For Start

Welcome to the English Department at the Justus Liebig University of Giessen, where you can study in one of Germany’s student-friendliest cities. We believe that the JLU is a great place to begin or to further your education in English and Anglophone Studies and Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

 

Our students tell us that they appreciate studying at the JLU English Department because the faculty cares. And we do. We aim to engage students in course materials and facilitate their interacting with them in ways that go beyond traditional classroom learning. Students are offered various avenues for demonstrating their work and having it evaluated. This can include making films, doing creative writing, contributing to library exhibitions, and compiling learning portfolios. Students also enjoy choosing from a broad range of topics in their course programs, from the “History of the English Language” to “World Englishes” in Linguistics, from “Early Modern Drama” to “Feminist Dystopias” in Literary, Cultural, and Media studies, and from “Task-Based, Cultural-Sensitive Instruction” to “Heterogeneity” in Teaching English as a Global and a Foreign Language. All of our courses are taught in English and feature new insights into participatory media cultures. This includes studying hybrid learning techniques as well as learning how to conduct synchronous online teaching on a variety of platforms. We present innovations in media, cultural, and gender and sexuality studies, language pedagogy as well as in linguistic analysis and theory.

 

The Department is proud of its traditional research foci in corpus linguistics and varieties of English as well as in narrative and cultural studies in addition to empirical, classroom-based studies. Students can participate in new research in these fields in departmental courses as well as at the Giessen International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture. The Department’s degree programs in Intercultural Communication and Business give you the opportunity to combine a focus on Business Studies with your interests in languages and culture. Our practical language teaching classes now allow you to certify your proficiency in English with the UNIcert program. Our Study Abroad programs enable you to combine your studies in Giessen with a semester at one of our many, far-ranging partner universities, should you wish to.

 

Beginning in the Winter Semester 2020/2021, the Department offers a variety of innovative new degree programs. Some highlights of these programs include the following. The BA and MA degrees in Intercultural Communication and Business (ICB) are extremely hands-on. They integrate practical business training into the study program while continuing to maintain focus on the popular topic of English Business Communication. They also offer students thorough introductions to Intercultural Communication. The new BA program in Anglophone Studies welcomes international students as well as German nationals by allowing them to study exclusively in English. You can now choose a major and a minor from the Department’s three major fields of Linguistics, Literary, Cultural, and Media Studies, and Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The BA degree also offers a module in Gender, Sexuality, and Diversity that investigates the newest research and debates in these fields and allows you to engage with new forms of activism relating to gender and sexuality. The BA and MA degree programs in Anglophone Studies feature hands-on introductory courses. There, you can learn the basics of performing linguistic analysis, or doing media, literary and cultural interpretation, or the essentials of Teaching English as a Foreign Language in the twenty-first century.

The literary studies section of the English Department covers the whole range of literature produced in the English language. Besides the more classical research domains of British, Irish, and American literature, the 'New English Literatures', i.e. Anglophone literatures such as Australian, Indian, South African, Canadian, or Caribbean literature, constitute another important field of study.

The study of English and American literature encompasses an extraordinarily broad field. Whereas more traditional approaches to literature (e.g. biographical studies, literary history, reception and criticism of literature) still remain vital parts of the curriculum, special emphasis is put on the historical and cultural dimensions of literature. Thus, there is a strong affiliation to cultural studies (American Studies, British Cultural Studies, etc.). Among the theoretical approaches the literary studies section of the department is particularly concerned with are cultural history, gender and postcolonial studies as well as genre theory and narratology.

The department’s literary studies section offers introductory courses, seminars, colloquia and lectures for students at all degree levels (Bachelor, Master, Diplom, and Lehramt). The courses cover all literary periods from early modern period to the present, all major genres (poetry, drama, and narrative texts) as well as other media, especially film. More detailed information on the courses of studies, the study and examination regulations, obligatory reading lists and study guidance can be found on the department's website in the section general information for students. For a detailed overview of courses, please have a look at the current teaching programme.

