Students will develop fundamental theoretical and methodological knowledge and competences pertinent to their PhD projects  

With the spatial turn in the 1980s, space has returned to cultural studies. This seminar sets out to explore different descriptive and conceptual models of space. We will focus in particular on how notions of discourse and borders confine and define spaces in different disciplines and methodological approaches. As this course is designed especially for members of the doctoral program “Grenzen, Gernzverschiebungen und Grenzüberschreitungen in Sprache, Literatur, Medien,” we will deal primarily with research perspectives developed in literary and cultural studies.

Group work, critical reading and discussion of primary texts and their space-theoretical implications

Active participation, presentations, short writing assignments

Our primary text sample will be discussed in the first introductory session. Required reading (please acquire): Jörg Dünne/Stephan Günzel (Hrsg.): Raumtheorie. Grundlagentexte aus Philosophie und Kulturwissenschaften. Frankfurt am Main 2006.
