Lehrveranstaltungen

Words, Words, Words (Group 1). Englisch ab B2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maryann Henck

Termin:
wöchentlich | Dienstag | 12:15 - 15:45 | 12.10.2020 - 29.01.2021 | Online-Veranstaltung

Inhalt: 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. NOTE: Prior to the Fall Semester 2020/21, this seminar was offered as "Working with Words."

Working with Eco-Critical Texts. Englisch ab B2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Maria Moss

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 14:15 - 17:45 | 12.10.2020 - 29.01.2021 | Online-Veranstaltung

Inhalt: In this seminar we will study various facets of eco critical expression. We will examine how different approaches - narrative and otherwise - reflect the way nature and environment in general as well as different environmental issues in particular (such as pollution, deforestation, and the loss of species) are dealt with in society. In order to do justice to the ethical and political dimensions of environmentalism, we will discuss current eco-critical hotspots in the Anglo-American world and beyond. Special attention will be given to the aspect of "critical animal studies."

Writing With Style: Discovering Your Academic Voice in English. Englisch ab B2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Sabrina Völz

Termin:
wöchentlich | Freitag | 12:15 - 15:45 | 12.10.2020 - 29.01.2021 | Online-Veranstaltung

Inhalt: Ready for a challenge? Feel like giving your writing and speaking skills a fine-tuning? Do you want to find out more about the potential benefits and limitations of digital writing tools, while gaining a deeper understanding of film? If so, then this course might be the course for you. Each participant will gain experience working with a variety of academic texts that can help writers to improve their writing style, editing, and revision skills. Due to the heterogeneity of seminar participants, the instructor will assist students in developing their own writing style and mentor them on an individual basis. Furthermore, academic writing does not have to be boring, mechanical, or dry. Thus, we will take a closer look at sentence variety, voice, and the creative use of language. These are topics that digital writing tools, such as Grammarly, have not yet mastered. After learning about various techniques, course participants will discover the fine art of knowing when and how to use creative approaches in academic writing. Moreover, after a brief introduction to film studies, we will discuss, learn to appreciate, and analyze one film. Students will chose among Hidden Figures (2016), Black Panther (2018), and Green Book (2018).
