Voraussetzungen / Organisatorisches

Aufbauseminar Literature belongs to the following modules:

  • Basismodul Literature in BA English and American Studies;
  • Basismodul Literature in Lehramt Englisch an Gymnasien.

There are no prerequisites for admission. However, we strongly recommend that you take this class after you have passed Grundseminar Literature.

The class concludes with a written exam.


Building on the knowledge acquired in Grundseminar Literature, this class serves as an introduction to literary theory. We will discuss several approaches and methods in depth and critically analyze their potential and limits by applying them to exemplary primary texts. In doing so, we will also reflect on how these different approaches and methods impact our understanding of literature.
