TUT "Introduction to the Critical and Scholarly Discussion of Literature" Course Outline "Introduction to the Critical and Scholarly Discussion of Literature"

This seminar is part of the Basismodul ang070 and focuses on techniques of textual analysis in the context of discussing literature. We are offering ten parallel courses. Please make sure that you are registered under ONE of these in Stud.IP.

All parallel courses have a common structure. The texts for our courses will come from a common pool, though each course may focus on different text passages.

The "analytical tools" will be presented by the lecturers (on a handout) in each meeting. The additional reading from which these 'tools' are taken is not obligatory, and it can be done either before or after each session.

Both the texts and the other materials will be made accessible to you electronically (cf. the links below). In addition you will need to purchase two books:

  • Shakespeare, William. The Tempest. Ed. Virginia Mason Vaughan and Alden T. Vaughan. Arden Shakespeare, third series. London: Bloomsbury, 2011.
  • Conrad, Joseph. Heart of Darkness. Ed. Paul B. Armstrong. New York and London: Norton, 2016.

Course work: You will be asked to write three ungraded exercise assignments (max. 3 pages) and produce a Research Paper Outline 'Plus' (RPOplus), consisting of a research paper outline and a problem-oriented sample analysis (6 pages, due on February 28). The assignments are to be formatted according to the style sheet, and will require you to analyse poetry, drama and fiction respectively. For the RPOplus you will need to find your own topic to work on, document the preliminary work (this includes finding an appropriate title, writing a paragraph on the state of the art of your problem and one that describes your problem and your goal, and presenting a tentative table of contents as well as a short bibliography) and write up a formal and genre-specific analysis of a passage that fits in with the research question and thesis statement put forward in your RPO.
