3.02.043 SÜ Introduction to the Critical and Scholarly Discussion of Literature


  • Freitag: 12:00 - 14:00, wöchentlich


The aim of this seminar (S/Ü Introduction to the Critical and Scholarly Discussion of Literature) is to equip students with the expertise they need in order to begin to participate in the scholarly and critical discussion of literature. In the seminar, offered in nine parallel courses every winter term, students will acquire practical skills as well as historical and theoretical perspectives, and use them in critical discussion. For a more detailed outline and for information on how to gain credits, please refer to the description of the entire module.

Much of the reading and materials for the seminar will be provided in class or made available electronically (visit the wiki course page for further information). In addition you will need to purchase two books (and read them as soon as possible):

Shakespeare, William. A Midsummer Night's Dream. Ed. Sukanta Chaudhuri. The Arden Shakespeare Third Series. London et al.: Bloomsbury, 2017.

Wells, H.G. The Time Machine. Ed. Stephen Arata. New York and London: W. W. Norton, 2009.

A mandatory tutorial ("TUT Introduction to the Critical and Scholarly Discussion of Literature"; a.k.a.
"Research Methods") will also be offered in the winter term. In the tutorial, you must earn a 'pass'. Please note that some skills taught in the tutorial will also be tested in the written exam for the seminar.
