and a term paper.

Texts Required:

1. "The Gunny Sack" (1989) by African Canadian writer M.G. Vassanji (Novel)
2. "Paradise" (1994) by Arab British writer Abdulrazak Gurnah (Novel)
3. "Afropean: Notes from Black Europe" (2011) by Black British writer Johny Pitts (Travelogue) (Extracts)

A reader with theoretical and secondary materials will be uploaded on Stud.IP at the beginning of the term

Description:
Fictional franchises such as Star Wars, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings and Twilight are not only entertainment monoliths, but prime examples for how fandom shapes transmedia storytelling. Building upon the qualities of transmedia storytelling, we will explore their materialization in comic books, games, novels, music etc. and thus discover unique ways of engaging with the storyworld outside of their medium of origin (Jenkins 2018). Within this seminar, we will especially focus on how transmedia qualities of participatory fan culture can foster writing competence by critically evaluating and designing tasks for beginners to advanced learners.

[Si] Canonization and Decanonization in Anglophone Literature

Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 18.10.2021
wöchentlich Mo. 08:30 - 10:00 Uhr,  Phil. I, 409

Kommentar:

How do literary texts come to be considered as particularly valuable works of art? How, and on what grounds, is their cultural significance challenged?

We are going to deal with these questions by studying processes of 'canonization' and 'decanonization' in a plurality of different contexts. To discuss the workings of the literary canon, we will consider both the aesthetic features of individual works and several critical positions (including feminism, postcolonial theory and sociological approaches).

Students are kindly asked to buy William Shakespeare's /Romeo and Juliet/, preferably in the Arden edition. All other texts will be provided in the form of an e-reader on Stud.IP by the first week of term.

Please note that the seminar is taught digitally. We will rely on both live sessions (Webex) and asynchronous forms of communication.

[H Si] Corpus Linguistics: analysis of (learner) variation
Präsenz-Lehrveranstaltung (ggf. im Wechselunterricht)
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 20.10.2021
wöchentlich Mi. 10:15 - 11:45 Uhr,  Präsenzveranstaltung: Alter Steinbacher Weg 44, 202

Kommentar:

“Corpus linguistics is a research approach that facilitates empirical investigations of language variation and use, resulting in research findings that have much greater generalizability and validity than would otherwise be feasible.” (Biber & Reppen 2015: 1)Corpus linguistics as a tool can be used in many areas of linguistics, such as variation studies, contrastive and comparative linguistics, translation studies, and it can also play an important role in applied linguistics, for instance in language teaching. In this block seminar, students will (i) learn about the field of corpus linguistics and learner corpus research, (ii) get to know a number of important (English) corpora, (iii) learn about tools and programs that facilitate the use of corpora and the analysis of corpus data (AntConc, UAM Corpus Tool, Excel, R Studio), and (iv) start working on their own empirical corpus study (either in pairs/small groups or individually). This research project will be the basis for the term paper.In order to analyze variation in English, for instance based on different foreign language learners of English, by comparing different varieties of English, genres or modes, students should have an understanding of the relevant terms and concepts of the different fields of linguistics (i.e., morphology, syntax, semantics, …). Furthermore, this is a learning-by-doing course introducing statistical methods based on topical linguistic problems. Ideally, students should have an interest in quantitative data analysis (and statistics). Prior knowledge is an asset but not a pre-requisite to successfully complete this course.

Course requirements:

Regular attendance
Weekly reading assignments or completion of tasks
Active participation in class
Short oral report of a corpus study
Term paper (for full credits; deadline: 31 March 2022)


[H Si] Corpus Linguistics: Corpora & Methods
Präsenz-Lehrveranstaltung (ggf. im Wechselunterricht)

Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 21.10.2021
wöchentlich Do. 12:00 - 14:00 Uhr,  Präsenztermin: Seminargebäude II (Alter Steinbacher Weg 44), 102

Kommentar:

Corpus linguistics has become an increasingly prevalent method of linguistic analysis in the past 30 years. A linguistic corpus is a large collection of computerized texts, sampled to be representative of a certain variety of language and used for linguistic studies. The advantage of such corpora is that they can be electronically searched and analyzed, usually with the help of special corpus software. Because corpora are usually very large (often consisting of several million words), they ideally lend themselves to the study of language variation and change.
This course is intended as an introduction to the methods of corpus linguistics and their application to the study of English. We will familiarize ourselves with important synchronic and diachronic corpora, such as those in the so-called ICAME collection. There will also be a section on the different ways that such text collections can be compiled and used (including an introduction to corpus analysis software such as AntConc and statistical methods to test the validity of one's results).

