WS 18/19: Examensseminar Lyrik nach 1900

  "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold". Dieses Gefühl von Orientierungsverlust, das von W.B. Yeats in seinem Gedicht "The Second Coming" zum Ausdruck gebracht wird, spiegelt die Verwirrung mancher Studierender wider, die sich zum ersten Mal mit der Lyrik des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts konfrontiert sehen. Ihr experimenteller, oft elitärer Charakter hat moderner Lyrik den Ruf eingebracht, "schwierig" zu sein und eine "hermetische Welt" zu erschaffen, die für alle Nicht-Eingeweihten unzugänglich bleibt (Gelfert). Dieses Seminar stellt Ausdrucksformen moderner und zeitgenössischer Lyrik in ihrer gesamten Bandbreite in den Mittelpunkt. In einer Probeklausur erhalten Sie die Gelegenheit, Gelerntes anzuwenden und sich auf das Staatsexamen vorzubereiten. Von allen Teilnehmenden werden Vorbereitung auf die einzelnen Kurstermine und intensive Beteiligung am Seminargespräch erwartet. Für eine Anrechnung von ECTS-Punkten sind eine mündliche Präsentation sowie deren schriftliche Dokumentation verpflichtend. Über MeinCampus angemeldete KursteilnehmerInnen erhalten Informationen und Material zum Kurs auf   StudOn

An e-text is searchable, easy to access. When you want to work with the text intensely, however, an annotated edition with an authoritative text may be well worth the investment. This article will tell you how to get the best of both worlds.

Getting Started On Your Term Paper


Writing a paper is not about your feelings about the text. Neither are you to demonstrate your reading skills by concocting a summary from the books and articles written by others. A paper is supposed to teach you the tools of the trade of academic work - this can be a daunting task. Where do you start?

Presenting in Class


In some course types, such as seminars, we will ask you to introduce a text, an aspect, a theory, or a problem in the form of a presentation, either alone or in a team. Although it can be quite refreshing when someone else stands in front of a class, evaluations show that student presentations are often perceived as boring or unhelpful. Need tips for your next presentation?
