Inhalt:
Dieser Kurs richtet sich gezielt an Lehramtsstudierende, die sich auf das erste Staatsexamen in Amerikanischer Literatur vorbereiten. Studierende anderer Abschlüsse sind allerdings auch herzlich willkommen. Da die Staatsexamensprüfung auf Deutsch geschrieben, wird, ist die Unterrichtssprache des Repetitoriums ebenfalls Deutsch.

Das Repetitorium unterstützt Studierende in ihrer Vorbereitung auf die schriftliche Abschlussprüfung im ersten Staatsexamen. Neben allgemeinen Hinweisen zur schriftlichen Prüfung werden zentrale Inhalte der Literaturwissenschaft wiederholt und mithilfe potentieller Themen der schriftlichen Prüfung gemeinsam besprochen. Aktive Mitgestaltung der einzelnen Sitzungen ist absolut unerlässlich und wird gerne auch durch individuelle Konsultation unterstützt. Als Ergänzung zum Repetitorium wird der (ggf. erneute) Besuch der Vorlesung „American Literature“ von Prof. Dr. Christine Gerhardt empfohlen.

Die konkreten Übungen werden gemeinsam mit den Studierenden und somit entsprechend ihrer jeweiligen Schwerpunkte in der ersten Sitzung festgelegt. Sämtliches Material wird über den VC bereitgestellt.

Wichtig: Bitte beachten Sie, dass das Repetitorium für Amerikanische Literatur nur jeweils im Sommersemester angeboten wird.

Inhalt:
This course aims to assist students in writing their first term paper in literary or cultural studies in Bamberg. We will discuss general formal aspects and content related criteria of an academic paper, such as possible topics, structure, suitable theoretical approaches. Primarily, however, we will practice how to choose a topic, how to develop a coherent structure, how to involve theoretical frameworks, and how to adhere to the MLA citation rules. Finally, we will discuss the different types of source material that are suitable for the list of references of your paper. Students have the chance to present a provisional outline in a closed discussion forum, where they will receive feedback from fellow students and the instructor.

This course is also addressed at students who are writing their BA-thesis with Dr. Konopka (American Studies). Therefore, this course provides the guidance sessions for the BA thesis (Betreuungsübung) for students in the BA programs who write their thesis in literary or cultural studies. It assists students in the preparation of their final paper, and gives them an opportunity to discuss their work with other students. BA-candidates will present parts of their final paper, offering it for discussion and feedback. If you are planning to attend this class, make sure that the instructor will also be your thesis advisor. Please contact Dr. Konopka well in advance to discuss your topic and the requirements for the supervision.

Please note that this is a practical training course and not a lecture! Everyone is expected to participate in the tasks and discussions.

FIRST SESSION: April 20, 6 p.m. (sharp) on MS Teams (teams code will be provided via the VC)

Zur Kursdemo auf dem Virtuellen Campus: https://vc.uni-bamberg.de/course/view.php?id=27003
Inhalt:
This seminar is an internet-based survey course that offers students in the “Aufbaumodul Literaturwissenschaft” an overview of the main developments in US-American literary history. The class will help students to understand the links between literary periods, their central ideas, and important stylistic features. The course provides participants with detailed information about the complexities that underlie and connect each literary work and period. The course’s other main goal is to familiarize students with key texts and key discourses of US-American literature, such as race, class, and gender. The texts were chosen because they either represent crucial aspects of their respective literary periods, or because they address topics and concepts that were controversial at this particular point in history.

