Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This colloquium series is intended to bring together the doctoral students and the instructors affiliated with the Cluster ‘Ancient, Byzantine and Medieval Studies’ for the discussion of themes of common relevance. As a forum for regular meetings, it may also prepare the ground for further activities of the Cluster and its members.
The common theme to be explored this semester relates to the history of our respective disciplines and sub-disciplines (Forschungsgeschichte). What is the origin of the terminology we employ as ancient, Byzantine or medieval historians? Where do we draw the boundaries, chronologically, geographically? How has it changed over time? How has this affected the institutional contexts for our research (university departments, research centers, scholarly journals, funding opportunities)?

The Colloquium will meet every two weeks, for a total of six meetings.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Active participation in class discussion on the basis of the assigned readings (50%); oral presentation of own research (30%); two written assignments (reaction papers, book review, 20%).
Participation at each class meeting is mandatory. In cases of unavoidable absence, the instructors must be informed ahead of time.

UPDATE (12.i.21):

In the light of our move from f2f to online delivery, the assessment regime has been adjusted as follows to ensure best use of our in-class time:

(i) active participation and contribution to class –– 50%

(ii) an in-class presentation of your own PhD-level research project, reflecting its dependence on, and position in, the framework of periodisation and disciplinary boundaries –– 15%

(iii) a written portfolio submission (in a single PDF-file), comprising three distinctive elements (following a title page and a table of contents):
• a write-up of your research presentation of point (ii), above. Suggested length: 2,000 words –– 15%
• your reflective paper as was due for initial submission for session 4. Changes to the original submission are permitted –– 10%
• a comparative book review of two book-length introductions to your respective field of study, which originally must have been published within thirty years or more from one another. Suggested length: 2,000 words –– 10%
