Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Comment for course catalogue
Participation at first session is obligatory! The course is a regular lecture seminar (that is, it will consist of lecture units and seminar units) AND preparation for a field practicum to Siberia in the summer semester 2018. The regional focus of the field practicum will be the Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) in eastern Siberia and will be connected to an ongoing FWF-funded project.
Potential participants in the field practicum are strongly encouraged to participate. At the same time, you can participate in the course without planning to join the field practicum.

Aims, contents and method of the course
The first half of the course will consist primarily of lectures (and films), while the second half will have seminar character. We will provide an introduction to the cultural configurations and ethnic diversity of Siberia (and the Russian Far East), including indigenous and non-indigenous groups and lifeways. Historical dimensions and the colonial legacy of these lifeways will be covered as well. Given the regional focus of the field practicum, the BAM region (including the northern parts of eastern Siberia) will receive more detailed attention than other parts of Siberia and the Russian Far East. Throughout the course, sufficient time will be reserved for student presentations and discussions.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Unlike other course, assessment will include a short exam and a (relatively short) seminar paper, which - taken together - will not require more input than comparable courses. Thus, a short exam covering the first part of the course will count for 20% of the grade, while a (short) seminar paper due at the end of the course - will count for 40%. Short oral presentations will make up 30% of the grade, and the remaining 10% will be determined by course participation. Each assignment is associated with points, which equal the percentages associated with the assignment (that is, the highest score on the exam is 20 points).

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

In order to receive a passing grade, you need at least 60 points. A 'sehr gut' requires at least 90 out of 100 points (a 'gut' at least 80 points, etc.). Given the mixture of lectures and seminars, we will enforce attendance requirements primarily in the second half of the course (that is, from November through January).

Prüfungsstoff

The exam will cover the 'basics' of the social and cultural anthropology of Siberia (and the BAM region), as it will be presented in the first half of the course.
