Semester Herbstsemester 2022
Angebotsmuster unregelmässig
Dozierende Moniek Kuijpers (moniek.kuijpers@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt In the past decades interest has grown in scientific approaches to aesthetic artefacts, may they be literary texts, visual artworks, films or even performances. This interest stems from a desire to investigate these aesthetic objects in a more rigorous, scientific way. The results of such investigations help us cultivate a deeper understanding of aesthetic phenomena and, perhaps more importantly, what they mean to individuals and societies.

This course is open for and aimed at BA and MA students from literary studies (or any specific language studies), theatre and film studies, visual arts, musicology and media and communication studies. Be advised that the course will be in English and that you will be asked to discuss, present and write in English.

The course comprises 4 block seminars.

The seminars take place on these days:
- Friday 23.09.2022 09:00 – 13:00
- Friday 21.10.2022 09:00 – 13:00
- Friday 18.11.2022 09:00 – 13:00
- Friday 16.12.2022 09:00 – 13:00

In between seminars you will work on developing your own empirical research project in groups, read up on empirical papers assigned to the reading list, and listen to a few online lectures on the topic. You can make an appointment to come in during office hours (Tuesday between 13:00 and 15:00 or Thursday between 10:00 and 12:00) to discuss your research project.

Students will give 3 presentations throughout the course, and provide peer feedback 3 times throughout the course. For each of these times, their participation in these activities will be assessed as either a pass or a fail, which at the end will be tallied up: a student needs at least 2 passes to pass the course.
Lernziele The overarching learning objective is to get acquainted with scientific methods for the humanities, to understand what makes a good empirical research question, a good experiment design, and what goes into designing and developing an empirical study on literature reception.
To achieve this aim, students will read up on scientific papers covering a range of relevant topics in the field of empirical literary studies, they will discuss these papers in class, develop their own empirical study in groups, present their work in progress and give feedback to other students' works in progress, and finally present their research plan at the end of the course in a powerpoint presentation.
Literatur The reading list for this course will be made available 2 to 3 weeks before class.


Teilnahmebedingungen The language of the course is English. Students need to be aware that they will have to present in English.