Cultural studies takes culture as its object of study. At Justus Liebig University, cultural studies encompasses both the Anglophone tradition of taking a politically engaged approach to culture from, for instance, a basis in feminism or critical race theory, and the German tradition of studying culture from an explicitly interdisciplinary perspective. Because our programme does not differentiate between British and American Studies, students are encouraged to pursue comparative transnational cultural analysis.

English and American literature and culture at JLU

English and American literature and culture at JLUNew Questions about Old Texts

Giessen has a long-standing tradition of research in literary and cultural history, combining the study of classical works and authors such as William Shakespeare and Jane Austen with innovative perspectives on these and lesser known writers within their cultural contexts. While we focus primarily on British, Irish, and American literature, Giessen's degree programmes also allow you to study postcolonial literature from around the globe. Specialized courses in authors, periods, and genres shall enable you to develop a firm grasp of literature in English. Courses in advanced literary, cultural and media analysis will help you to formulate new questions about old (and new) texts.


Thinking Critically about Culture

Cultural studies will teach you methods for thinking critically about Anglophone cultures, their traditions, and how they are represented and reproduced. Cultural studies takes culture as its object of study. At the University of Giessen cultural studies encompasses both the Anglophone tradition of taking a politically engaged approach to culture and the German tradition of studying culture from an explicitly interdisciplinary perspective. In our programmes you will learn specific methods of cultural analysis. These include: decoding (or semiotic analysis), cognitive metaphor analysis, narrative theory, media studies, linguistic theories about identity construction, methods for attaining visual and media literacy, and historical analysis. A grasp of these methods will help you to develop your own final thesis project.

Lecture Series

These lecture series are intended to give you an impression of the English Department at the University of Giessen. It provides an introduction to the faculty of the Literary and Cultural Studies section as well as to other department members who are working on similar issues from other disciplinary angles. Literary and cultural studies are interdisciplinary ventures. Students at Giessen who major in these fields profit not only from the close collaboration of our faculty with professors in linguistics and didactics but also from the presence of the International Graduate Center for the Study of Culture.

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of the journal Zeitschrift für Anglistik und Amerikanistik (ZAA)

 The Aesthetics and Politics of Psychotherapy:
Literary, Cultural, and Media Perspectives on ‘Healing the Soul’

Editor: Joanna Rostek (University of Giessen, Germany)

This special issue of the ZAA: A Quarterly of Language, Literature and Culture will explore the aesthetics and politics of psychotherapy from the point of view of Anglophone literary, cultural, and media studies. In particular, we seek contributions that fall into at least one of the following three strands:

  1. Investigating points of convergence between psychotherapy on the one hand and literary, cultural, and media studies on the other.
  2. Analyses of fictional representations of the psychotherapeutic process (in novels, films, series, plays, etc.).
  3. Analyses of non- and semi-fictional insights into the psychotherapeutic process created by (former) psychotherapists or patients (memoirs, podcasts etc.).

As Christine Lister-Ford states in her Short Introduction to Psychotherapy, “[s]ince the earliest recording of human culture there has been evidence of human mental and emotional distress and also ways to explain and alleviate it” (11). Literary and cultural texts, due to their capacity to verbalise and label complex interior states, provide a unique psychological archive. But they do not merely record: precisely because they translate emotions into words and images and arrange them into patterns, they arguably perform similar work to that involved in conversation-based psychotherapy. In the words of novelist and psychotherapist Lisa Williamson Rosenberg: “What ties my therapist-self to my writer-self is the ability to translate emotion into words.” One could also claim that literary and cultural scholars decoding meanings and structures and ‘containing’ them through academic language perform a type of work comparable to that of psychotherapists. Contemporary psychologists and psychotherapists are open to the idea that literary and cultural texts can play a role in the process of ‘healing the soul’. Bibliotherapy, as the website Psychology Today explains, “is a therapeutic approach employing books and other forms of literature, typically alongside more traditional therapy modalities, to support a patient’s mental health”. Watching films can apparently have similar effects: “cinema therapy”, as psychotherapist Bruce Kircaldy explains, “refers to using movies to help address issues of psychological and mental well-being” (5).

