3.02.111 (Wed) Ü Written English: Writing about British Asian Cinema Wednesday: 08:00 - 10:00, weekly (from 21/10/20)

Description:
British Asian cinema has its roots in the Black politics of the 1960s and '70s when a new wave of politically active filmmakers began to use film to challenge racism and create greater awareness of issues facing their communities, such as poverty and social exclusion. British Asian films, in keeping with these roots, focus on the position of South-Asian communities in Britain, and on the complex experiences of second generation British Asians growing up with both cultures. Key issues are conforming to, or rejecting, aspects of both cultures, often centering on religion, “arranged marriage”, intergenerational conflict, gender expectations, sexuality and racism. This Written English course forms one half of the compulsory module ang311: Integrated Language Skills. The module is assessed via a portfolio and the assessment requirements are a take-home essay and an edited version of this essay. The grade will be added to the result from Spoken English. Homework assignments as required by the lecturer will count towards active participation.

3.02.400 (Tue) Ü Academic Discourse: Practical Translation Tuesday: 10:00 - 12:00, weekly (from 20/10/20)

Description:
“Practical translation” aims to heighten your awareness of the differences between German and English, and to enable you to circumnavigate common translation problems. We will begin by looking at common problems such as translating complex noun phrases, relative clauses, false friends, progressive / simple / perfective aspects as part of a topic-based unit on Government and Politics in the UK and USA. You will then be given the opportunity, in small groups, to select your own text to translate; fictional, political, scientific research, an abstract, a film review, marketing, tourism, which you will present in class for peer review. Practical translation thus focusses on fine-tuning your accuracy and use of idiomatic English as well as equipping you with the tools to edit and translate a variety of genres of text. The assessment is based on two in-class tests (one mid-semester and compulsory, and one optional for students needing 3 credit points at the end of the semester; both compulsory for students requiring 6 credit points), plus the group translation of the text you selected and an individual commentary. “Practical translation” aims to heighten your awareness of the differences between German and English, and to enable you to circumnavigate common translation problems.

3.02.101 (Fri) Ü Spoken English: Germany Through an Anglophone Lens Friday: 10:00 - 12:00, weekly (from 23/10/20)

Description:
“Admiration, antagonism & ambivalence” was what characterized British images of Germany before WWI according to the historian Richard Scully. This course explores representations of Germany, its people and its language, and how these images have changed historically. We will explore contexts such as Tatort, German citizenship classes, the World Cup, the German language according to Mark Twain, and stereotypes of Germany in the Anglophone press. The assessment requirement for this Spoken English course is a 15-20 minute oral language test at the end of the semester, with the grade to be added to the result from Written English. The oral test will take place via video conference. Podcasts will count towards active participation and will provide students with valuable language feedback. “Admiration, antagonism & ambivalence” was what characterized British images of Germany before WWI according to the historian Richard Scully.

3.02.151 S "Uncle Toms" No More: African-American Writers in Dialogue with Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin Tuesday: 10:00 - 12:00, weekly (from 20/10/20)

Description:
Ever since its first serial publication in 1851, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s "Uncle Tom’s Cabin" has been subject to controversial discussions. While the novel was highly popular among black and white abolitionists in the 19th century, issues of feminism, critical race theory, and religion have remained at odds and continue to occupy scholars, writers, and intellectuals - black and white, male and female. Important literary critical responses during the 19th and the 20th centuries have come from African American authors, who have addressed and re-worked Stowe’s novel from diverse vantage points and in different genres. This class focuses on selected literary responses by African American writers and intellectuals with a particular focus on the multidimensional and polysemic dialogues, which their revisions have opened up. Starting out from Stowe’s novel itself, we will study the 19th-century responses by Frederick Douglass and Frances Ellen Watkins Harper and the 20th-century postmodern re-workings by Ishmael Reed and Toni Morrison. Please purchase and read the Norton critical edition from 2018, edited by Elizabeth Ammons of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s "Uncle Tom’s Cabin" (1852). Also purchase and read Ismael Reed, "Flight to Canada" (1976) and Toni Morrison, "Beloved" (1987). Frederick Douglass’s novella “The Heroic Slave” (1853) and Frances Ellen Watkins Harper’s poem “Eliza Harris” (1853) can be accessed online at https://docsouth.unc.edu/neh/douglass1853/douglass1853.htmlhttps://docsouth.unc.edu/neh/douglass1853/douglass1853.html and https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/52447/eliza-harris respectively. Additional reading materials will be made available on Stud.IP at the beginning of the semester.