Requirements for graded credit tba in the course (final exam on 17.02.2022 or term paper to be submitted according to the department-wide deadline on 31.03.2022).

Kommentar:

Victorian Fin de Siècle is a term typically used to refer to the end of the 19th century and its literary and artistic movement. The spirit of the fin de siècle can be best described as a dramatic mixture of ennui, cynicism, pessimism and hope for a new beginning. Inspired by French art and artists, British writers developed their own versions of what is also called “aestheticism” and “decadence”. We will look at how literature was used to comment on Victorian society and discuss whether there is such a thing as immoral art. This seminar also aims at exploring gender theory and gender performance when it comes to the representation of women and the dandy. We will be reading Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, excerpts from Wilde’s plays, excerpts from Maurier’s Trilby, fin de siècle poetry, and selected excerpts from Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
In this course, students will learn to critically engage with both primary and secondary material, apply narratological concepts and terminology, and will acquire skills for writing academic term papers.
Before the course starts, please read The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde in the following edition:
Wilde, Oscar. The Picture of Dorian Gray. London: Penguin Classics, 2003.

Kommentar:

Although in the German school system pupils are somewhat pre-sorted according to their age and alleged abilities in an attempt to form homogeneous groups, empirical research has proven the homogeneous learner group to be an illusion. Therefore, the importance of dealing with heterogeneity by creating a learning environment that caters to a variety of individual interests, needs, learning styles, talents and weaknesses has been acknowledged for decades. In this course the students will examine ideas of heterogeneity from a theoretical perspective and explore practical techniques in preparing micro teaching units.

Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 20.10.2021
wöchentlich Mi. 14:00 - 16:00 Uhr,  k.A.

Kommentar:

In this seminar students are introduced to some basic theory on interaction, motivation and authenticity (e.g. van Lier 1996 – see below). Likewise, some tenets of speaking and corrective feedback are revisited to lay the groundwork for a collaborative digital project. The latter consists in the students acting as online mentors for 10th graders at a school in Bad Hersfeld. Through the use of digital media (e.g. MS Teams, Flipgrid), the mentors will interact with their mentees, provide feedback, and guide their individual progress. A staple of all TEFLhybrid courses is that students write weekly learning log entries to reflect critically on their past and present experiences as well as to cast visions for their professional future. The sessions start at 02:15pm (c.t.) so the learners will be home from school and able to join the conference call periodically for synchronous online activities. Ideally, one face-to-face meeting between mentors and mentees will be held toward the end of the semester.

Kommentar:

Taking on the role of ethnographer in the English foreign language classroom enables students as well as teachers to continuously explore cultures, their own as well as foreign. Moreover, ethnographic projects are inherently task-oriented and largely self-regulated, facilitating authentic and meaningful use of the foreign language. We will examine how to use this approach in the EFLC in order to critically explore the U.S. American media landscape, (sub)cultures, politics, and their unparalleled transcultural influence over the last years.

Kommentar:

This course mainly focuses on covering important areas of English grammar and linguistic features such as aspect. Participants will review the rules for the use of tense and aspect and will be encouraged to develop a situational awareness of the wide range of communicative possibilities inherent in the English verb system. The course materials and procedures include: review of tenses; analysis of modals; discussion of the conditional form; usage of passive voice; rules of reported speech, study of the functions of the -ing form (gerund, present participle) and infinitive; articles; relative clauses with a special focus on comma rules; adjectives and adverbs.

