Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In this workshop we will analyse several short narratives by well known contemporary novelists and writers of short fiction from the perspective of their suitability as texts for the language classroom. The stories cover a wide variety of topics and styles, from realistic to postmodern, from neo-gothic to postcolonial and/or from comic to surreal and grotesque. Among the corpus of texts are short stories by Julian Barnes, Graham Swift, Ian McEwan, Doris Lessing, and William Boyd. After establishing the theoretical parameters of the genre we will focus primarily on narrative strategies, character construction, thematic as well as stylistic concerns. Last but not least we will explore these texts as potential teaching material.
Requirements for credit: regular attendance, active participation in class, one oral presentation, final essay.