Description:
What is a 'cult' movie? A 'cult' TV show? A 'cult' novel? Today, it seems, these terms are employed so frequently and to such a wide variety of cultural artifacts that 'cult' has practically lost its meaning. Nevertheless, this seminar will examine what 'cult' means and how 'cult' is produced. In this seminar, we will thus broach questions such as: Why did C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien (in)famously organize Amanda McKittrick Ros reading competitions? Is Night of the Living Dead a cult movie? Is Grey's Anatomy a cult show? In what ways are they similar? In what ways are they different? Why is the term 'cult' so loosely used today? Who watches cult movies? Are cult audiences specific (sub-)cultures? What defines these (sub-)cultures? Why is it that specific genres (horror, sci-fi, fantasy) seem more prone toward cultification than other genres? Is there such a thing as a 'cult star'? After tackling a handful of introductory readings, we will jump into all things cult. While we will take some detours into literature, television, and comics, our main focus will be on film.

3.02.998 S Multiple Imaginations: Germany's Pasts and Presents Dates on Friday. 22.01.21 16:00 - 20:00, Saturday. 23.01.21 - Sunday. 24.01.21 10:00 - 19:00
Description:
In this seminar, we will work on different narratives about and representations of what is imagined – in different times and under different (political, social, economic) circumstances – as ‘Germany’. We will explore what ‘Germany’ supposedly is and gain a deeper understanding of it. With a cultural studies perspective we will look at what and who is represented by whom as ‘German(y)’, who and what is excluded by the narratives, what the specific circumstances for specific narratives are, and which counter-narratives can be found. The aim of the seminar is not to study what is called ‘Germany’ or ‘Europe’ but to learn about representation and perspectives of (multiple) self-imaginations, how they are constructed in different narratives and which functions these imaginations serve. In the context of this seminar, we do a joint study trip to the Auswandererhaus in Bremerhaven to explore different narratives and representations about Germany’s past and present. With a selection of texts and short films we will examine issues of exclusion and inclusion, and their implications.

3.02.482 S Teaching Literature in the EFL Classroom Wednesday: 10:00 - 12:00, weekly (from 21/10/20)

Description:
Teaching literature in the EFL Classroom Amongst the current generation of teaching professionals, the question whether literature – both with a capital and a small `l´- should be used in the EFL classroom is usually answered with a resounding “yes!”. For years critics of the competence-based approach have been calling for literature to be re-established as a means of fostering an education that goes beyond a mere acquisition of a certain skill set. In our digital age the number of literary texts available online as well as the products emerging from the communication between readers, texts and authors open up new types of literary discourse and expression transcending age, nationality and educational background. On the other hand, future teachers of English are bound to come across restrictions regarding their choice of literary works as well as the topics connected to them. German Abitur exams in particular require close scrutiny of the curriculum. Set texts and a variety of linguistic and analytical skills will be required to meet the assessment standards stipulated by the Ministry of Education. From primary school through to the final years of secondary school and Abitur-level both extensive reading of literary texts as well as reading with a view of composing a piece of writing are expected to be fostered systematically. The seminar aims at providing an overview of different literary texts, approaches and methods viable in the EFL classroom. Starting with visualisation techniques, story telling, scenic interpretation and creative writing participants are expected to get actively involved in classes by creating their own literary products and exchanging ideas about the viability of different didactic approaches. Other than that, everyone will be required to provide short keynote presentations on a selection of topics connected to teaching literature. You can put your name down for topics from the second week of term. Against the backdrop of current research in Didactics, participants are expected to analyse teaching and learning materials as well as (excerpts from) current textbooks for various age groups. Different approaches towards teaching literature will be explored. The development of units of work and lesson plans will be informed by relevant theories of language learning and teaching and can be critically applied to a selection of tasks, resources and ideas for projects connected to teaching literature. Lesson planning and the analysis of lessons involves • realistic target setting, • allowing for differentiation, • an appropriate choice of materials and media • as well as devising appropriate assessment strategies. Schemes of work submitted by students will be put under close scrutiny by peers and the lecturer in order to determine their viability in the classroom. Ideally, concepts and strategies will be put into practice during subsequent internships. As regards the submission of coursework as part of your final assessment, all participants are required to hand in a portfolio showing their ability to plan and reflect on lessons and schemes of work or tasks.