Each area is introduced by means of homework assignments comprising illustrations for use and practical exercises. The particular grammatical problem is then examined thoroughly in class before further application of the relevant forms is attempted. Please keep in mind that each week you are required to review a number of chapters from RM before class, focusing on filling in any gaps in your own basic grammar knowledge. Weekly quizzes will provide feedback whether you have done so successfully. Class sessions will begin with the preparatory work (homework check, pre-quiz questions, the quiz and post-quiz discussion), but most of the class session will involve extensive work to help you attain the higher level of mastery expected on the final exam.

Since grammatical competence is a part of communicative competence, the course sets out to cover the fundamental aspects of grammar to achieve accuracy in communication. As grammar rules help learners develop a habit of thinking logically and clearly, studying grammar will make students both accurate and fluent when using language.

The study of the history of the English language offers highly relevant insights into how the language has changed over the course of the centuries and into how the English language is structured and functions all around the world today. Therefore, we will pay particular attention to the different periods in the history of the English language, i.e. Old English, Middle English, Early Modern English, Late Modern English and Present-day English, in order to follow the structural changes on the levels of phonology, lexis, syntax and semantics that have led to the English language as we use it today.

This seminar covers a range of topics around gender and diversity within medicine and psychiatry. Going from different formulations of illness and disease, such as hysteria, the Freudian case study and the place of women and people of color in medical research, we will look at medical studies and psychiatry to discuss gender, sexuality, race and diversity in an interdisciplinary fashion. We will navigate different media together, such as chronic illness memes, internet culture, documentary film and medical case descriptions. Weekly sessions are clustered around different topics and take shape in different formats. Next to more text-based Webex sessions, you will also work with 'dossiers' or online reading assignments.

Every day, we are exposed to advertisements which have an indirect or direct impact on our purchasing decisions. Advertisers spend an enormous amount of time and money to select the language (and images) to convey their messages to us. In this course, we will examine advertising strategies from a linguistic perspective, focusing on how sounds, words, sentence structures, and meanings are used in advertising messages. We will, for example, investigate the linguistic tools and strategies that advertisers use to convey meaning, elicit emotions, and direct the audience’s focus.

This course is devoted to the exploration of the relationship between politics and language. We will critically discuss current political discourse in the Anglophone world surrounding topics such as the upcoming electoral politics, Brexit, policies concerning immigration, health care, etc. In doing so, we will pay special attention to linguistic approaches to political discourse analysis, with an emphasis on those approaches closely aligned to Cognitive Linguistics (e.g., Conceptual Metaphor Theory, Lakoff's Moral Politics, Critical Discourse Analysis). We will also make use of corpus-based methodologies to analyze political speeches, (social) media-based discourse and political satire.

“A man who wants the truth becomes a scientist; a man who wants to give free play to his subjectivity may become a writer; but what should a man do who wants something in between?” - Robert Musil, The Man without Qualities

In this seminar, we will investigate the development of literary and cultural theory throughout the 20th century, from the New Critics of old to the Digital Humanities of late. We will ask how the academic study of literature came about and see how each new theoretical movement justifies itself as an academic endeavor. The application of different theoretical frameworks as well as highlighting and comparing their respective ideological and methodological projects will take center stage in this seminar.

The course will be held weekly using Cisco Webex and materials will be uploaded on Stud.IP. Please register via both Stud.IP and FlexNow.

We will meet weekly here from 10 to 12: https://uni-giessen.webex.com/meet/kai-uwe.schmehl

[Si] Make it New: Literary Manifestos from the 18th to the 21st Century
digital
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 19.10.2021
wöchentlich Di. 08:30 - 10:00 Uhr,  Phil. I, B 410

Kommentar:

Manifestos are productive starting points for studying literary and cultural change. On the one hand, they can help us understand how artists seek to innovate literature, e.g. by propagating a new style. On the other hand, the manifesto is an art form in its own right which has changed quite considerably over the past few centuries.

In this seminar, we are going to discuss a number of different manifestos from Alexander Pope's early 18th-century "Essay on Criticism" to 21st-century feminist manifestos. Our major goal is to attain a better understanding of the manifesto's role during periods of cultural change (neoclassicism, romanticism, modernism, etc.), and of the history of this art form in anglophone (read: mainly British) literature.

Please note that the seminar is taught digitally. We will rely on both live sessions (Webex) and asynchronous forms of communication. A reader will be made available on Stud.IP by the first week of term.

wöchentlich Mo. 14:00 - 16:00 Uhr,  k.A.

