Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Class Content:
This seminar is the best, it’s the greatest. It’s true. All other classes are losers. So sad!

Goals:
Ability to conduct differentiated and independent analysis on models of historiography, and to connect learned content to larger current and historical theories in relation to Social and Cultural Sciences at large. Critical examination of one’s own positionality. Improvement of academic skills in preparation of the MA thesis (developing theses, source approach, contexts)

Methods:
Analyses of narratives of history as mythical and fictional constructs, application of history models to contexts of cultural history and politics. Connecting current and older models of history design, addressing issues of methodology.
Reading, debate, analysis of (historical and current) case studies (both in small groups and within the full class group) tasks for written reflection (one-person setting).

Assessment and permitted materials

There are 3 separate exam sections to pass:
1) Seminar paper (12-15 Seiten) or creative paper (33,3%)
2) oral presentation/moderation/work within small group tasks and specific task settings like reading journals (33,3%)
3) attendance and participation in debate and analysis, participation in peer feedback (33,3%)

In agreement with the class, these exam sections are subject to change (e.g. if the group turns out to be very small/very big, or depending on the knowledge/experience level of the group).
If you have a condition that adversely affects these exams (dyslexia, phobias), please contact the teacher to discuss the possibility of an alternative exam.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

All three exam sections need to be obtain a positive mark (=a minimum of a 4) to pass the class.
The willingness to read (both English and German texts) and to engage in debate is required.
Attendance is mandatary. You are, however, adults. Just don’t miss class more than three times and give notice beforehand (via email) when you will be missing a class.

Examination topics

Required reading, positions debated and presented in class, connections to broader contexts

Reading list
