New Theories, Models and Methods in Literary and Cultural Studies

New Theories, Models and Methods in Literary and Cultural StudiesThis series of podcasts is 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.

Held in the winter term of 2009-2010, this lecture series was intended to offer Giessen’s students an overview of state-of-the-art methods and models for conducting literary and cultural studies. In this manner, the organizers Professors Ansgar Nünning and Greta Olson hoped that students might move forward in devising their own research models and deciding on the method or methods most appropriate for their own work. The lecture series also addressed the question, “If theory is dead what comes next?” The many answers offered to this question in the form of the lectures recorded here suggest that literary and cultural studies are alive and flourishing as theoretical as well as pragmatic forms of analysis.

 

Each lecture begins by offering an overview of a new cultural object or an innovative new method for approaching literary and cultural texts. The speakers then move from offering a theoretical overview of their methods into demonstrating how a practical application of this method would be conducted.

Below, please find an overview of the lecture schedule. Note that not all of the lectures could be recorded as podcasts. By clicking on the title of the lecture, you can access the audio recording. By clicking onto the lecturer’s name you can learn more about her or his publications and research interests. All of the lectures listed here will be available shortly in a WVT Handbook: New Theories, Models and Methods in Literary and Cultural Studies, ed. Ansgar Nünning and Greta Olson (in preparation).
