3.02.495 TUT A closer look at the bigger picture – explorations around a survey lecture: K. Bogat

This course aims to give students the opportunity to reconsider key aspects of literary and cultural studies and their historical contexts. Additionally, it serves as a platform where students may reflect on their studies and enter into a dialogue with their fellow students.
The course will consist of a seven week lecture, accompanied by a tutorial course which will reflect and go beyond the lecture, allowing students to follow up individual aspects according to their own interests. The course therefore provides a space to talk about connections between concepts so as to develop a broader perspective. At the same time, students can review their academic work and benefit from the expertise of their fellow students in discussions about how to do research in certain fields.
The course consists of two parts:
• Part 1, a lecture: re-visiting the seven sessions of the lecture “Historical Background and Critical Concepts”
• Part 2, a tutorial: the tutorial sessions will consider the lectures but will allow students to focus more on their fields of interest while working out overall connections. The precise directions in which they wish to pursue their interests will be up to the participants. In the final part of the semester, once the lecture course is complete, the meetings of the tutorial will serve for reflecting on and developing the added insights and perspectives.
