This lecture draws its content and definitions from various core authors, texts and academic dictionaries. The primary works to be discussed are meant to represent a broad array of fields that are culturally relevant to the seminar.

Shorter texts, such as poems, short stories, and secondary sources are provided on Moodle. However, certain artworks cannot be provided via Moodle and must either be purchased, retrieved from a library. However, crucial brief excerpts  will be made available to you as well. It is expected that students access these works and familiarise themselves with them. THESE TEXTS AND ARTWORKS WILL BE ANNOUNCED TO YOU AHEAD OF TIME and introduced as abstracts on Moodle. 

Students are expected to have read, watched, or played these primary works prior to their respective lecture session. They will be frequently referred to during their respective lecture sessions and be central to questions of the final exam, specifically the essay questions.

A full overview of all primary works and the dates of their respective lecture session is going to be provided via a syllabus on Moodle as soon as class begins, to give everyone the opportunity to access them on time.

Any theory topic field may be assessed in connection to any of the primary texts.

When composing the essay, students need to analyse the excerpt and to interpret it along the given guiding question. Students are expected to work with proper terminology as provided by the lecture, to apply all the knowledge they have about the primary text (i.e. refer to other passages from the text as they see fit), and to follow the very basic rules of essay writing (provide an introduction, a main body of arguments, and a conclusion).
