Inhalt: In this seminar, we will work with a variety of engaging texts from flash fiction and poetry to scholarly texts. Students will become familiar with a variety of reading strategies in a cooperative atmosphere. In addition, students will practice identifying purpose and organization of texts, while learning to read more critically and efficiently. All of these skills will help students to better master the challenges of reading a variety of university texts in English. Finally, I also hope that students will become more confident and passionate readers over the course of the semester.

Creative Writing: Poetry, Short Fiction, and Beyond. Englisch ab B2.2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maria Moss

Termin:
wöchentlich | Montag | 12:15 - 15:45 | 17.10.2022 - 03.02.2023 | C 5.124 / Aufzug außer Betrieb! Erneuerung der Aufzugsanlage 19.10.-29.11.2022

Inhalt: Interested in awakening your creative spirit and discovering your potential for equally creative output? This seminar puts theory into practice by offering a variety of exercises to ignite ideas, experiment with literary styles and genres as well as give and receive constructive criticism in peer-editing sessions. This seminar will help you develop your own style and voice when writing poetry, flash fiction, vignettes, and a short story or part of a drama. While students will use the Cisneros “snapshot approach” to writing vignettes (e.g. expressing a certain moment, mood, character, or object while creating an atmosphere, not a story), they will initially write traditional Japanese Haikus before moving on to the great modernists, such as Robert Frost and W.C. Williams. In the end, students will have a portfolio (for lack of a better name), consisting of 3 Haikus, 3 pieces of short fiction, and 3 poems.

Introducing North American Studies (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maria Moss

Termin:
wöchentlich | Montag | 16:15 - 17:45 | 17.10.2022 - 03.02.2023 | C 5.311 / Aufzug außer Betrieb! Erneuerung der Aufzugsanlage 19.10.-29.11.2022

Inhalt: The North American continent is one of the most diverse places in the world with a rich immigrant history, a vibrant political culture, and an influential media and arts industry. After a general introduction to North American Studies, we will concentrate on the following topics: Native cultures and the oral tradition; European colonization and immigration; Canada-U.S. relations (settlement patterns, ecological movements, and literary cultures); mainstream and marginalized voices that – encouraged by the social movements of the 1960s – enriched both the political debates and the literatures of North America. Apart from traditional academic texts, we will also examine non-academic texts, such as blogs, newspapers, songs and political cartoons.

Contemporary Canadian Culture: A Search for Identity (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maria Moss

Termin:
wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 10:15 - 11:45 | 17.10.2022 - 03.02.2023 | C 5.124 / Aufzug außer Betrieb! Erneuerung der Aufzugsanlage 19.10.-29.11.2022

Inhalt: Many of the texts written, read, and studied in Canada over the past two decades ask questions and challenge assumptions about the nature of Canada´s relationship with others: with minorities, with their direct neighbors (most specifically, the United States), with their Native populations, and with non-human others. Taking its cue from the collection of essays by Margaret Atwood, "Strange Things: The Malevolent North in Canadian Literature" as well as "Survival: A Thematic Guide to Canadian Literature," we will explore contemporary Canadian culture and analyze the manifold ways in which it expresses a specifically “Canadian” identity.