Description:
The central topic of this seminar is to investigate language change. We will discuss roughly 1500 years focussing on periods that have conventionally been classified as "turning-points" in the linguistic history of the English language. Our inquiry will encompass processes of language internal change as well as the external influence as a result of language contact. The seminar itself will be presented as a downloadable podcast plus ppt-presentation, meaning that there is no weekly live session. However, we will meet a few times to clarify organizational matters and/or any questions that come up. The central topic of this seminar is to investigate language change.

3.02.502 Ü Vorbereitung auf das Fachpraktikum Englisch (Gym) Tuesday: 08:00 - 10:00, weekly (from 20/10/20)

Description:
Making the most of your field experience. Having successfully mastered your initial pedagogical internship (“Allgemeines Schulpraktikum”), the next step is a subject-specific programme for future teachers of English. You will focus on the necessities of the syllabus but also on recognised standards, e.g. the Common European Framework and educational standards established across Germany (“Bildungsstandards”). The course is designed to help you make the transition from your university-based view on teaching to actually mastering the complex role of a classroom practitioner. Since your internship is likely to take place in Lower Saxony, the most recent version of the Core Curriculum (2016) will be explored and applied to the planning process of units of work and individual lessons. Participants are expected to critically analyse and develop complex tasks but also come up with short exercises and practice sessions as a means to foster language learning. Different teaching resources and textbooks will be studied against the backdrop of scientific insights into the subject. Lesson planning and creating units of work will be an integral part of the preparation for the upcoming field experience. A critical reflection of English lessons observed and taught during the initial pedagogical internship will serve as a basis for reflective lesson planning. A hands-on approach to developing key professional skills therefore involves • preparing and planning lessons and units of work, • realistic target setting • administrative skills such as reporting and recording, • assessment / testing and • planning for differentiation. By the end of the course you should be familiar with key requirements of lesson planning and teaching as well as the underlying principles of language learning.

Description:
“I may not know much but I do know that Europeans love Americans.” This is what Peter Parker’s sidekick Ned tells him as they set off on their school trip to Europe in the new "Spider-Man: Far from Home" movie (2019). This is just one example of a common trope in US-American film: the trip to Europe. Some US-American TV series also dedicate special “vacation episodes” to certain cities in Europe (e.g. "Friends," "Parks and Recreation," or "How I Met Your Mother"). In each of these cases, a certain notion of Europe, European cities, and Europeans is constructed. These notions often times include stereotypes, myths, and romantic ideas, e.g., sexual freedom, cheap alcohol, and old castles. No matter how different the films and TV series are, each of these representations reproduces but also constructs an idea of Europe, certain parts of Europe, and the people who live there. In the seminar, we will have a look at different representations of Europe in film and TV. With a representation-critical approach and the methodological toolkit of film analysis, global perspectives of Europe or parts of Europe and what it means to be European will be examined and analyzed. Guiding questions will be inter alia: - How is Europe represented? - Which filmic devices are employed to construct or support a certain notion of Europe? - What is represented/suggested/identified as (stereo)typical European? - Which voices are heard, which are not? What is made visible and what remains invisible? The course is primarily geared towards international exchange students participating in the "European Studies in Global Perspectives" program, but it is also open to University of Oldenburg students. “I may not know much but I do know that Europeans love Americans.” This is what Peter Parker’s sidekick Ned tells him as they set off on their school trip to Europe in the new "Spider-Man: Far from Home" movie (2019).

