Course Description

These courses are only for Lehramt students who began their studies before WS 2019/2020 and Angewandte students (see below for the exact modules). They replace the Academic Writing course.
The course covers advanced academic skills, including developing a thesis, and the necessary steps to investigate and write it up.

Adaptation & Appropriation
This course is interested not only in the adaptation of literature into film, but also of how different media (not just literature and film, but also theatre, video games, etc.) can be adapted in multiple directions. We will also examine the theoretical approaches to questions of adaptation and appropriation for how they aid and shape our understanding of the issues involved.

Comics & Graphic Novels
This EfAP course focuses on how to read comics and graphic novels. This the focus will be both on examining the conventions of the form and its genres, as well as developing tools for suitable analyses which go beyond a purely narrative understanding. Students are encouraged to work on texts which interest them.

  • The prescribed texts for the course are:
    • McCloud, Scott. Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art. William Morrow Paperbacks, 1994. ISBN: 978-0060976255
    • Moore, Alan and Dave Gibbons. Watchmen: International Edition. DC Comics, 2014. ISBN: 978-1401248192

Our Androids, Ourselves
Robots, androids, replicants, cyborgs, toasters –call them what you will, artificial life has been a part of literature and culture for centuries. This course will examine what these myths, stories, films and TV shows have to tell us about the nature of sentience and existence, and perhaps about what it means to be human.

Culinary Identities
In this course we will be examining the cultural significance of cooking and eating. Course topics will include the signification of foodways, food trends, and how identities are performed (and appropriated) through food, cooking and cuisine.
