Geographically it will cover the cultural space ,Ashkenaz’, the German speaking parts of the Holy Roman Empire with Jewish population.
The learning units will consist of an introduction into the given source and the connected subject, followed by the joint reading of the texts prepared (put on moodle in advance). The critical analysis of the source will be based mainly on methods of cultural and gender studies, with assistence of remained material culture, pictures, and scientific literature. Practical objectives are the active participation in discussions, the good oral presentation of a self chosen topic, and the delivering of a paper based on good scientific practice.
