LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

Students will become familiar with the some of the most influential concepts and approaches in the history of literary and cultural theory. They will be enabled to identify and contextualize central ideas and learn to apply them to cultural texts.  Furthermore, they will have the opportunity to apply one of the discussed approaches to their own research and thesis project. 

Lehrmethodik

Lecture inputs, in-depth discussion of concepts and possible applications to cultural texts. Short presentations of thesis ideas and projects. 

Inhalt/e

This research forum provides students with an overview of some of the most important literary and cultural theories and their historical genesis from the liberal humanism of the 19th century to some of the most recent theoretical approches. We will critically engage with the central ideas and concepts of these various "isms" and discuss what can be gained from applying them to a cultural text within the framework of a seminar paper or thesis project. 

Among the approaches we will discuss are:

New Criticism, Formalism, and Structuralism

Social theories of literature

Psychoanalytic Criticism

Post-structuralism and Deconstruction 

Feminist Criticism, Gender Studies and Queer Theory

Postcolonial Criticism

Ecocriticism 

Psychoanalytic Criticism  and Cognitive Narratology

Literatur

Ingo Berensmeyer. 2014. Literary Theory: An Introduction to Approaches, Methods, and Terms. Klett Uniwissen. 

All other texts will be provided by the instructor.
