Research seminar Biography & History
First semester 2019-2020, 10 ECTS, 10 lectures
Biography is increasingly enjoying considerable interest both inside and outside academia. Why is that and what is the role of biographies in academic and public debates?
This course provides an introduction to various theoretical approaches that can be distinguished within Biography Studies. Students are expected to study theoretical literature and discuss this literature in presentations, as well as biographies and biographical studies selected in consultation with the lecturer. Although the general approach of the course is interdisciplinary, the emphasis will be on the historical approach. Students are expected to write a paper based on one of the provided subjects.
