Course Description

In our modern times one would have thought that we do not need others to take care of us anymore. But the recent boom in superhero movies has taught us that we are indeed wrong. However, Batman is broken, Captain America is disoriented and Kick-Ass does not even have powers… To misquote The Dark Knight: Every society gets the hero it deserves. So what does it tell us about ourselves and our past, present and future heroes and heroines? And what exactly is a hero/ine and how does s/he become one?
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. 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. As this is a project seminar, we can take only 15 participants in the "2. Studienphase". Students who would like to participate should apply via email to: christian.lenz@tu-dortmund.de by September, 25th.