3.02.120 S American Poetry Since 1945: Politics, Culture, Signification Wednesday: 12:00 - 14:00, weekly (from 21/10/20)

Description:
Following Jennifer Ashton’s Cambridge Companion to American Poetry Since 1945 (Cambridge UP, 2013), this seminar contemplates the following questions: How is the meaning of poetry constructed, in the aftermath of modernity and modernism? How do poems seek to represent persons, groups of people, or parts of society? How to determine the relationship between the materiality of poetic language and that of the reality depicted? Finally, what is the relationship between content and form in American poetry and its cultures and subcultures after, and thus since, the Second World War? The participants of the seminar will come to understand the dynamics of Late Modernism and Objectivism (including Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, and Louis Zukofsky), of the poets of Black Mountain College and the Black Arts movement (incl. Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, Leroi Jones/Amiri Baraka), of the New York School, the Confessional Poets and the Beats (incl. Frank O’Hara, Robert Lowell, Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, Allen Ginsberg, as well as the song lyrics of Bob Dylan and other singer songwriters), ecopoetics, feminist poetics, and Language writing (incl. A. R. Ammons, Gary Snyder, Audre Lorde, Susan Howe, and Charles Bernstein), and the new(er) forms of poetic practice—spoken word and Hip Hop poetics (incl. Nas, Foxy Brown, Kanye West, and Kendrick Lamar)—that are contemporaneous with both late twentieth-century and early twenty-first century verse. Along the lines of the questions raised above, the seminar emphasizes in particular (1) the politics of the literary canon, from the perspective of poetry and poetics; (2) the relation between culture and subculture, as it pertains to poetic expression and lifestyle; and (3) the intricacies of linguistic and semiotic structures and dynamics, in and for poetic innovation. Aside from some additional poems, lyrics, and selected chapters from Ashton’s Cambridge Companion, which will be made available at the start of the semester, the following anthology needs to be purchased by the seminar’s participants: - Rita Dove, ed., The Penguin Anthology of Twentieth-Century American Poetry Following Jennifer Ashton’s Cambridge Companion to American Poetry Since 1945 (Cambridge UP, 2013), this seminar contemplates the following questions: How is the meaning of poetry constructed, in the aftermath of modernity and modernism?

Description:
Starting out with a definition of diversity and the application of diversity education in different contexts, this class aims at exploring different manifestations of the term both at school and classroom level. Using the PISA results in 2001 as a starting point, national, European and multicultural values will be regarded against the backdrop of educational policies. A postcolonial perspective and the phenomenon of globalisation contribute to a more complex grasp the issues at hand. Looking at the situation in countries such as the UK or the US, home and school languages will be contrasted. A special focus on EAL (English as an additional language) and bilingual upbringing add to the topic of linguistic diversity. As a next step, language diversity in education will be examined as a broader term and then specified as “translanguaging across the bilingual continuum” (Ofelia García). Language policies as a political statement will be an important point of discussion and possibly contention. This will also include the idea (or ideology?) of the native speaker ideal, which will be deconstructed but also regarded as a powerful influence on TESOL discourse and teaching traditions. Finally, the concept of language-sensitive teaching and its impact on the TESOL classroom will be put under scrutiny. Participants are encouraged to contribute more examples of diversity to our discourse in class. Heteronormativity, e.g. as reflected in text books, could be a starting point for a critical discussion of the state of affairs in German schools. How can equality, diversity and inclusion actually be put into practice? What are practical tools for pluralistic approaches in TESOL classes? The idea of an inclusive classroom in Lower Saxony and its curricular manifestations will be amended by examples of other institutions, e.g. the British Council. In this context, different documents, concepts, resources and interviews with practitioners will be studied and critically reflected upon. One particular displacement story will serve as a starting point to ask how literary learning can contribute to a more diverse approach towards TESOL teaching. The course finishes by focusing on the question how differentiation can foster learning in the TESOL classroom. The concept of differentiation will be examined from a variety of angles and examples from teaching materials and textbooks serve as an opportunity to practise one`s analytical skills. Scaffolding is another important term participants need to be familiar with. Relevant references in the field will have to be studied in order to prepare for the final assessment. Assessment issues: Participants are expected to -contribute to discourse during class. -provide samples of their work. -pass an end-of-term test (written assessment / “E-Klausur”) Starting out with a definition of diversity and the application of diversity education in different contexts, this class aims at exploring different manifestations of the term both at school and classroom level.

3.02.150 S "Uncle Toms" No More: African-American Writers in Dialogue with Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin Tuesday: 16:00 - 18:00, weekly (from 20/10/20)

