Students will be evaluated on the required readings and on the material provided in class, which will be made available on Moodle. Each section of the course includes some basic readings (articles and/or book chapter) as well as other suggested readings that students can consult.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The final assessment will consist in a short essay (3000 words) on one of the topics discussed in class, based on a set of pre-given questions. The essay is worth 100 points, which take into consideration the understanding of main concepts (30 points), analytical skills (30 points), the ability to combine and engage with different topics (30 points), and clarity of exposition (10 points). A minimum of 60 points is necessary to pass the exam.
The total mark will thus be calculated: 90-100 points: 1; 80-89 points 2; 70-79 points: 3; 60-69 points: 4. 0-59 points: 5

Given the current uncertain situation, the final exam should be submitted via Moodle. There will be four fixed submission dates (one at the end of the winter semester and three in the following one) to upload the final exam. Such dates count as examination dates, so registration to your preferred date will be required via u:space.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The course will be held in English. No prior knowledge of specific terms or concepts is required, as they will be clarified and discussed in class.
