WiSe 16/17: PS-Introduction to Literary Studies - Working with Literary Texts
Nadja Ben Khelifa
This tutorial, which is designed to be taken along with the lecture “Introduction to Literary Studies: Basic Questions, Concepts, and Methods”, offers students a chance to apply the knowledge they have gained in that lecture. On the basis of a selection of poems, a prose text and a drama, they will be able to develop and hone their skills in analyzing and interpreting literary texts. In addition, a few pieces of literary criticism are read so that students may familiarize themselves with scholarly texts and thought. The tutorial aims to give students the ability to understand a historically and generically diverse range of texts and to talk and write about them in clear terms. It additionally offers an introduction to academic writing and research techniques.
The class is taught in English.
Regular attendance and active participation are compulsory. Credits for the whole module can be obtained by taking a 90-minute exam (based on the lecture and tutorial).
Please note that the number of participants per tutorial is limited. Students must sign up via Campus Management in order to be allotted a place.close
