Inhalt Academic writing and reasoning are commonly understood as the most important skills developed in successful higher education. Writing journal articles, public lectures, research proposals and books are part of the daily routine of students and faculty who share knowledge amongst themselves. In addition, scholars from all disciplines contribute to the public understanding of science and scholarship through regular contributions of essays to newspaper feuilletons, trade journals and, increasingly, online media. Given that writing is one of our key concerns and certainly remains our main form of conducting and communicating research , advancing and refining writing skills among students on various levels and across academic disciplines is paramount.
This course will be taught in collaboration with the New York based writer and journalist Gaiutra Bahadur. Together, we will explore the ways in which we ground knowledge about the subjects, societies and histories we wish to represent in academic scholarship. We explore imaginative ways in which creative nonfiction writing can respond to the biases, silences and shortcomings in the representation of women, the poor, the enslaved, the indentured, the criminalised, or the disenfranchised. We’ll draw inspiration from nonfiction writing such as Saidiya Hartman’s Lose Your Mother, Stephen Greenblatt’s speculative Shakespeare biography Will in the World, Amitav Ghosh’s In an Antique Land, Natalie Zemon Davis’ Trickster Travels: A Sixteenth Century Muslim Between Worlds and Jill Lepore’s Book of Ages: The Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin.
For MA students, the seminar is a regular course, taking place each week throughout the semester. Doctoral students, who wish to subscribe to the course as part of their graduate school programme (Graduate School of Social Sciences; Graduate School of History), will join the course on the occasion of a block seminar (2 days-workshop; dates to be announced). Experiences in writing in English are a requirement for attending.

Literatur Those who wish to begin preparing for the course are invited to chose one of the following titles:
-Amitav Ghosh’s "In an Antique Land",
-Natalie Zemon Davis, "Trickster Travels: A Sixteenth Century Muslim Between Worlds"
-Jill Lepore "Book of Ages: The Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin".
