Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

To learn about ten important themes in the Historiography of the Western and Central European Middle Ages (chosen for their relevance to what is actually researched at the University of Vienna). These include: Theology and Society; Gender and Women´s History; Crusades; the City; the Economy; Ethnicity and Nationalism ...

Assessment and permitted materials

Final exam (involving mainly but not only the writing of an abstract of an article, and replacing it in historiography). Each part is eliminatory. The course is unlikely to be passed without attending concurrently the twinned Lektürekurs taught by Professor Christina Lutter.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Both parts of the exam are eliminatory (you must reach half of the points)
30 points: explaining what are the contents of one of the mandatory readings (main theses, sources used by author).
70 points: an extended essay on an article or chapter, with a book-review component, engaging other course readings and the data provided by the lectures. The summary itself is worth 20 points; the bringing in of other readings 20 points; the bringing in of the lectures 30 points.
Grading scale:
0-50 -> 5; 51-62.5 -> 4, 63-75 -> 3; 75.5-87.5 -> 2; 88-100 -> 1

Examination topics

The readings posted on Moodle and the lectures posted on Moodle. One is unlikely to be able to get a passing grade or a good grade without these. The exam will be take-home in full or in part. The take-home part involves an essay on an article or chapter (one option will be a text in German, the other one in English), for which you will have a week (using the mandatory readings and the posted lectures). The second part (30 minutes on-line or on site) tests your having done the readings. You can write the exam in German, English, or French.

Reading list

Will be posted on Moodle. The lectures exist in recorded form and will be rerecorded, corona allowing.