Kommentar:

Description:
This course will investigate the concept of mediation (ger. Sprachmittlung). Generally speaking, mediation activities make communication possible between individuals who are unable – for whatever reason – to communicate with each other directly (CEFR 2020). In schools, especially written mediation is becoming increasingly important as it is now an obligatory task in the Abitur. During this course we will take a critical look at past and current research on mediation, explore methodological options for constructing mediation tasks for beginners to advanced learners, argue about problems of implementation as well as talk about assessment. Further, within the seminar students are to design their own mediation tasks.

Prerequisites:
Successful completion of module TEFL I.

Required Reading:
Reading material will be provided via StudIP.

Credit:
Graded (non-modularised and modularised): regular attendance, active participation in class, a micro teaching unit and a written term paper.

[Si] Mental Illness in Popular Film
BITTE BEACHTEN SIE: Diese Veranstaltung findet in Präsenz statt, ggf. im Wechselunterricht.
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 19.10.2021
wöchentlich Di. 16:00 - 18:00 Uhr,  Präsenztermin: Phil. I, B 009

Kommentar:

Representations of mental illness are part and parcel of Hollywood filmmaking: Be it in the form of a specially gifted person, a cunning serial killer, or a struggling patient in a mental institution. American films frequently draw on mental states that are perceived to lie outside of the norm, with an astonishingly small repertoire. Yet, some contemporary productions break the mold of these ever-same representations to offer new perspectives on who and what is perceived to be 'mentally ill.'

In this seminar, we will engage with the topic of mental illness as mediated in Hollywood films. We will consider the medical footing of diagnosing mental states and the role of stereotypes in entertainment media and cultural discourse. Together, we will watch four films: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), Twelve Monkeys (1995), Memento (2000), and Shutter Island (2010). Approaching these films from a film studies angle, we will consider the impact of entertainment media on the cultural understanding of mental illness and identify more pluralistic ways of film production and reception.

The first session of this seminar (Oct 19) will be online. The films will be watched together in class - no preparation is needed. Please enroll on FlexNow and StudIP.

[Si] Middle English
Präsenz-Lehrveranstaltung (ggf. im Wechselunterricht)
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 18.10.2021
wöchentlich Mo. 14:00 - 16:00 Uhr,  Alter Steinbacher Weg 44, 011

Kommentar:

Middle English lasted from about 1100 to 1500. During this period, English underwent radical changes, transforming itself from the highly inflectional Old English into the almost analytical Present Day English. Middle English also produced famous literary figures, among whom Geoffrey Chaucer is probably the best known. During this course we will use one of Chaucer's works to familiarize ourselves with the linguistic structure of this stage of the English language.
The aim is to enable students to read Middle English texts in the original and to describe and analyse Middle English grammar. In addition, Middle English will be viewed from a wider perspective. On the one hand, we will look at language change from Indo-European over Proto-Germanic and Old English that resulted in what is known as Middle English, on the other hand we will investigate changes from Middle English to Early Modern English (1500-1700).

Kommentar:

Persuasion is the most powerful tool a person can have. From the work of politicians, to the efforts of corporations and advertisers, and throughout our everyday personal and professional lives we are being persuaded and trying to be persuasive. Businesses may try to convince you to buy their products, politicians may try to convince you to vote for them and your friends may try to convince you to go with them to a party. In this course we will therefore focus on persuasive communication. We will blend theoretical and practical insights from communication studies, business, cultural studies and politics to learn more about the persuasive role of communication across individual, interpersonal, community-based and societal levels. You will lean how to recognise, analyse and reflect on how we are being persuaded, why that matters, and how we can use persuasive tools and techniques to make ourselves more persuasive in turn.

Kommentar:

Having a well-structured, yet flexible approach to planning units and lessons helps you deal with the complexity of factors involved in teaching. Some good teaching ideas evaporate upon entering the classroom when you are facing unpredicted situations and unexpected pupils’ conduct, however, a well-devised plan leaves room for alternative, possibly spontaneous interaction and creative solutions or improvisation without throwing you off track. We will investigate a variety of factors that are essential for good planning and classroom management, and you will practice planning a lesson/unit circling around a topic of your choice.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of module TEFL I

Expectations: Regular attendance, active participation, presentation/micro teaching unit and submission of a term paper.

Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 18.10.2021

Kommentar:

In order to communicate in English, learners need to acquire a broad range of lexico-grammatical competences and skills. For instance, they need to learn the meanings of words, how they are pronounced and written, and how they are used in combination with other words to produce and understand text (in the broadest sense of the term). Based on current national and international research, this course looks at vocabulary learning and instruction from a theme-based perspective. Its central aims are a) to familiarize participants with current concepts and models of lexico-grammatical learning, and b) to advance their professional expertise in teaching vocabulary in thematically based EFL sequences, focusing on secondary schools.

This is a TEFLhybrid course: http://www.uni-giessen.de/faculties/f05/engl/tefl/teflhybrid

Kommentar:

Postcolonial Englishes as used in first-language territories such as the United States, Australia and South Africa, but also in second-language countries like Singapore, India or Nigeria have been described from various linguistic angles – be they phonological, lexical or syntactic. Still, the ways in which people do things with language, i.e. the pragmatics of postcolonial Englishes, have so far not been in the centre of academic attention.

In the course of this class, we will investigate the English language as it is used in Sri Lanka from a strictly empirical perspective. Relying on the Sri Lankan component of the International Corpus of English, we will explore the pragmatics of Sri Lankan English by describing routines of complimenting, swearing, insulting, requesting, etc. in this South Asian variety of English.

Ungraded Credit: Regular attendance and an in-class presentation.

digital
Dozent/-in:
Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 18.10.2021
wöchentlich Mo. 12:00 - 14:00 Uhr,  k.A.

Kommentar:

Just like any other living language, English is neither geographically nor socially homogeneous. More often than not there are many ways of saying the "same thing". For instance, there are different possibilities of forming negative interrogatives with do-support: "Did you not know that?", "Didn't you know that?" and some speakers would even accept "Did not you know that?" Thus, variation is one of the fundamental characteristics of human language. Sociolinguistics, the study of language in society, investigates how social groups vary in their use of a language (it is imaginable that "Did not you know that?" is used more by older speakers) in different situations ("Didn't you know that?" is used much more in informal, spoken than in formal, written language). Dialectology, on the other hand, studies the geographical variability of language (e.g. considering variants such as "ken" for 'know' or "thou" for 'you').
This lecture will review important principles and assumptions of the discipline and discuss selected sociolinguistic studies. Topics also include historical sociolinguistics and dialectology, i.e. the reconstruction and analysis of the social and geographical distribution of variants in earlier stages of a language, the morphosyntax of pidgins and creoles (varieties of English that have resulted from contact with other languages) as well as morphosyntactic variation in the New Englishes around the world.

Kommentar:

This course aims to teach speaking and listening across cultures. Since globalization has created a space of cross-cultural encounters, it is essential that students are able to mediate, reflect and speculate on cultural diversity, different cultural perspectives and pluralism as presented in a text, a speech or a lecture in English. To this end, the course focuses on developing and enhancing students’ listening and speaking skills for academic purposes at level B2+/ C1 CEFR. After attending this course, students should be able not only to comprehend an academic presentation in detail, but also to summarise its gist and ask critical questions about any weaknesses in the line of argumentation. Further, they should manage to present a research project and discuss its findings in a presentation using effective visual aids as well as academic language and vocabulary. Students are expected to present their views in a logical and systematic manner, correctly and appropriately using academic phraseology as found, for example, in the Manchester Academic Phrasebank, tense and aspect, particularly verbs of stating, contradicting and comparing, as well as everyday and academic collocations. Hence, students will be encouraged to express their ideas and arguments in a grammatically correct manner by using clear syntax and vocabulary appropriate for academic discourse. As the course is designed to teach speaking in a formal setting, students will be encouraged to speak in a convincing and confident manner by adhering to the rules of an academic discussion. Consequently, students’ academic presentations are supposed to have unity and coherence as well as appropriate use of idiomatic expressions. In order to improve competency in their listening comprehension, students will learn how to listen to speeches on various topics and take notes by identifying the main idea as well as the development of the main arguments and by paying attention to language and vocabulary. Listening skills will be further refined by encouraging students to take part in active class discussions and presentations individually or in groups. The fundamental aim of the course is to make students hold and understand an academic or job-related presentation in a professional manner required at university level to pass their courses. As the final assessment comprises a written exam, including a listening task and a presentation to test their oral skills, students will obtain feedback throughout the course to overcome their weaknesses so that they are able to prove themselves as successful speakers and listeners.