Description:
Ever since its first serial publication in 1851, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s "Uncle Tom’s Cabin" has been subject to controversial discussions. While the novel was highly popular among black and white abolitionists in the 19th century, issues of feminism, critical race theory, and religion have remained at odds and continue to occupy scholars, writers, and intellectuals - black and white, male and female. Important literary critical responses during the 19th and the 20th centuries have come from African American authors, who have addressed and re-worked Stowe’s novel from diverse vantage points and in different genres. This class focuses on selected literary responses by African American writers and intellectuals with a particular focus on the multidimensional and polysemic dialogues, which their revisions have opened up. Starting out from Stowe’s novel itself, we will study the 19th-century responses by Frederick Douglass and Frances Ellen Watkins Harper and the 20th-century postmodern re-workings by Ishmael Reed and Toni Morrison. Please purchase and read the Norton critical edition from 2018, edited by Elizabeth Ammons of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s "Uncle Tom’s Cabin" (1852). Also purchase and read Ismael Reed, "Flight to Canada" (1976) and Toni Morrison, "Beloved" (1987). Frederick Douglass’s novella “The Heroic Slave” (1853) and Frances Ellen Watkins Harper’s poem “Eliza Harris” (1853) can be accessed online at https://docsouth.unc.edu/neh/douglass1853/douglass1853.htmlhttps://docsouth.unc.edu/neh/douglass1853/douglass1853.html and https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/52447/eliza-harris respectively. Additional reading materials will be made available on Stud.IP at the beginning of the semester.

3.02.172 S The History of English: Old English Wednesday: 18:00 - 20:00, weekly (from 21/10/20)

Description:
“Hwæt sceolan we drinkan?”, what looks like an odd mixture of English and German is actually correct English – just more or less 1300 years old. One can still rather easily recognize the interrogative pronoun “what” only that the “hw” is nowadays reversed. “Sceolan” is probably a little hard to decipher at first glance, however at least for German natives it should – especially in combination with the last word of the question – be quickly identifiable as the equivalent to Modern English “shall” (or sollen – in OE the “sc” was pronounced as “sh”). The fellow who phrased this particular question therefore spoke perfect (Old) English, and yet how come that it looks more like a heavy German dialect than proper English? This issue will be one of the leading questions for this seminar. Where did the English language come from? Why is it even called English? Where did the languages before English go? Was there something like an “Old English period”? To answer those (and other questions) a period of language history lasting around 800 years will be examined. The focus will thereby not only lay with understanding the basics of Old English spelling, phonology and surface structure, but also in identifying key concepts of language contact and language change and how they have left traces within the everyday language we use. “Hwæt sceolan we drinkan?”, what looks like an odd mixture of English and German is actually correct English – just more or less 1300 years old.

Description:
“Admiration, antagonism & ambivalence” was what characterized British images of Germany before WWI according to the historian Richard Scully. This course explores representations of Germany, its people and its language, and how these images have changed historically. We will explore contexts such as Tatort, German citizenship classes, the World Cup, the German language according to Mark Twain, and stereotypes of Germany in the Anglophone press. The assessment requirement for this Spoken English course is a 15-20 minute oral language test at the end of the semester, with the grade to be added to the result from Written English. The oral test will take place via video conference. Podcasts will count towards active participation and will provide students with valuable language feedback. “Admiration, antagonism & ambivalence” was what characterized British images of Germany before WWI according to the historian Richard Scully.

3.02.191 S The Plurilingual Classroom Monday: 08:00 - 10:00, weekly (from 19/10/20)

Description:
Starting with (pre-service) teachers` individual language learning histories, the module is designed to explore the transition from conventional monolingual approaches towards a more flexible, plurilingual classroom practice. Identifying relevant models of intercultural communication, e.g. Byram (1997), influential research in the field of translanguaging, e.g. García (2009, 2017) and documents published by the European Council, pre- and in-service teachers are expected to use self-directed learning as a prerequisite for a thorough comprehension of topics in the field in order to display a sophisticated level of academic discourse in plenary sessions. The idea of a “flipped classroom” can be employed in order to facilitate pair and group work later on, i.e. when working on specific products. The whole course is designed to be process- and product-orientated. Hence, pre-service teachers are asked to share details of their learning process by uploading notes and comments to StudIP. While all participants are required to study all the reference mentioned in the teaching unit in order to reach the same standard of theoretical preparation, there is more choice when it comes to case studies and materials from classroom practice. Due to the complexity of the field, it is crucial to focus on a limited number of aspects connected to the plurilingual approach, while raising awareness for current research and influential documents such as the CEFR, FREPA, etc. In order to encourage interaction and collaboration among (future) FL teachers, tasks are designed to yield products such as infographics or (TED-talk style) presentations. Equipped with a sound basis of knowledge about plurilingual practices, higher thinking skills are encouraged in order to enable (future) teacher practitioners to quickly evaluate and adapt content. Therefore, command words such as “examine”, “evaluate” and “assess” frequently feature in the tasks chosen, particularly regarding essay and research questions. Upon the completion of the module, you will be (able to): -reflect on your own language learning histories using tools such as the ELP. -identify and assess resources designed to reflect and monitor your language learning development and the acquisition of plurilingual and pluricultural competence. -identify and describe innovative features of the CEFR (2001) and assess the significance of the document for the establishment of pluricultural practices. -display your findings in infographics. -name and evaluate the implications for teachers in their TESOL classroom practice. -consider advantages and disadvantages of translanguaging (and code-switching) in FL teaching. -identify and describe recent trends and developments in language learning, e.g. diversity education. -distinguish between bilingualism, multilingualism and plurilingualism. -critically assess the role of the native speaker ideal and its impact in FL teaching. -assess the CEFR Companion Volume`s significance for the development of plurilingual approaches. -define the term “Translanguaging Corriente” (Garcia 2013) and critically analyse its potential for a plurilingual classroom. -be aware of the interdependence between students` translanguaging performance and teachers` adaptive “Translanguaging Pedagogy” (García et al. 2017: 25). -grasp the differences between a conventional monolingual classroom and e.g. García`s ideas (2013, 2019) of “The Translanguaging Classroom”. -compare various classroom practices as reflected in lesson plans in order to become aware of the implications of translanguaging for classroom practitioners. Assessment issues: Participants are expected to -contribute to discourse during class. -provide samples of their work. -pass an end-of-term test (written assessment / “E-Klausur”) Starting with (pre-service) teachers` individual language learning histories, the module is designed to explore the transition from conventional monolingual approaches towards a more flexible, plurilingual classroom practice.

