Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Engaging critically with texts in (some of) their different forms; discussing linguistic and social aspects of (written) texts; analysing text concepts as well as specific situations, cotexts and contexts; producing texts and reflecting on the individual steps involved in the process; transcultural text analysis; standard and non-standard forms of creating written texts

Assessment and permitted materials

Please be aware that this is a ‘prüfungsimmanente Lehrveranstaltung’ and you will be graded based on your active participation in and contributions to the class over the course of the entire class. Work to do will be discussed in class (see also below).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Basic requirements: You need to be willing to participate in discussion, presentations and teamwork as well as hand in written assignments.

Your final grade is determined by four different areas of your work during the course of the semester according to the following key:

Active participation: 20%
Written submissions (‘homework’): 20%
Text project in the middle of the semester: 30%
Text project at the end of the semester: 30%

Details will be discussed in the first session and over the course of the semester. As part of the assignments, you will be asked to provide statements in which you discuss your thinking and work on a meta level. For these, what matters is that you demonstrate that you have understood the ideas discussed, have formed your own opinions about them based on the relevant research and your personal life experiences and can apply them in your own approach to texts and communication within the ethics of transcultural communication studies and related fields.

If you cannot attend a session, please let me know.

Examination topics

As this is an ‘Übung’, there is no separate exam for this class. For your participation and grading, everything discussed in class is relevant, including the selected literature.

Reading list

All relevant literature will be discussed in the group over the course of the semester and made available via Moodle; you do not need to read anything in preparation for this class.
