Modern and Contemporary German Studies
The course provides students with a firm grounding in methodological and theoretical issues at the heart of contemporary German studies, as well as enabling them to develop their own research interests. Students take 4 taught modules, assessed by a 5,000 word essay, and write a dissertation of 15,000 words on a research topic which they negotiate with their supervisor. The taught modules comprise 1 core module and 1 directed study module per semester. The core modules deal with critical theory and German studies and constructing identities: history and culture, while the directed study modules are based on a wide-ranging list of topics covering: linguistics, literature and culture 1750-1890; literature culture and politics 1890-1945; contemporary culture and politics; critical theory; film and media studies; all students are required to take generic training modules in the Graduate School.
