Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The focus of this course will be on three examples of what has become known as the genre of the university or campus tale. Whereas Simon Gray's Butley is a kind of comedy of ill-manners, featuring the rude and frustrated EngLit professor Ben Butley, whose professional and domestic life is falling apart, David Mamet's much more serious and controversial problem play Oleanna shows how a misunderstanding between a lecturer and his student may turn into a fierce and harrowing conflict, involving issues of gender, class and power. Finally, David Lodge's by now classic campus novel Changing Places combines the hilarious story of a British and an American academic who swap countries, universities, lives and identities with an exploration of the changing social, political and cultural climate in 1970s Britain and America. In addition to these three texts, on which students' papers will be based, we will be reading and discussing a selection of poems, excerpts from plays and short stories from various periods of English literature.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

This class deepens and extends the subject matter of the introductory lectures. It is intended to help students develop a well founded yet independent critical approach to literary texts. Participants are given a thorough grounding in various skills and techniques required for the writing of academic papers: the use of works of reference; the use and evaluation of secondary literature; more about the theory and practice of critical analysis; the correct use of literary terminology. A selection of literary texts forms the basis for this work. On completing the class, students should be in a position to take an active part in the literary seminar.
