Overview

Programme Overview

The English and American (Literary and Cultural) Studies seminars at the University of Paderborn range from medieval times to contemporary English and American writing and cover various genres within fiction and non-fiction. In cultural studies, we offer visual arts classes which examine different media such as photography, art, film or music as well as case studies and broader overviews of more general cultural phenomena. The examples are always discussed within their historical, political, sociological, narratological and other relevant contexts in order to grasp and comprehend larger literary and cultural developments and impacts. Previous seminar topics include: American Philosophy, Modernist American Poetry, Old and Middle English Literature and Culture, Contemporary British Fiction and Postmodernism, Victorian Culture, American Sounds, Death Poetry, British Art, Basketball and American Culture, Shakespeare’s Stage, Urban Studies, Gender and Power in the American Theatre, Dementia, Postcoloniality, Trump’s America, Brexit and many more.

Our language courses (Oral Communication, Academic Writing, and Language Consolidation) provide advanced level English language practice. All our classes (including seminars) are strictly taught in English and aim to foster language skills at a professional level.

In addition to our academic and language education, the programme also features a “Studium Generale” module in which you can acquire additional knowledge by choosing classes from other departments at the University of Paderborn.
