Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course will familiarize students with a research of a historical topic in a global framework, but also train them to work with different kinds of texts, oral and visual presentations in relation to this topic – from abstracts and short essays to giving feedback, presenting a paper in a conference setting and preparing a field research mission. The practice of specific methodological and communication skills will be embedded in the subject of ‘Global Entanglements of American Civil Rights Movement'. This historical theme has gained prominence recently in the public discourse in the aftermath of the Black Lives Matter movement and the surge in critical race studies. The various forms of communication and exchange between black America and the decolonization movement in the “Third World” during the Cold War era offer opportunities for students to look at the issue of racial discrimination from a historical perspective, engage in critical discussion of political and socio-economic issues, but also to build connections to broader theoretical issues and debates in today´s field of Global History.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The students are expected to engage in continuous work throughout the semester with weekly reading and writing assignments as well as in-class presentations. Keeping in mind that many course attendants will arrive with different disciplinary backgrounds, the course instructor will make a special effort to set up a common level of reflection and debate for all the participants. In the middle of the semester, all course attendants will hand in a written draft paper on one of the topics discussed during the course. A fellow student will then read and provide feedback on this draft. During the course, the course instructor will encourage work in groups with students collaborating on different weekly tasks.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Students are expected to come to class regularly (only two missed classes are allowed) and to engage in continuous work throughout the semester with weekly reading and writing assignments as well as one in-class goup-presentation. All assignments have to be submitted through the Moodle-platform.

At the middle of semester all course attendants will be obliged to hand in a written draft paper on one of the topics discussed during the course. This draft will then be read and feedbacked by a fellow student.

The grade is going to be based on regular contribution in class (25%), written assignments (25%), participation in an oral group-presentation (25%) as well as the final version of the paper (12-15 pages) (25%).
