Lehrmethodik

 Instructor input, student-led discussions

Inhalt/e

At a minimum, this course will cover

  • short stories of US American authors;
  • theories of literary interpretation; and
  • literary themes and terminology.

A cursory introduction to the short story genre in the US will provide students with the minimal necessary background knowledge to understand and critically assess the texts discussed in class and issues raised in the texts, including (but not limited to) race, politics, language, gender, and sexuality. Students will be expected to read primary and secondary sources relating to these issues. 

Literatur

A course reader with the relevant short stories and secondary literature will be made available at the ÖH for purchase and provided on Moodle in the form of a PDF for free. Further materials will be provided on Moodle.
