Voraussetzungen / Organisatorisches
1. Module Allocation:

All degrees requiring an introductory seminar for their basic module in literary studies (Basismodul Literaturwissenschaft):
  • BA Anglistik/Amerikanistik (seminar 6 or 8 ECTS)
  • BA Berufliche Bildung (seminar 6 ECTS)
  • BA Interdisziplinäre Mittelalterstudien/Medieval Studies (seminar 2 ECTS)
  • BSc. BWL (seminar 6 ECTS)
  • Lehramt GS/HS/MS/RS/GY (seminar 6 or 8 ECTS)
  • MA WiPäd (seminar 6 ECTS)

2. Prerequisites for obtaining credit points:
  • 6 ECTS: active participation in the seminar, course tutorial, library tutorial, final written exam
  • 8 ECTS (module exam): active participation in the seminar, course tutorial, library tutorial, final written exam (see additional information below!)

IMPORTANT: The following applies ONLY to students whose Basismodul Literaturwissenschaft contains BOTH the Introduction to Literary Studies and a lecture (see module handbook):

As of now, the final written exam of this Introduction to Literary Studies is also the module exam for the Basismodul Literaturwissenschaft. The exam will contain questions about both the content of the Introduction and the lecture (free choice: English or American Literature lecture). Students, therefore, are advised to take the introductory class either after attending the lecture OR in the same semester.

3. FlexNow-Registration:
  • Course (de)enrollment: April 06 – May 1st, 2021
  • ECTS (de)registration: June 1st – July 1st, 2021

Students enrolled for this class will be registered in the VC class by the instructor in the first week of the semester!

Guest auditors: please contact lecturer via e-mail.

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.
