Course Description

WS 10/11

(Iris-Aya Laemmerhirt; Christian Lenz)


Following the great success and splendid feedback of the two courses on British Horror and American Monsters, we propose another horrific experience: This Blockseminar is designed to give you an outlook on what it means to work scientifically. On five Saturdays, you will learn creative and academic writing which will culminate in a small conference at which you will present your papers – via the up-and-coming form of a Science Slam.

You will learn about theories of horror and monsters, the impacts and functions for society and how one can approach this “horrible” genre. As this course is taking place only on weekends, students are expected to do their own research and writings and present their findings/ output to the group.

Meeting on the weekends, you will be tutored not only by the lecturers but also by your fellow students and thus it requires active participation as well as the incentive to work autonomously. Do you dare the adventure?

As this is a project seminar, we can take only 20 participants in the “2. Studienphase”. Students who would like to participate should apply via email to christian.lenz@tu-dortmund.de.