From Philip Roth’s Portnoy’s Complaint (1969) and David Lodge’s Therapy (1995) to The Sopranos (1999-2007) and In Treatment (2008-2021), psychotherapy has been represented in a considerable number of novels, poems, plays, films, and TV series (Anghelescu et al.; Furst; Hotz-Davies & Kirchhofer; Thurston; Wassmann). Some of this work has been produced by therapist-novelists, e.g. Irvin D. Yalom, Salley Vickers, and Bev Thomas. Depictions of psychotherapy have been used for various aesthetic and political purposes. Placing a character in the role of a patient in a psychotherapeutic setting can, for instance, legitimise the inclusion of potentially tabooed topics, harness readers’ voyeurism and attention, create sympathy for a flawed and/or vulnerable protagonist, question normative discourses, or establish narrative unreliability. The power dynamics between psychotherapist and patient are amenable to setting up suspense, while representing the intimacy of the consulting room enables the creation of discrepant awareness, which perhaps explains why psychotherapy seems to feature regularly in thriller and crime genres.

Finally, psychotherapists themselves have been producing popular non-fictional or semi-fictional texts that give insight into their profession and thought. A classic in this regard is Man’s Search for Meaning (1946) by Viktor Franckl. More recent best-sellers include Stephen Grosz’s An Examined Life (2014), Philippa Perry’s The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (2019), and Lori Gottlieb’s Maybe You Should Talk to Someone (2019). Therapeutic podcasts have likewise mushroomed over the past decade: Esther Perel’s Where Should We Begin, Lori Gottlieb and Guy Winch’s Dear Therapists, or Gill Straker, Rachael Burton, and Andrew Geeves’s Three Associating provide glimpses into psychotherapy ‘in action’, while at the same time raising interesting questions regarding privacy, exposure, and audience interaction in the context of digital media.

This special issue therefore puts its focus not on mental ill health per se, but on the aesthetics and politics of the psychotherapeutic process. Historical approaches, comparative UK-US perspectives as well as transdisciplinary collaborations between literary, cultural, and media scholars and psychologists or psychotherapists are welcome.

Papers may address, but are not limited to, the following topics within the three strands named above:

  • theoretical approaches to overlaps between psychotherapy and literature, culture, and media
  • shared patterns of communication in psychotherapy and literature
  • reading and interpreting texts and/as and psychotherapy
  • the cultural imaginary of psychotherapy in novels, films, series, plays, etc.
  • psychotherapy and genre (e.g. autofiction, memoirs, thrillers, crime series)
  • narratological affordances of psychotherapy
  • psychotherapy and discourses of healing and/or self-care
  • psychotherapy, voyeurism, and secrecy
  • psychotherapy and/in digital culture
  • psychotherapy and self-help culture

Please send an abstract of c. 300 words and a short bio profile to Joanna Rostek by 15 March 2023. Authors will be informed in the course of March whether their submission has been accepted. Articles (c. 5,000 words) will be due by 15 September 2023, to allow time for the peer-review process. The special issue is scheduled to appear in 2024.

Book Launch From Law and Literature to Legality and Affect, 10.10.22

Please join us on Monday, 10 October, from 6 to 8 PM / 18:00 to 20:00 (UTC+02:00). Everyone is welcome, and there is no need to register beforehand.

