This seminar is exclusively for Grundschullehramtsstudierende.
This seminar will examine coal and coal cultures in the Anglophone world. We will use the space of the seminar to discuss the different ways in which coal enables cultures, with a view in particular to class. Topics pertaining to the environmental humanities, extractivism and sustainabilities will also be integral to our discussions. Our discussions will centre analyses of specific texts, both written and audio-visual.
We will read ethnographic, auto-biographical and crime fiction texts, watch films, as well as engaging with theoretical input on class, environments, and extractivist cultures. (The syllabus will be finalised towards the end of the break: please check further announcements on Stud.IP, because whilst many readings will be provided on Stud.IP, you will be required to purchase/have access to some books.)
