Annotation

The Master's degree programme 'Teaching Literature in the Media' trains experts in contemporary literature and its teaching in the cultural sector. The degree course is based on four pillars: - In research-related literature and media studies teaching, it enables students to observe the constantly changing cultural field, and to recognise, name and assess new aspects. Individual and group mentorships provide close scientific support as well as early internal and out-of-university networking. - In a separate editorial training team, in internships and in joint research projects with permanent cooperation partners from renowned cultural institutions, professionally relevant skills are acquired that enable students to navigate a rapidly changing economic and media environment and to productively relate theory and practice to one other, also in tandem courses. - Literary-historical knowledge is imparted, because the present can only be understood by those who know about its prehistory and about comparative material from other eras and contexts: these will be jointly processed in innovative digital formats in cooperation with the Marburg Media Centre on the basis of audio-visual materials from publishers, radio, film and television. - The focus is on German-language literature from the Middle Ages to the present, but the comparative perspective is not neglected either. In transatlantic teaching and research projects, international cooperation, which is particularly indispensable in the field of literature, is also practised and experienced through (digital) exchanges. Research focuses: The Master's degree programme consists of the study areas of 'Literary Life and Media History', 'Literary, Cultural and Media Theory', 'Cultural Practice' and the 'Final Modules'. Particular emphasis is placed on an 'Editorial Training Team' teaching unit developed specifically for this degree course and a methodologically oriented scientific module dedicated to the question of how current streams in the contemporary literary field can be captured (and used) at all. In the practical module, students can choose between a traditional internship and a self-determined project.