Description:
The central topic of this seminar is to investigate language change. We will discuss roughly 1500 years focussing on periods that have conventionally been classified as "turning-points" in the linguistic history of the English language. Our inquiry will encompass processes of language internal change as well as the external influence as a result of language contact. The seminar itself will be presented as a downloadable podcast plus ppt-presentation, meaning that there is no weekly live session. However, we will meet a few times to clarify organizational matters and/or any questions that come up. The central topic of this seminar is to investigate language change.

3.02.112 (Mon) Ü Written English: Writing about British Asian Cinema Monday: 08:00 - 10:00, weekly (from 19/10/20)

Description:
British Asian cinema has its roots in the Black politics of the 1960s and '70s when a new wave of politically active filmmakers began to use film to challenge racism and create greater awareness of issues facing their communities, such as poverty and social exclusion. British Asian films, in keeping with these roots, focus on the position of South-Asian communities in Britain, and on the complex experiences of second generation British Asians growing up with both cultures. Key issues are conforming to, or rejecting, aspects of both cultures, often centering on religion, “arranged marriage”, intergenerational conflict, gender expectations, sexuality and racism. This Written English course forms one half of the compulsory module ang311: Integrated Language Skills. The module is assessed via a portfolio and the assessment requirements are a take-home essay and an edited version of this essay. The grade will be added to the result from Spoken English. Homework assignments as required by the lecturer will count towards active participation.

Description:
How can we convey meaning to a hearer successfully? How can a hearer understand what a speaker means? This course aims to provide the students with a holistic understanding of the differences between meaning in and out of context. Therefore, we are going to investigate the elusive line between semantics and pragmatics. Although this course introduces pragmatic theories, it nevertheless relies on practical examples of spoken language to show which areas of natural language these theories describe. In other words: The theories introduced in this course are all applicable to communicative situations we all are familiar with. How can we convey meaning to a hearer successfully?

Description:
Making the most of your field experience. Having successfully mastered your initial pedagogical internship (“Allgemeines Schulpraktikum”), the next step is a subject-specific programme for future teachers of English. You will focus on the necessities of the syllabus but also on recognised standards, e.g. the Common European Framework and educational standards established across Germany (“Bildungsstandards”). The course is designed to help you make the transition from your university-based view on teaching to actually mastering the complex role of a classroom practitioner. Since your internship is likely to take place in Lower Saxony, the most recent version of the Core Curriculum (2016) will be explored and applied to the planning process of units of work and individual lessons. Participants are expected to critically analyse and develop complex tasks but also come up with short exercises and practice sessions as a means to foster language learning. Different teaching resources and textbooks will be studied against the backdrop of scientific insights into the subject. Lesson planning and creating units of work will be an integral part of the preparation for the upcoming field experience. A critical reflection of English lessons observed and taught during the initial pedagogical internship will serve as a basis for reflective lesson planning. A hands-on approach to developing key professional skills therefore involves • preparing and planning lessons and units of work, • realistic target setting • administrative skills such as reporting and recording, • assessment / testing and • planning for differentiation. By the end of the course you should be familiar with key requirements of lesson planning and teaching as well as the underlying principles of language learning.