From Law and Literature to Legality and Affect argues for the continued vitality of Law and Literature. Traditional methods of Law and Literature are combined with work in critical media studies, affect, and cultural narratology to address topics such as ethnonationalism, anti-immigration sentiment, and systemic racism in Germany and the United States. Taking stock of the diversification of the field at fifty years, this book understands Law and Literature as a political project. It has a precedent in inaugural Law and Literature texts such as Jacob Grimm's "Von der Poesie im Recht" (On the Poetry in Law) from 1815/16, which imagined an alternative legal order that was grounded in the unity of law, poetic language, and feeling. The political thrust of Law and Literature continues up into the present in the arts of BlackLivesMatter, which document and resist police violence. Law and Literature offers keys for understanding how legal texts and identities are constructed, and for comprehending how cultural-legal issues are mediated affectively. Using cultural, medial, affect theoretical, and narrative analyses of law, a revitalized Law and Literature offers a set of methods and theories with which to address the most pressing issues of the present.

Ausstellungseröffnung "Die Klassifizierung der Welt - universitäres Sammeln im kolonialen Kontext", 01.09.2022

Wir laden herzlich ein zur feierlichen Eröffnung der Sonderausstellung „Die Klassifizierung der Welt – universitäres Sammeln im kolonialen Kontext", die unter der Beteiligung der Abteilung Linguistik des Instituts für Anglistik entstanden ist. Die Eröffnung findet am 1. September 2022 um 17 Uhr im Hörsaal der Hermann-Hoffmann-Akademie der JLU Gießen statt.

Grußwort: Prof. Dr. Joybrato Mukherjee, Präsident der Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen
Einführung: Prof. Dr. Bettina Brockmeyer (Historisches Institut), Prof. Dr. Magnus Huber (Institut für Anglistik)

anschließend Umtrunk und Besichtigung der Ausstellung mit den Kuratorinnen und Kuratoren

Zur Ausstellung:

Die Sonderausstellung, die vom 01.09. – 16.10.2022 im Palmenhaus des Botanischen Gartens zu sehen sein wird, beleuchtet Sammlungen an der Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen, die im Zuge von universitären Aktivitäten in kolonialen Kontexten bzw. durch kolonial inspirierte Sammlungsaktivitäten ihren Weg an die Universität Gießen fanden. Im Fokus stehen dabei vier Themensektionen, die unterschiedliche Sammlungsbestände der Universität im 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhundert beleuchten:

Die Antikensammlung: Im frühen 20. Jahrhundert fanden Objekte von verschiedenen Grabungsexpeditionen ihren Weg in die Antikensammlung, die ihren Bestand vor allem unter Lehrsammlungsaspekten erheblich erweiterte. So gelangten auch Funde aus dem unter britischer Kontrolle stehenden Ägypten und aus dem vom deutschen Kaiserreich wirtschaftlich abhängigen osmanischen Reich nach Gießen, darunter auch die kaiserliche Schenkung von Funden aus Heinrich Schliemanns Troja-Grabungen.

Der Botanische Garten: Der Direktor des Botanischen Gartens, Adolf Hansen, und sein Gartenbauinspektor Friedrich Rehnelt reisten zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts nach Sri Lanka, in die damalige britische Kolonie Ceylon, um Pflanzen und Samen in großen Mengen nach Gießen zu transferieren. Die „Ausbeute" lässt sich heute noch im Hansen-Rehnelt-Herbarium und in Bildaufnahmen rekonstruieren.

Die Sondersammlungen der Universitätsbibliothek: Die Provenienz der singhalesischen Palmblatthandschriften der Universitätsbibliothek aus Sri Lanka ist bis zu den Schenkern nachvollziehbar. Die Objekte verdeutlichen, wie diese kulturellen Zeugnisse von Privatpersonen im späten 19. Jahrhundert teils als Souvenirs erworben wurden, ohne sie inhaltlich einordnen zu können.

Sektion Linguistik: Im Rahmen der Kolonisierung trafen mit den Kulturen auch Sprachen aufeinander. Die Sektion beschäftigt sich mit dem Pidgin-English als Verkehrssprache in deutschen Kolonien und seinem Verhältnis zum Deutschen. Daneben wird auch die Instrumentalisierung von Sprache zur Konstruktion einer weißen Überlegenheit als Legitimation der Kolonisierung untersucht.

