Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
Final grade results from active participation in the class discussion, as well as the completion of written and oral assignments. To prepare the discussion, students will be asked to write regular summaries (Leseprotokollen), additionally to two short essays (Kurzessay), and will be trusted with the oral presentation/moderation of at least one session (details will be given during the first session). Summaries and essays can be written in either English, German or French, the oral presentation will, however, be held only in English.
Summaries should briefly comment the text while highlighting the principal arguments, and propose a question to the general discussion. Essays (1-2 pages max.) will propose an analysis of the text and can refer to the general literature. Important here is the critical reflexion, as well as the traceability of the arguments and the ability to draw parallels with other texts. It is not about knowing everything, rather to be able to contextualize and criticise and reflect upon a text.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
• Completion of the assigned homework (60%)
• Oral presentation of a session (20%)Please note: in case of insufficient participation in class discussion some extra written work may be required.
