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 discussions of concepts and theoretical texts as well as their potential applications.

Inhalt/e

This class 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 / (Neo-)Marxism

Psychoanalytic Criticism

Post-structuralism,  Deconstruction  and Postmodernism

Feminist Criticism, Gender Studies and Queer Theory

Postcolonial Criticism and New Materialism

Narratology and Reader Response

Ecocriticism

Literatur

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

All other texts will be provided by the instructor.