Die Ausstellung bildet zugleich den Auftakt zu einer Auseinandersetzung mit der kolonialen Vergangenheit an der Justus-Liebig-Universität, und knüpft an die derzeitige Debatte über den Umgang mit dem europäischen Kolonialismus an, die momentan in Deutschland und in den Nachbarländern in vollem Gange ist. Die Museen und auch die universitären Sammlungen enthalten Objekte, die aus der Zeit des Hochimperialismus und den zu der Zeit bestehenden Kolonien stammen. Zunehmend wird deshalb gefragt, woher die Sammlungsgegenstände kommen, und die Provenienz der Dinge erforscht, so derzeit auch im Oberhessischen Museum (aktuelle Ausstellung: „Zwischen Sammelwut und Forschungsdrang. Koloniale Kontexte in Gießen" vom 06.05.2022–15.01.2023 im Alten Schloss).

Die Ausstellungsidee entstand unter den Mitgliedern der Justus-Liebig-Universität in der vom Hessischen Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst angestoßenen und geförderten und durch die Konferenz Hessischer Universitätspräsidien gebildeten Kommission „Koloniales Erbe in Hessen", welche die wissenschaftliche Expertise der hessischen Universitäten zur Thematik bündelt.

Das Ausstellungsteam besteht aus Prof. Dr. Bettina Brockmeyer (Historisches Institut), Dr. Joachim Hendel (Universitätsarchiv Gießen), Prof. Dr. Magnus Huber (Institut für Anglistik), Prof. Dr. Katharina Lorenz (Professur für Klassische Archäologie), Dr. Olaf Schneider (Sondersammlungen der Universitätsbibliothek Gießen), Dr. Michaela Stark (Kustodin der Antikensammlung der JLU), Dr. Alissa Theiß (JLU-Sammlungskoordination), Lutz Trautmann M. A. (Universitätsarchiv Gießen) und Prof. Dr. Volker Wissemann (Professur für Spezielle Botanik).

Guest lecture: Exhibiting photographs and memory images of labor migration // Dr. Ela Kaçel, 09.02.22, 4-6 PM

"Vor Ort: Fotogeschichten zur Migration, presented at Museum Ludwig, Cologne (June 19 – October 3, 2021) has offered a new focus on the private photographs and their stories narrated by their makers and protagonists. Depending on the choice of setting and framing in public places of Cologne and other cities in the Rhineland, a series of visual narratives emerged from 1955 to 1989 among labor migrants who passionately photographed themselves, their families, and their living environments. Yet those narratives rather remained unknown and underrepresented in the postwar history of cities, even though the chosen sites were essential for the personal as well as collective memories, as such amateur photography also documented the urban and social transformations in cities."

Dr. Ela Kaçel is an architectural historian and co-curator of the exhibition "In Situ: Photo Stories on Migration," which features photos of so-called 'guest' workers of Cologne and other cities in the Rhineland. "In Situ" covers the period between 1955 and 1989 after the labor recruitment agreements between West Germany and mainly Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Turkey. More information about Dr. Kaçel's work can be found here:

https://www.museum-ludwig.de/en/exhibitions/in-situ-photo-stories-on-migration.html

The lecture is part of the weekly seminar "Images of Migration", which covers the topics of flight, migration, human rights and critical media studies.

"Futures in Crisis - or What Comes After Dystopia?"

 

Kick-off event of the digital interdisciplinary lecture series "Shaping the Future: Female and Queer Perspectives on Possible Futures" on May 26, 2021, 6-7.30 p.m.

 

How has and will the COVID-19 crisis change the way we think about the future, and why do we struggle to think realistically about change? What role do women play in telling visions of the future? Under the title "Future in Crisis - or What Comes After Dystopia?" Germanist Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Herrmann, University of Warwick, ventures an outlook. The event will take place online via Webex Events from 6 to 8 p.m. on May 26, 2021. Afterwards, a question and discussion session will provide space for exchange and ideas.

