A Way with Words - Away with Words: Reading and Writing Fiction. Englisch ab B2.2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maryann Henck

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 14:15 - 17:45 | 06.04.2020 - 10.07.2020 | C 5.311

Inhalt: Dieses Semester wird die Veranstaltung als E-Learning Format angeboten, d.h. als Mischung aus Einzel- bzw. Gruppenbetreuung und selbstgesteuertem Lernen. Are you natural talent when it comes to creativity or are you still waiting to find the right 'source' - or should I say 'course' of inspiration? Are your ready to meander along the blurry borders between fact and fiction in order to tell a story even if it's a lie? And finally, do you have a way with words or are they still having their way with you? Then welcome to the world of creative thought and fiction: A Way with Words, Away with Words. In this seminar, you will encounter a variety of creative writing methods in generative workshops (e.g. catalytic creativity exercises for plotlines and character development) as well as responsive workshops (e.g. peer-editing and evaluation methods for constructive criticism). Beginning with a variety of short fiction (twiction, drabbles, vignettes, flash fiction, short stories) and then proceeding to the novel, we will examine and discuss these various forms of prose as well as experiment with exercises in style and literary techniques. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to acquire vocabulary enrichment techniques, develop a feeling for nuances in language (connotations, register), and effectively employ stylistic devices. Finally, you will learn to develop and refine a personal literary style.

Working with Words I. Englisch ab B2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maryann Henck

Termin:
wöchentlich | Dienstag | 12:15 - 15:45 | 06.04.2020 - 10.07.2020 | C 5.111

Inhalt: Dieses Semester wird die Veranstaltung als E-Learning Format angeboten, d.h. als Mischung aus Einzel- bzw. Gruppenbetreuung und selbstgesteuertem Lernen. Do you find yourself dodging the dictionary, confounded by collocations, terrified by translation yet somehow in love with LEO? Perhaps you just feel overwhelmed by words and their wily ways. If you haven’t found your inner “word nerd” yet (and even if you have), this seminar will make a logophile (or maybe even a logomaniac) out of you. After a brief introduction to the perils of translation and the benefits of effective cross-referencing skills, subsequent course topics will include but are not limited to: eponyms; acronyms and initialisms; clippings and blends; connotations and denotations; homonyms, homophones, and homographs. Using a variety of cultural texts (e.g. lyrics/poetry, fiction and non-fiction, films and television series, etc.) as potential sources, you will begin collecting and selecting new words for practical as well as creative exercises. The ultimate objective is not only to learn how to work with words but also how to make them work for you.
