Curriculum

  • Historical and comparative analysis of language, texts, literature (e.g. in terms of stylistic, generic, era-specific features) based on a corpus from the English-speaking world ranging from about 700 A.D. to the present day.
  • Global and intercultural communication within conceptual frameworks such as 'World Englishes', 'World Literature', 'Transatlantic Negotiations', 'Post-Colonialism', and with regard to English as a lingua franca in culture and science.
  • Cross-media approaches to nonverbal and/or hybrid cultural phenomena (image, sound, dance, song, film, music video, graphic novel, the internet).
  • General functional theory of culture, language, text, and literature vis-à-vis particular contexts in intellectual, social, technological, and media history; or regarding cultural conflicts in the realm of class, gender, and ethnicity.
  • Current theories and empirical research on many aspects of the mental lexicon and grammar (especially morphology), on language development (grammaticalization, English-based contact languages) and domain-specific language use (law, science, economy, the new media).
  • Especially designed courses for oral presentations and academic writing, event management and organization and team work.