 

The talk is the first of a total of seven presentations in the interdisciplinary event series "Shaping the Future: Female and Queer Perspectives on Possible Futures," which is funded as part of JLU's Ideas Competition for the Advancement of Women. The initiators and organizers, Anna Tabouratzidis M.A. and Jana Christoffel M.A., both from the Institute of English Studies at JLU and members of IPP as well as GCSC, want to make queer and female voices heard with the new event format in order to jointly take a look at future scenarios or global coexistence after the Corona crisis. The lectures from political and social sciences, gender studies, literary and cultural studies, as well as applied pedagogy and psychology are intended to provide food for thought and invite people to discuss new concepts of future coexistence together.

 

The lectures will take place online on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. and are open to the public via Webex Events. To receive the link to the event, please register via the registration form on the website:

New Degree Course "Intercultural Communication and Business" (ICB)

The Bachelor Degree program Intercultural Business and Communication (ICB) begins during the Winter Semester 2020/2021. Here, you can combine a focus on Anglophone business communication with courses in a second business language while also studying business administration and commercial law. Our very popular Business English courses will help to improve your language proficiency in business contexts. Courses on controversial advertisements and media add to your understanding business from a cultural point of view. An internship or work on an independent business-related project is built into the study program.

Your focus in the program will be on English and Anglophone business communication. Additionally, you can choose a minor in one of the following business languages: French, Croatian/Serbian/Bosnian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Czech, or Ukrainian. The Economics part of the degree consists of classes in business administration, macroeconomics, statistics, and business law. The course of studies runs for six semesters and consists of 180 credit points. It begins during the Winter Semester in October of each year. The program qualifies you for work in international businesses and/or international cultural institutions.

Business English courses will help to improve your language proficiency while also acquiring a better understanding of Anglophone business cultures. Courses on media and culture further your understanding of Anglophone cultures and forms of communication.

You can combine this focus with a minor in another business language including French, Croatian/Serbian/Bosnian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, or Czech. Alternatively, you can do an internship or a praxis-oriented project instead rather than focusing on a second language.

The literary studies section of the English Department covers the whole range of literature produced in the English language. Besides the more classical research domains of British, Irish, and American literature, the 'New English Literatures', i.e. Anglophone literatures such as Australian, Indian, South African, Canadian, or Caribbean literature, constitute another important field of study.

The study of English and American literature encompasses an extraordinarily broad field. Whereas more traditional approaches to literature (e.g. biographical studies, literary history, reception and criticism of literature) still remain vital parts of the curriculum, special emphasis is put on the historical and cultural dimensions of literature. Thus, there is a strong affiliation to cultural studies (American Studies, British Cultural Studies, etc.). Among the theoretical approaches the literary studies section of the department is particularly concerned with are cultural history, gender and postcolonial studies as well as genre theory and narratology.

The department’s literary studies section offers introductory courses, seminars, colloquia and lectures for students at all degree levels (Bachelor, Master, Diplom, and Lehramt). The courses cover all literary periods from early modern period to the present, all major genres (poetry, drama, and narrative texts) as well as other media, especially film. More detailed information on the courses of studies, the study and examination regulations, obligatory reading lists and study guidance can be found on the department's website in the section general information for students. For a detailed overview of courses, please have a look at the current teaching programme.

Cultural studies takes culture as its object of study. At Justus Liebig University, cultural studies encompasses both the Anglophone tradition of taking a politically engaged approach to culture from, for instance, a basis in feminism or critical race theory, and the German tradition of studying culture from an explicitly interdisciplinary perspective. Because our programme does not differentiate between British and American Studies, students are encouraged to pursue comparative transnational cultural analysis.