Despite being an E-Learning course, this is a discussion-based class, so active participation is crucial. Participants are required to contribute to class discussions by posting at least two quality responses per forum. Your learning process will be enabled through your active involvement in the different assignments, which are designed to allow you as much creative freedom as possible while assisting you in your reading and understanding of the poems, short stories, novels, and plays.
Empfohlene Literatur:
Most readings will be made available via the Learning Management System (VC/Moodle).
Two texts, however, need to be acquired by each participant individually:
  • Kate Chopin, The Awakening (1899)
  • Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five, or The Children’s Crusade: A Duty-Dance with Death (1969)

  • BA Anglistik/Amerikanistik (seminar 6 or 8 ECTS)
  • BA Berufliche Bildung (seminar 6 ECTS)

Additional Information: Students can choose between two Introductions to Literary Studies. Make sure to register only for one of the two courses, though! Both introductory courses prepare students for the analysis and interpretation of both English and American literature. The only difference is that the Introduction taught by the English Literature section (Course A) uses literary examples from a primarily British context, while the Introduction taught by the American Studies section (Course B) uses literary examples from the US and Canada. Choosing one or the other does not mean that you "specialize" in English or American literature. You can continue in either field in your advanced module!

Für Studienortwechsler, Erasmusstudenten sowie Studierende, die den Leistungsnachweis zur baldigen Prüfungsanmeldung benötigen, werden im begrenzten Umfang Plätze freigehalten. Bei Überbuchung des Seminars fällt die Entscheidung über die Teilnahme in Rücksprache mit der Dozentin.
Inhalt:
This course provides a concise introduction to major themes and methods in the study of English and American literature with a focus on American literature.

We will discuss key features of the main literary genres poetry, prose fiction, and drama, explore selected approaches in literary theory and criticism as a basis for analyzing and interpreting literary texts, and survey the main periods and developments of American literary history. The focus, however, will be on the discussion of textual examples from these various vantage points. The goal of this course is to enable you to articulate up-to-date readings of texts from different genres, in their cultural contexts, informed by key theories and analytical methods.

Please note that all Introductions to English and American Literary Studies prepare students for the analysis and interpretation of both English and American literature. The only difference is that the Introduction taught by members of the English Literature section uses literary examples from a primarily British context, and the one taught by members of the American Studies section uses primarily American examples. Choosing one or the other Introduction does not mean that you "specialize" in English or American literature, and you don't have to take your later courses in the same area.

Für Studienortwechsler, Erasmusstudenten sowie Studierende, die den Leistungsnachweis zur baldigen Prüfungsanmeldung benötigen, werden im begrenzten Umfang Plätze freigehalten. Bei Überbuchung der Lehrveranstaltung fällt die Entscheidung über die Teilnahme in Rücksprache mit der Dozentin.
Inhalt:
Some still believe that children's picture books and young adult (YA) novels are merely preparatory steps on a reader's path towards engaging with "serious" literature. In this class, however, we will investigate these two, often marginalized, literary genres in their own right, while also paying close attention to their current critical reception within the scholarly community.

Each of our primary texts finds unique, complex, and dynamic ways to engage its audience – regardless of the age of the individual reader. Using those classics of US-American and Canadian children's and YA literature as starting points, we will ultimately examine and discuss new ways of reading and interpreting literature. For this purpose, we will consult a new literary theory (almost) every week, in order to fully understand the complexity of YA novels and children's picture books published between the 1860s and the 1960s.

Attention: Participants of this class are strongly encouraged to finish (re-)reading the three YA novels before the beginning of the semester, since your weekly reading will consist of additional required reading including essays and articles - get ready for a rigorous reading list of feminist, deconstructionist, new historicist, and other literary criticism!
Empfohlene Literatur:
YA Fiction (to be read BEFORE the beginning of the semester!):
  • Louisa May Alcott, Little Women (1868)
  • Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885)
  • Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables (1906)
(You may want to get hold of critical editions of those books, for example via https://wwnorton.com/ >> Norton Critical Editions = highly recommended!)

Children's Books (to be read during the semester):
  • E.B. White, Charlotte's Web (1952)
  • Ezra Jack Keats, The Snowy Day (1962)
  • Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are (1963)
  • Eric Carle, The Very Hungry Caterpillar (1969)
(and possibly some more)
