Course Description & Requirements

MA LABG 2009/2016 & MA Angewandt only

The Masterclass is intended to give students the opportunity to practise and improve their language through a variety of different topics and areas.

  • Marvel Villains
    • Do you want to explore the darker side of the Marvel Universe? Then this is the class for you. We will explore the many facets of the genre, be it in literature or film. For successful completion of the class, you will be required to actively participate in class, hold a presentation of a topic of your choice and hand in an item of written work giving more detail on your topic.
  • Tech Noir
    • The seminar explores movies which fuse science fiction motifs with noirish, dystopian or horror elements to create texts which focus on anxieties and fears surrounding life in a technological society. Possible choices of movies might include: Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1926), Ridley Scott's Alien (1979), David Cronenberg's The Fly (1986), Steven Spielberg's Minority Report (2003). Students will be expected to present their choice of film in class and to write a short essay (2000 words) about it.
  • Back to the Future: Writing Time Travel Stories
    • Have you ever wanted to go back in time and fix a mistake? Or fancy travelling to the distant future (if there is one)? This semester we’ll be focusing on the problems and paradoxes of time travel. This course will provide students with the opportunity to use their language in a different, non-academic context. We will work on creative writing in a variety of forms and styles. Students will be expected to complete regular coursework and submit one project piece of 3000 words for assessment.
  • Theater in the Classroom
    • “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players.” This course will not only cover a wide range of genres in theater in regard to theory, but also in regard to practice. We will read, watch, write, and act theater pieces in order to better understand the subject and explore options for classroom application, all while showcasing and refining our English skills. Although prior experience isn’t necessary, an interest in the topic and willingness to do some acting is preferred.
  • Fantasy
    • This seminar explores the perennial fascination of fantasy worlds. Immersing oneself in fantasy texts offers escapism in the form of experiencing adventure in societies distant in time and space. We will be looking at psychological and sociological approaches to the attraction of this absorbing experience. We will be mainly looking at fantasy as a film genre, but literary lexts are not excluded. Potential films will include versions of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, as well as versions of modern fantasies such as J.K. Rowlings's Harry Potter series or Lev Grossman's The Magicians. Students will be expected to present the film or literary text of their choice in class and to write a short essay (2000 words) about it.
