Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course is intended to connect two topics often treated separately: political participation (with a special focus on elections) and protest. It is centred on the questions of which modes of interaction between the holders and the subjects of political power have occurred in European and North Atlantic history since the Middle Ages, and how it was negotiated which of these modes were considered permissible or forbidden for specific actors. The main regional focus is Central and Western Europe. In view of the breadth of the topic, a comprehensive treatment of all aspects and spaces cannot be attempted; the aim is a series of exemplary insights into key research questions and debates. Goals include understanding the contents of the selected texts, the comprehension and critical review of scholarly writing and the reading and discussion of sources. These will be practiced both orally and in writing. The reading material is partly in German and partly in English. A working knowledge of German is essential.

Assessment and permitted materials

Four times in the course of the term, written homework assignments dealing with the texts which have been read will be required. These assignments may be submitted in English if desired. Active participation during classes will be registered and factored into grades.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Minimum requirement for a passing grade is submitting at least three of the written assignments. Each assignment will contribute 20% to the final grade; the remaining 20% will be based on oral participation. Regular attendance is mandatory; two excused absences are permissible.

Examination topics

Correspond to the texts assigned for reading.

Reading list

A complete list of texts, as well as the texts themselves, will be made available via Moodle.
