Ability to describe and critically reflect the state of research related to a specific topic; proficiency in applying this knowledge to a concrete scholarly question; experience in analysing various texts and discussing them from different theoretical perspectives; ability to compile a convincing and academically sound presentation of results in a seminar paper.

We will discuss illustrated magazines and yellow press in the 1920s as environment for literaure and several novels in these magazines. We will talk about high and low culture. At first we will read Irmgard Keun's Gilgi - eine von uns and discuss how this novel deals with intermediality and magazine culture. 

Modul in general: The scholarly dealing with (historical) sources is a basic skill of historiographic scholarship. But, scholarly source criticism is also relevant for literary scholarship, especially when working with archival materials in any literary archive. Where is the source from? When was it produced? Who did it, for whom, and to what end? To find answers to these questions often requires skills of detection, commonsense and knowledge of literary history. The answers will lead us to new interpretations of the sources  - and often to new perspecitves on history of literature itself.
With the archival materials held at the Research Brenner-Archives we practise different forms of literary source criticism.
This is a hands-on course!
