Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The aim of the discussion class is to give students the opportunity to read, discuss, and engage with the key texts related to the different lectures in the "Key questions and concepts". This should deepen the understanding of the concepts and issues addressed in the lecture class.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The discussion class mainly builds on discussion and the active participation of all students. For each workshop one group of students will act as 'workshop leaders'. The distribution of tasks to the students will be done in the second unit.
A discussion workshop generally has four phases:
1) go through the texts in smaller groups and discuss their key points (max. 30 minutes); the workshop leaders should be the moderators of these discussions;
2) bring the results to the plenary (50 minutes); we go through each text and elaborate out the key issues;
3) reflect on what we learn across the papers and how they relate to the cases that have been presented in the first unit (max. 30 minutes);
4) feedback on how the workshop worked.

To pass the discussion class, students are expected to:
1) Read the literature for the respective discussion workshop and;
2) Prepare for the discussion: analyse the paper along the six questions (take short notes and bring them to class):
a) What are the core questions that the text asks? Express them in your own words.
b) What are the problems/tensions the text is pointing at?
c) What hypothesis/es does the text defend? Identify key passages.
d) What are core concepts/terms that the text operates with and that you identified as being important?
e) What is the empirical field addressed in the text?
f) Where did you meet problems when reading the text?
3) Participate actively in all the discussions.
4) Chair one workshop with your group (approx. 5-6 people): No power point presentations are requested, but preparing questions for the text that had to be read and think about ways how to conduct the discussion; pay attention to the time management and that everybody engages.
5) Each group has to write one short essay (2000 words) on the papers they had to deal with for the workshop. The essay should be handed in (uploaded on moodle) three weeks after the workshop presentation. A good essay has an introduction which points at the issues at stake, elaborates on the key-points of the papers, points to some elements of the cases where we did see connections and draws a short conclusion.
6) Adhere to the general standards of good academic practice.
