Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Based on selected texts – original sources and secundary literature – of Jewish historiography from antiquity to the present day, the most important authors – and a few women – are introduced and their works conveyed. The aim is to recognize and work out the concepts of history and narratives in the respective historical context.
The course uses methods of source-critical and hermeneutic text analysis, gender studies and cultural studies to analize German and English-language texts on the Jewish history of Central Europe from the Middle Ages to the present. The learning units will consist of an introduction and the joint reading of the texts prepared (put on Moodle in advance). The texts provided on Moodle are extracted in regular tasks.

Assessment and permitted materials

The monitoring is based on the active discussion of the prepared texts (distributed in advance). Altogether four papers of 5000 spaces on one of the provided articles have to be submitted on Moodle.