Zeit und Ort:
regelmäßiger Termin ab 22.10.2021
wöchentlich Fr. 10:00 - 12:00 Uhr,  k.A.

Kommentar:

In this seminar, we will examine Standard English from two different perspectives: in a diachronic approach, we will explore how it developed from Old English over time to become the variety we all know as Standard English today. Then, taking a synchronic approach, we will investigate different standards that have developed in the anglophone world. We will examine standardization processes on different structural levels (such as phonology, lexis, grammar, etc.), ongoing processes of normative (re)orientation and speakers' attitudes and perceptions toward their own and other standard varieties.

Exam date: February 18, 2022

wöchentlich Do. 10:00 - 12:00 Uhr,  Präsenztermin: Seminargebäude II (Alter Steinbacher Weg 44), 101

Kommentar:

Syntax is the part of grammar which deals with the ways words are combined into sentences. We will first look at some key concepts in syntax from a structuralist perspective, starting with smaller syntactic units such as the word and the notion of different word classes. Phrases are another key concept syntactically superordinate to words, which function as constituents in clauses. In this context, it will be of pivotal importance to keep the dichotomy of form and function in mind. Apart from analysing different types of clauses (and sentences) and different ways of ordering elements in a clause (and a sentence), we will also examine the semantic roles of clause elements to discover the close connection between syntax and meaning. We will then briefly look into other approaches to syntax (valency grammar, functional sentence perspective, generative grammar), before we explore syntactic variation in selected varieties of English and the differences between spoken and written grammars.

Prerequisites: Successful completion of the ‘Introduction to English Linguistics’ course.

Reading: Reading material will be provided on closed reserve in the department library or will be made available for download from Stud.IP.

Description:
In this course we will dissect the broad terms of intermediality and transmediality in the light of the EFLC. We will explore what happens when ‘translating’ one medium to another (e. g. graphic novel to film) and how choices of literary or cinematic devices change the impression of the reader or viewer. Additionally, we will dissect how interactivity in new media shapes real-time transmedia storytelling in interactive films or virtual games. Further, we will discover in how far texts are intertwined in various discourses. Concurrently, we will discuss the teaching potential of these foci for the EFLC, critically evaluating and designing tasks for beginners to advanced learners when working with inter- and transmedial literature.

Prerequisites:
Successful completion of module TEFL I.

Required Reading:
Reading material will be provided via StudIP.

Description:
This course focusses on teaching short stories in the EFLC. Working with literature offers an authentic encounter with the target language and culture. However, it is argued that in the course of outcome-orientation, literary texts might only play a marginal role in today´s classroom. To counter this trend, we will explore ways of integrating them into competence-oriented frameworks. Hence we will analyse various, multimedial short stories covering different topics and discuss their teaching potentials. In more detail, during this course we will take a critical look at past and current research on teaching short stories, explore methodological options for constructing tasks, argue about problems of implementation as well as talk about assessment. Further, within the seminar students are to design and conduct their own lessons centered around short stories.

Kommentar:

Testing and assessment serve many purposes in classroom context. Different test purposes require different test formats and methods: From achievement to proficiency tests, from ‘regular class tests’ as summative achievement evaluation for grading purposes to formative assessment and self-assessment, from discrete-point-testing to holistic assessment and integrative testing. Since testing and assessment are integral parts of teaching, future teachers should be aware of underlying constructs and premises. Designed as a block course, we will start out with theories and didactic premises of testing and assessment in the foreign language classroom, followed by supervised application of theoretical outlines in group work (designing test items and assessment grids), which are then to be presented, critically evaluated, and re-designed.

