Semester Frühjahrsemester 2021

Dozierende Andrew Shields (andrew.shields@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt The title of the course says what it's about: writing 111 words a day throughout the semester. Every day, all the participants will choose a topic and write 111 words in English about that topic - no more, no less, exactly 111 words. Each day's text should make a specific claim about that day's topic. Students can choose their topics from any university course they are taking (or have taken), as well as from cultural, political, or social issues that come up during the semester. While this will involve of a lot of creativity, your focus should be on criticism in a broad sense, and not on creative writing (poetry, fiction, drama). [That's 111 words.]
The daily texts will be posted to ADAM for us to read. Class time will involve writing new texts as well as discussions of selected texts. - This course is an experiment. The instructor and the participants will work together to decide what to do with the texts and how to discuss them. The only thing that is set in stone is the project: 111 words a day, from the first day of class to the last. - It was going to be 100 words a day, because one of the course's goals is to work on concision and precision - but 111 is a much cooler number: eine Schnapszahl, but also charmingly arbitrary. [That's 111 words.]
One student's 111-word description of the course: "Before I started the 111-words project, I thought that writing exactly 111 words would be quite difficult because I am not particularly fond of 'strict' forms. As it turns out, the number of words is the part I struggle with the least. Having to write an interesting and well-thought-out text every day is a much bigger problem. I was never aware of how much thinking a text requires until I had to fit my ideas into the limited space of 111 words. I've learned that the thought process behind a text, especially a short one that forces you to focus on what's essential, is often more time-consuming than actually writing it."
Lernziele To work on writing every day.
Literatur There is no reading list for the course. The instructor and the participants will read what the participants themselves write for the course.