3.02.990 S Little Women Through the Ages: Film Adaptations of Louisa May Alcott's Classic Children's Story Tuesday: 12:00 - 14:00, weekly (from 20/10/20)

Description:
Greta Gerwig’s 2019 film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s "Little Women" (1868) is the latest of numerous adaptations for the theater, television, and film. Indeed, the novel’s many cross-medial adaptations have not only contributed to the continuing appeal of the 19th-century children’s classic, each of them has also provided its very own interpretation and added yet another layer of meaning to the 19th-century novel. Alongside our study of Alcott’s children’s classic itself, this class focuses on the four feature films from 1933, 1949, 1994, and 2019. The course aims to familiarize students with central theoretical aspects of the adaptation of novels into films in order to develop an understanding of the specific variation, accentuation, and interpretation, which each of these film adaptations has produced under changing cultural, historical, and cinematic contexts. Please purchase and read Louisa May Alcott’s "Little Women" (1868) [part I & II] - preferably the Norton critical edition from 2004, edited by Anne K. Phillips and Gregory Eiselein. Furthermore, please purchase and watch the 1994 film versions directed by Gillian Armstrong and Greta Gerwig’s 2019 version. The 1933 adaptation with Katharine Hepburn, directed by George Cukor and Mervyn Leroy’s 1949 feature film can be accessed at https://archive.org/details/LittleWomen1933 and https://archive.org/details/LittleWomen1949 respectively. Additional reading materials will be made available on Stud.IP at the beginning of the semester.

Situated along England's largest bay, the Wash, and stretching into Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire, the Fen Country and its flat, coastal marshland have thus been prone to literary and cultural landscape constructions that highlight often uncanny notions of the in-between – where nothing is ever stable or permanent and where narratives have been fabricated to resist the constant flux of growth and decay, becoming and passing, even as they succumb to it. As a consequence, the Fens as well as other wetland regions of East Anglia have traditionally inspired three supposedly very different genre traditions: nature writing, the ghost story, and historiographic metafiction. The literary interaction between these genres, however, has shaped the idea of the Fens as a haunted country for a long time and moreover, it continues to produce ever new varieties of this regional literature, among them stories of the weird, the English eerie, new folk horror, or memoirs in which the identities of people and places are in fact inextricably intertwined.

3.02.152 S Black Lives and the History of Science in Recent Anglophone Fiction Tuesday: 14:00 - 16:00, weekly (from 03/11/20)

Description:
Science and the history of science have traditionally been seen by many as a predominantly (male white) European phenomenon. Over the past few decades, this image has been challenged in numerous ways. Recent Anglophone fiction has produced a number of stories about the roles and contributions which slaves and colonised subjects made to scientific inventions and discoveries, but also about the conditions and injustices that they suffered in the process, and which prevented their achievements from being recognised. In our course, we will closely analyse and discuss two such novels: Ezi Edugyan, Washington Black (2018) Petina Gappah, Out of Darkness, Shining Light (2019) Set respectively in Southeastern Africa and in the Caribbean, North America and the Arctic, and with London and the British Empire as constant points of reference, these are two moving and exciting stories, which invite us also to engage with historical connections between Science, Exploration, Colonisation and the Slave Trade. These analyses will be framed by engagements with historical backgrounds and critical approaches (such as postcolonial science studies). One of the authors, Petina Gappah, is scheduled to come to Oldenburg for an international conference in May 2021, so participants will have a chance to encounter the author of one of the texts we will be analysing in the course. Prüfungsform: The standard prescribed format for this course is „Referat mit schriftlicher Ausarbeitung“. Participants requiring credits for this course under particular circumstances should contact me for alternatives. Course Requirements: Active participation (including, but not limited to an oral presentation) and a term paper of ca. 10 pp. based on the topic of the presentation (deadline March 15, 2021). Alternatives / special circumstances to be discussed with the course leader.

3.02.175 V Methods in Language Use, Variation and Change Thursday: 14:00 - 15:00, weekly (from 22/10/20), The lectures will be uploaded for download as a video file. This course is mostly taught asychronously.

