Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Reflecting our integrated teaching and learning concept, this course includes the building of theoretical knowledge as well as its application to specific cases in East Asia. Importantly, this seminar will be used to practice a few essential academic skills that you will need for term papers and MA theses.
First we discuss some of the theoretical approaches to economic development as well as the design of a research paper, in particular how a standard theoretical framework looks like and what the function and design of a literature review should be. Students then learn about the key theories of economic development. This knowledge will be tested in a multiple-choice test. In a second step, a predefined framework will be applied to conduct an analysis of economic development in four countries of East Asia: Japan, South Korea, China, and North Korea. The focus is on the dynamic process of economic development and the corresponding role of the state.
Students master the fundamental ideas of various key theories of economic development; in particular classical/neoclassical, Marxist, Keynesian and dependency theory, dirigisme, structuralism, and neoliberalism. They understand the developmental paths of the individual East Asian countries both from a general perspective and with regard to their particularities, and are able to conduct comparative, method-based country case analyses and to apply the acquired knowledge to contemporary developments in the region.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

In the first part, this is a text-based seminar. Accordingly, students will be asked to read book chapters or articles. This will create a foundation for active discussion during the seminar. Expect reading about 40 pages per week on average.
Each student will have to take part in a multiple choice exam on the theories of economic development. More details on this assignment will be provided during class. Please note that this also involves reading multiple sources.
Furthermore, each student is required to actively contribute to one team presentation. This includes joint handouts with the key points on the assigned topic, and joint PPT presentations. Handouts and PPTs must be submitted electronically 24 hours before the course begins via Moodle. More details on the assignment will be provided during class.
The final assignment will be a term paper. More details on this assignment will be provided during class. Writing the term paper will require extensive reading. You are strongly advised to start early: think about your topic and acquaint yourself with the state of the art in that particular field.
To adjust the workload, we will occasionally skip single units and allot this time to the preparation of the team presentations and other assignments.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

(1) Participation: Students’ participation in discussion is an integral part of this course. Regular participation is thus mandatory. The following rules apply: The grade for attendance is “1” in the case of up to three absences. If you are absent for up to 4 times, the grade will be “2”. If you are absent for up to 5 times, the grade will “3”, and so forth.
Please note: To ensure a smooth proceeding of the seminar, please be on time. Students who are late by more than 10 minutes will not be able to sign the attendance list.
(2) M/C exam on the theories of economic development: The exam will cover the elements of the first three classes (classical, neoclassical, and heterodox theories of development). The exam will not be repeated, so make sure to attend.
(3) Team presentation: All members of the team will receive the same grade, notwithstanding their individual contribution or their performance during the presentation. So make sure to organize work well and according to the individual strengths of the team members.
(4) Term paper: Students are required to write a term paper (Seminararbeit). Details including layout and grading criteria will be announced during class. The term papers are due on August 30, 2018, thus leaving you the summer break to finish them. It is highly advisable that you aim for a much earlier date. Delays, even if caused by unforeseen events, are at your own risk. Term papers will only be accepted via Moodle as PDF. Please do not submit any other file formats.
The following rules apply to late submission of all assignments: A delay in submission of up to 1 week will result in downgrading by one full grade. A delay in submission of up to 2 weeks will result in downgrading by two full grades, and so forth.
The final grade for the course will be calculated as follows:
Attendance: 15%
M/C exam: 25%
Team presentation: 15%
Term paper: 45%

Please note: The term paper is an indispensable component of the seminar, in particular as it serves as a direct preparation for the MA thesis. It thus legally amounts to a minimal requirement (“Mindestanforderung”). In order to finish the course, students must have their term paper graded with at least “4”. Students who fail to submit a term paper will be graded “5” for the seminar regardless of their other achievements.
