S/Ü "Key Concepts in Cultural Studies" Course Outline "Key Concepts"

Revision: Ü "Revision Course"

Ü "Revision Course" Course Outline "Revision Course"

Both the lecture (VL) and the courses (S/Ü) are part of the Basismodul ang070 and focus on key concepts in cultural studies and techniques of textual analysis in the context of discussing culture. The VL "Historical Backgrounds and Critical Concepts" consists of 7 lectures and the S/Ü "Key Concepts in Cultural Studies" of 14 courses/Übungen.

The S/Ü "Key Concepts in Cultural Studies" analyzes material and is relying on concepts and approaches complemented by the lectures. The analysis of the material from a cultural studies perspective is based on three guiding questions:

  • 1. What are the specific and medial characteristics of the Material? (See Handouts: Conceptual Tools)
  • 2. How is the material situated and what institutions are responsible for its existence and discussion?
  • 3. What function and effect for identity formation can the material have?

Please make sure that you are registered for the lecture and ONE of the courses in Stud.IP.

The texts for our courses will come from a common pool, though each course may have a different choice.

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. Mandatory texts and other materials will be made accessible to you electronically (cf. the links below). In addition, you will need to purchase the following works:

   Douglass, Frederick. Narrative of the Life of Frederic Douglass, an American Slave, Written By Himself. 1845. Eds. William L. Andrews and William S. McFeely. New York: Norton, 2016. Print.
   Bechdel, Alison. Fun Home: A Family  Tragicomic. London: Jonathan Cape, 2006. Print.
   Apocalypse Now: Final Cut. Dir. Francis Ford Coppola. Perf. Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, Frederic Forrest, and Dennis Hopper. 1979. Arthaus, 2019. DVD.

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 (due on August 15). The assignments are to be formatted according to the style sheet, and will require you to analyse a non-fiction text, a graphic novel and a film 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.

Guidelines for finding your RPO topic:

1. Your RPOplus topic needs to be related to at least one of the key concepts: identity, media, discourse, culture and representation
2. As the material basis for your analysis you will need to pick material from the 'Übungen' (Narrative, Fun Home, Apocalypse Now).

You have access to the scholarly discourse on the material from the Übung through the MLA database.
