Lecture with discussion; possibly witz oral translations by the students.

Depends on the number of attendants, the regularity of their attendance and the quality of their contributions. If necessary for a fair evaluation there will ne a written exam at the end of the term.

On a special shelf in the library plus a selection of articles deposited in a folder in Ms. Steixner's bureau. Please note: a considerable part of the bibliography is French, so preparing to the exam without attending the lecture can be problematic.
