This is the first part of the American Studies course. One of the main aims of this course will be to question received notions of #America', and to contrast preconceived ideas you may have formed about #America' with the complexity of the historical, social and ethnic realities of the NorthAmerican continent. The books on the syllabus will allow you to think about and discuss some of the major issues that have shaped NorthAmerican society and culture(s), and whose repercussions can be felt to this day. We will negotiate between past and present, #ideals' and #reality', to try to develop a perhaps clearer perception of all the different meanings #America' has been endowed with.Reading:

An Introduction to Discourse Analysis (D)
Module: ECTS: Objectif:
Description:
Modalité d'enseignement: Langue: Obligatoire: Evaluation: Professeur:
Module 1 (Semestre 1) 4  getting students to explore the interface between language, linguistics and literature introducing students to linguistic techniques of analysing both literary and nonliterary texts
Discourse analysis is an interdisciplinary field including a wide range of theoretical and methodological approaches from linguistics, anthropology and sociology. In this course, we study how language operates in social and ideological contexts, and how it is used to represent social realities. Genres that will be considered include both literary and nonliterary texts such as media discourse, language in the public space, etc. We explore how language functions as a means of creating meanings and effects in these texts. In this way, students are introduced to modern techniques of analysing language, as well as interpretive strategies to support critical reading.Students of literature (and others with little or no knowledge of linguistics) are encouraged to take this course, as it will introduce them to those specific areas of linguistics that should be of direct relevance to them in their literary analyses.

Les cours de langue italienne ont pour objectif de fournir aux étudiants les moyens de communiquer dans un premier temps dans des situations simples de la vie courante (parler de soimême, s'adresser à des administrations, chercher un emploi ou lire et étudier des textes en italien) en fonction des besoins des étrangers qui se rendent en Italie ou qui doivent utiliser la langue italienne pour des raisons professionnelles. Les cours s'adressent aussi à ceux qui sont intéressés par la culture et la civilisation italiennes et qui apprécient l'italien comme langue dans laquelle de grands écrivains, des poètes et des savants se sont exprimés, sans oublier l'art de la musique où l'influence exercée par l'italien a été très profonde. La méthode utilisée dans l'enseignement de la langue impliquera une approche comparative: c'est à dire que les règles de la langue italienne seront toujours comparées avec celles de la langue

Minor Subject Courses (Semestre 1) 3
 Die Vorlesung bietet eine Einführung in die unterschiedlichen theoretischen Ansätze und Forschungsfelder der Geschichtswissenschaft sowie ihrer Entwick#lung. Sie fragt nach verschiedenen Prämissen und Zielen geschichtswissen#schaftlichen Arbeitens und stellt ihre jeweils spezifischen Methoden und Quellen vor. Die allgemeine Frage #Was ist Geschichte?' steht dabei ebenso im Zentrum des Interesses wie auch die Frage, welchem Zweck die wissenschaftliche Beschäftigung mit der Vergangenheit dient. Es soll dabei die Notwendigkeit eines kritischen Umgangs sowohl mit Quellen als auch mit Forschungsergebnissen verdeutlicht werden. Das Wissen um historische Ereignisse und Prozesse stellt einen wichtigen Faktor bei der Identitätsbildung, Handlungsorientierung sowie Zukunftsplanung dar. Welche Rolle hierbei die notwendige Standortgebundenheit des Historikers spielt und welche Chancen und Gefahren damit verbunden sind, soll anhand ausgewählter Debatten und Historikerkontroversen besprochen werden. Die Relevanz geschichtswissenschaftlicher Erkenntnis für die Ent#stehung von Erinnerungskulturen sowie für das kollektive Gedächtnis bestimmter Bevölkerungsgruppen wird in der Vorlesung auch im Hinblick auf die Aufgaben und den Beruf des Historikers diskutiert.

Module 3 (Semestre 1) 4
The works we will be looking at on this course have at least one common feature: they are generally classified as #science fiction', a genre that is often ignored or dismissed as minor or unimportant. Yet, they raise questions and fears that cannot be ignored, especially in a world that is increasingly shaped by science and technology. Moreover, they are all inscribed in an ongoing debate: by #imagining the future', or possible futures, they ask questions about past and present societies, the scientists and politicians that influence them, and their responsibility towards a world that is always in the process of being built.

Il y a quelques 2500 ans, la philosophie est née en se démarquant du mythe et en affirmant le primat de la raison. Depuis lors, cette suprématie de la raison n'a cessé de faire l'objet de mises en question et de nouvelles apologies. Dans ce cours d'introduction historique à la philosophie, nous analyserons ce parcours turbulent, en nous penchant plus particulièrement sur l'#uvre des philosophes suivants ou sur les écoles philosophiques suivantes : Platon (suprématie absolue de la raison incarnée dans la figure du philosopheroi) ; Aristote (apologie de la vie selon la raison, mais aussi reconnaissance de ses limites) ; les sceptiques (mise en question radicale des pouvoirs de la raison) ; le stoïcisme (la raison contre les passions) ; la philosophie dans l'islam médiéval (primat de la philosophie sur la théologie) ; Saint Thomas (synthèse entre raison et foi) ; Guillaume d'Ockham (le primat de la volonté sur la raison) ; Descartes et les rationalistes (apologie de la raison) ; Locke et les empiristes (de la primauté des sens à la soumission de la raison aux passions) ; Kant (préserver la raison contre ellemême en lui indiquant ses limites, mais par là aussi ses pouvoirs) ; Schopenhauer et Nietzsche (primat de la vie sur la raison) ; l'utilitarisme (le dédoublement de la raison) ; Wittgenstein (la raison malade d'ellemême), Foucault et le postmodernisme (critique du totalitarisme de la raison) ; Habermas (la raison communicationnelle comme nouveau paradigme).

Introduction to Drama Analysis: Shakespeare's Comedies
Module: ECTS: Objectif:
Description:
Module 2 (Semestre 1) 4 familiarising students with the conventions underlying drama as a literary genre introducing students to critical techniques of analysing drama getting students to explore the relationship between printed text and theatrical performance
The aim of this course is to familiarize students with some essential features and conventions of Shakespearean comedy. Since William Shakespeare has achieved high acclaim for his superb handling of this specific genre, we will study four famous exemplars. Shakespeare's The Merchant of Veniceenables us to focus on the conflict between Christians and Jews. Whether this drama offers a satisfactory solution to that conflict is a debatable question. Consequently, we will discuss The Merchant of Venicein terms of a 'problem play'. Much Ado About Nothingwill be used to throw some light on Shakespeare's mixing of tragic and comic elements. (As is welldocumented in criticism, this mixture of genre aspects has emerged as a distinctive feature of Shakespearean drama in general.) Twelfth Night, or, What You Willdeserves our attention as an outstanding example of Shakespeare's socalled

'romantic comedies'. In As You Like It, the thematic contrast between court and country will be highlighted. Both in Twelfth Nightand in As You Like Itthe roles of the fools will be given prominent attention.The major structural features we will deal with are as follows: Plot and plot structure, the dramatis personae (characters) and their thematic grouping, language (including categories such as dialogue, soliloquy, aside, verse and prose). Conventional devices such as 'discrepancy of awareness' and 'dramatic irony' will be made recognizable. In theatrical terms, the modern notion of language in drama as 'spoken action' and the semiotic concept of 'theatre language' will be worth considering as well. Reading: The Merchant of Venice Much Ado About Nothing Twelfth Night As You Like It A complete reading list with suggestions for further reading will be published at a later date.