For Start

Welcome to the English Department at the Justus Liebig University of Giessen, where you can study in one of Germany’s student-friendliest cities. We believe that the JLU is a great place to begin or to further your education in English and Anglophone Studies and Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

 

Our students tell us that they appreciate studying at the JLU English Department because the faculty cares. And we do. We aim to engage students in course materials and facilitate their interacting with them in ways that go beyond traditional classroom learning. Students are offered various avenues for demonstrating their work and having it evaluated. This can include making films, doing creative writing, contributing to library exhibitions, and compiling learning portfolios. Students also enjoy choosing from a broad range of topics in their course programs, from the “History of the English Language” to “World Englishes” in Linguistics, from “Early Modern Drama” to “Feminist Dystopias” in Literary, Cultural, and Media studies, and from “Task-Based, Cultural-Sensitive Instruction” to “Heterogeneity” in Teaching English as a Global and a Foreign Language. All of our courses are taught in English and feature new insights into participatory media cultures. This includes studying hybrid learning techniques as well as learning how to conduct synchronous online teaching on a variety of platforms. We present innovations in media, cultural, and gender and sexuality studies, language pedagogy as well as in linguistic analysis and theory.

 

The Department is proud of its traditional research foci in corpus linguistics and varieties of English as well as in narrative and cultural studies in addition to empirical, classroom-based studies. Students can participate in new research in these fields in departmental courses as well as at the Giessen International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture. The Department’s degree programs in Intercultural Communication and Business give you the opportunity to combine a focus on Business Studies with your interests in languages and culture. Our practical language teaching classes now allow you to certify your proficiency in English with the UNIcert program. Our Study Abroad programs enable you to combine your studies in Giessen with a semester at one of our many, far-ranging partner universities, should you wish to.

 

Beginning in the Winter Semester 2020/2021, the Department offers a variety of innovative new degree programs. Some highlights of these programs include the following. The BA and MA degrees in Intercultural Communication and Business (ICB) are extremely hands-on. They integrate practical business training into the study program while continuing to maintain focus on the popular topic of English Business Communication. They also offer students thorough introductions to Intercultural Communication. The new BA program in Anglophone Studies welcomes international students as well as German nationals by allowing them to study exclusively in English. You can now choose a major and a minor from the Department’s three major fields of Linguistics, Literary, Cultural, and Media Studies, and Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The BA degree also offers a module in Gender, Sexuality, and Diversity that investigates the newest research and debates in these fields and allows you to engage with new forms of activism relating to gender and sexuality. The BA and MA degree programs in Anglophone Studies feature hands-on introductory courses. There, you can learn the basics of performing linguistic analysis, or doing media, literary and cultural interpretation, or the essentials of Teaching English as a Foreign Language in the twenty-first century.

New publication by Greta Olson, Daniel Hartley, Mirjam Horn-Schott, and Leonie Schmidt

The Handbook contains contributions from current and former members of the GCSC as well as the wider JLU community, including Christoph Bovermann and Kathrin Ebmeier, Jordana Greenblatt, Franka Heise, Dr. Beatrice Michaelis, Shermal Wijewardene, and Katharina Zilles.

 

Beyond Gender documents the diversification of gender-related disciplines and struggles, arguing for a multidisciplinary approach to issues formerly subsumed under the unified field of gender studies. It explains current debates and historicizes terms such as first, second, and third-wave feminism, intersectionality, cis, trans*, queer*, social reproduction theory, and homonormativity.

 

The essays in Part I – “Undoing Gender Studies – Theoretical Positions” – demonstrate how the concept of gender has been critiqued by theories pertaining to masculinity, feminism, and sexuality. Readers are offered insights into feminist- and sexuality-related research in sociolinguistics, masculinity studies, social reproduction theory, and intersectionality. The essays in Part II – “Forms of Practice – Doing the After of Gender Studies” – illustrate how the binary and hierarchical ordering system of gender has been troubled or overcome in practice: in queer performance, legal critique, the classroom, and textual analysis. All of the essays envision alternative ways of theorizing and practising gender and sexuality.
