SURVEY OF BRITISH LITERATURES AND CULTURES (BRITF2): FINAL EXAM

Dear students,

As the end of the semester draws near, I would like to take the opportunity to inform you of the latest developments concerning the final exam.

Due to the severe hygienic regulations imposed by fighting the pandemic, I have had to search for a very large lecture hall to accommodate the students who have registered for the exam this semester. This took some time but was eventually successful so that you can sit the exam in presence.

Nevertheless, there are some significant changes to observe. Please accept my apologies for having to shift the date and the time for the exam.

The exam will not take place as scheduled on 27 August from 10:00 to 12:00 hrs at the Kesselhaus lecture hall but on 1 September 2020 from 12:00 to 13:30 hrs at the Hauptmensa (main student canteen) Studierendenwerk Hannover in Callinstraße 23, 30167 Hannover. The time for the final exam will be 60 minutes.

According to the rules at LUH, you are free to decide on short notice whether to sit the exam or not without having to present a sick note issued by a medical doctor.

Nevertheless, I would like to ask you to register informally with Hannah Pardey (hannah.pardey@engsem.uni-hannover.de) by 17 August 2020 telling her that you wish to sit the exam for sure.

The reason for this request is an ecological one. We will have to print eight sheets of paper for every one of the 228 registered students. This amounts to 1824 pages. Every set of exam papers not used because the registered student has not shown up will go to the waste.

Therefore, please help us to do our part to save our environment by registering informally with Hannah Pardey by 17 August 2020.

Thanks for your support, stay well, and best wishes,
Prof. Dr. Jana Gohrisch

INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS

Welcome to the summer term 2020 and our joint experiment in digital teaching and learning! You will find our course schedules on our learning platform Stud.IP where we have also uploaded all the assigned readings and materials. We have reduced the tasks, especially the non-graded course work (Studienleistung), to secure that you will be able to manage well. As to the graded course work (Prüfungsleistung), the department may shift the deadlines to allow you more time to write the term papers depending on when the libraries will re-open.

Our leaflet "Guidelines and Reading Material" (also uploaded for every course on Stud.IP) introduces you to British and Postcolonial literary studies, to non-graded course work and to writing term papers and final theses in this area. 

For office hours, please request a skype-, telephone- or Big Blue Button-meeting via e-mail. The times remain as given on the course schedules and on the website:

  • Prof. Dr. Jana Gohrisch: Tuesday, 12:00-13:00
  • Janna-Lena Neumann (M.Ed., M.A.): Monday, 15:00-16:00
  • Hannah Pardey (M.A.): Tuesday, 12:00-13:00

COURSEWORK CONSULTATIONS

This term, classes in British and Postcolonial Studies will be supplemented by an online tutoring system for written coursework. Hendrik Martens will be offering weekly coursework consultations which will assist you with any form and content of non-graded and graded course work (Studien- and Prüfungsleistungen).

These consultations will take place on

  • Mondays (9:30-10:30) in April/May
  • Mondays (9:30-11:00) and Tuesdays (9:30-11:00) in June/July

You should discuss the tentative topic, thesis statement, corpus, etc. for your graded term paper in this consultation first, where you will then be able to register for an individual consultation with your lecturer. The consultation form for this registration has to be filled in and approved in the consultation by 30 June 2020.

You are invited to attend further consultations as often as necessary during your writing process.

Due to the current situation there won't be any in-person meetings in the foreseeable future. At the moment, consultations can take place via email or Skype. We are looking into the possibility of adding Big Blue Button to this list.

In order to register for a video consultation, please send an email to Hendrik Martens, including the proposed date, your consultation form (filled out as far as possible) and your Skype name. He will then make an appointment with you and contact you during the consultation hours.

BRITISH AND POSTCOLONIAL STUDIES

Das Lehrgebiet British and Postcolonial Studies verfolgt einen breiten kulturwissenschaftlichen Ansatz unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der postkolonialen Forschung. Die Themen in der Lehre umfassen die Kulturen und Literaturen Großbritanniens von der Renaissance bis zur Gegenwart, insbesondere die Dramen Shakespeares, die Erzählliteratur des 18. bis 21. Jahrhunderts, die anglophonen Literaturen Afrikas, der Karibik und Indiens, Australiens und Neuseelands, Kanadas und Irlands, sowie die afrikanische und südasiatische Diaspora in Großbritannien. Ein besonderes Augenmerk liegt darüber hinaus auf der Ausbildung in den literatur- und kulturwissenschaftlichen Theorien und Methoden. 

Die Lehrenden engagieren sich sowohl in der Lehramtsausbildung im Fächerübergreifenden Bachelor und im Master of Education als auch in dem Fachmasterstudiengang Master of Advanced Anglophone Studies und dem interdisziplinären Master of Atlantic Studies in History, Culture and Society. Sie arbeiten dazu eng mit dem Historischen und Romanischen Seminar, dem Institut für Soziologie, dem Institut für Theologie und Religionswissenschaft sowie mit dem 2015 gegründeten Centre for Atlantic and Global Studies zusammen.