Description:
The lecture “Methods in Language Variation and Change” accompanies one of the linguistic seminars in ang617/ang618 and is meant for students registered for these courses to develop basic methodological skills in the topic areas of language variation and change. Unlike many other disciplines in the humanities, linguistics has a very empirical research tradition. To get the data needed for empirical research, there are various methods of data collection which all come with a number of limitations and advantages. In this course, we will introduce and evaluate different methods of data collection, making you familiar with the advantages and disadvantages of them all and discuss critically the suitability for your research questions. In the lecture, we will guide students to develop different methodological skills and competences, such as: - the ability to formulate a valid (and manageable) research question - the ability to choose the appropriate approach to answering this research question (i.e. e.g. qualitative vs. quantitative research) - the ability to choose the appropriate method(s) of data collection to answer this question - the ability to choose the appropriate participants/ language corpus to answer this question - the ability to analyse the data - the ability to choose and present relevant results - the ability to structure linguistic papers - etc. The course is meant to give you a hands-on experience in working empirically yourself – from developing a research question to analysing and presenting your data. Therefore, the teaching methods in this course will vary from regular lectures in the first part to (individual) counselling and consultation about your own projects (be it posters, term papers or other kinds of examination). Students who registered for one of the linguistic seminars in ang617 also need to register for this lecture.

3.02.077 (Wed) Ü Introduction to Integrated Language Studies Wednesday: 12:15 - 13:45, weekly (from 21/10/20)

Description:
The course "Introduction to Integrated Language Studies" provides an introduction to the practical study of the English language at university level. Class work will include practical language sessions, written homework items, a referenced essay, and a set of electronic grammar assignments to be completed throughout the semester. Students will be given the opportunity to develop both their receptive and productive language skills. This will involve listening practice (including many varieties of English); reading and writing (covering a variety of genres relevant for university work); and speaking, with special emphasis on communicative effectiveness and academic register. The homework and class exercises will also lead to a diagnostic evaluation of English proficiency and advice for further self-study. Assessment for the course is via a portfolio on a pass-fail basis. You must pass all the portfolio items in order to pass the course. Materials for the course will be provided via Stud.IP, and students will be given suggestions for grammar reference works and dictionaries at the start of the semester. * * * LANGUAGE AIMS During the course, students will work towards achieving the following advanced-level competencies according to the Common European Framework of Reference: Listening -Understanding extended speech, lectures and news reports, even those containing complex lines of argument, in both standard dialects and other varieties of English. Reading -Understanding long and complex factual and literary texts; appreciating distinctions of style. Writing -Expressing ideas in clear, well-structured text; expressing points of view on complex subjects at some length with a(n academic) style appropriate to the reader. Speaking -Expressing ideas, accounting for and sustaining opinions and taking an active part in discussions fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. (Note that speaking plays a larger role in the second half of the course.)

3.02.140 S Colonial Gothic Friday: 10:00 - 12:00, weekly (from 23/10/20)

Description:
“The colonies” held an ambivalent fascination for imperial England: on the one hand, they promised a space of exotic adventure where young Englishmen could prove their mettle. But the romance of colonial adventure could just as easily turn into gothic horror: colonial space was also a source of anxiety, a place where death, madness, and unspeakable terror awaited the English adventurer. Often the gothic threat is overcome by the superiority of English courage, reason, and loyalty to the crown – yet there is also the creeping dread that the unspeakable horrors of the colony could overcome Western rationality and corrupt the imperial hero – and maybe even take over the imperial capital itself. And while the British Empire is gone, colonial gothic horror continues to attract audiences even today – as contemporary neo-Victorian TV shows like Frontier, The Terror, and Taboo demonstrate. In the seminar, we will look at champions of the British Empire, such as H. Rider Haggard and Rudyard Kipling, as well as at critics like Joseph Conrad and how they used the colonial gothic, and we will also investigate its role in white settler writing in Australia and Canada. A few examples of contemporary postcolonial and neo-Victorian appropriations of the colonial gothic will round out our discussion. Seminar discussions will be held exclusively via BigBlueBotton. Please buy and read: - H. Rider Haggard: She (preferred edition: Penguin Classics, ISBN 978-0140437638) - Joseph Conrad: Heart of Darkness (preferred editions: WW Norton, ISBN 978-0393264869 or Oxford University Press ISBN 978-0199536016) Other material will be available on StudIP. “The colonies” held an ambivalent fascination for imperial England: on the one hand, they promised a space of exotic adventure where young Englishmen could prove their mettle.
