Elizabeth Bronfen / 10 ECTS / Semester / English

The syllabus will focus on the manifold ways in which cultural discourse self-reflexively reflects on culture’s general conditions of existence. Students are expected to develop an increased awareness about the complexity of the contemporary world by dint of the critical conceptual tools of the discipline. They are encouraged to understand the epistemological formations of contemporaneity, to reflect critically on their different positions and to aptly and convincingly use the tools and the discourse of the scientific community.