Fr. 25.02.2022,10.00 - 16.00 Uhr   Online-Seminar

Kommentar:

Old English is the earliest form of the English language. It developed from the languages of the North Sea Germanic tribes that settled and spread in Roman Britain from the mid-5th century on and consisted of four main dialects, Kentish, West Saxon, Mercian and Northumbrian. Modern English descends from the Mercian dialect of Old English, but the development of the language involved a significant amount of contact, particularly with Old Norse and Norman French. The linguistic structure of these two historical stages of English thus differ considerably.
This course will compare the Old English linguistic structure with that of Modern English from a typological point of view. We will look at individual linguistic features of Old English and place them in a typological context, and compare that with the Modern English equivalents in a typological context in order to determine whether development of English has made the language profile typologically more common or more rare. The course is designed as a hands-on exploration using typological databases and will therefore serve not only as an introduction to Old English, but also as an introduction to linguistic typology and how to use large-scale cross-linguistic databases.

Reading: to be announced at the beginning of the course.

Prerequisite:
Registration: by FlexNow.
Credit: ungraded: regular attendance, active participation in discussions and in-class presentation; graded: as above plus a final exam.

Description:
“Video is simply another classroom tool; it doesn’t do the teaching for you.“
(Scrivener 2011: 376)

While audiovisual media in various forms has certainly become an integral part of our everyday life and routine, it is insufficient to consume it passively with our students. This is why in the first part of our seminar, we are going to introduce a wide range of audiovisual media and learn how to actively ‘read’ dually-coded material (feature films, documentaries, youtube videos, etc.).
In the second part of the course, we are going to discuss why and how to integrate audiovisual media in the EFLC, considering young, intermediate and advanced learners. By the end of the course, students should be able to answer the following questions: Which videos/film genres hold the biggest potential for my students? Which competences can I foster with audiovisual material? What are appropriate tasks for my learner group?

Prerequisites:

Successful completion of module TEFL I.

Required Reading:
Reading material will be provided via StudIP.

Kommentar:

“English is a highly diversified language that appears in a multitude of varieties across the globe. These varieties may differ extensively in their structural properties.”
(Siemund 2013, back cover)

The term ‘World Englishes’ typically refers to non-native or second language varieties of English (also called ‘New Englishes’) part of what Kachru (1985) classified as ‘outer circle’ varieties of English; yet it could also encompass the ‘expanding circle’ varieties or even the ‘inner circle’ varieties (Filppula et al. 2017; Meshrie and Bhatt 2008; Wolf and Polzenhagen 2009). Typically, the plural form ‘Englishes’ is used to highlight the (systematic) diversity found in the uses of this language across the world (Meshrie and Bhatti 2008: 3). The two most prominent inner circle Englishes are British and American English. However, these are not the varieties we will focus on in this course. Instead, we will investigate outer circle (such as Indian or Nigerian English) or expanding circle varieties (for example the English spoken in Korea or Japan). Advances in corpus linguistics as well as the availability of corpora including samples of naturally occurring language use other than of native Englishes allow for substantial investigations of world Englishes.

The aim of this course is to acquire an understanding of (i) the central models describing the evolution of varieties of English and (ii) patterns of development of selected World Englishes, and (iii) to empirically investigate structures/patterns/grammatical features with the help of corpora.

In order to successfully follow and complete the course it is necessary that you have taken and passed the course Introduction to English Linguistics.

Course requirements:

Regular attendance
Weekly reading assignments or completion of tasks
Active participation in class
Short oral report of a corpus study
Term paper (for full credits; deadline: 31 March 2022)

Kommentar:

Asian Englishes are generally divided into South Asian and Southeast Asian Englishes. In this context, South Asia comprises – among other nations – Bangladesh, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, and constitutes an interesting case in the analysis of world Englishes due to linguistically complex contact scenarios with e.g. various indigenous languages. The same holds for Southeast Asian Englishes (e.g. Hong Kong English, Malaysian English, Singapore English).

In the course of this seminar, we will introduce different theoretical models of the evolution of world Englishes, engage with research on Asian Englishes, and focus on differences and similarities of these varieties on the different structural levels of phonology, morphology, lexis, and syntax.
