Fachtag Englisch "Ambiguities of Belonging" 12. Dezember 2019

The Fachtag Englisch took place on Thursday, 12 December 2019, at the University of Tübingen. During the day, a lecture and three workshops were grouped around the literarische Schwerpunktthema ‚Ambiguity of Belonging‘ for Abitur in Baden-Württemberg. In the morning, an introductory lecture  provided an overview of topics and theoretical discussions. Tom Franklin’s reading from his novel Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter at the Festsaal of the University was at the center of this teachers’ training day.
In the afternoon, three workshops  put a new spin on the literarische Schwerpunktthema ‚Ambiguity of Belonging‘ by juxtaposing academic insight and conceptual knowledge with teaching opportunities. Each workshop was headed by a team of professors and teachers/trainers. The topics served to expand on or differentiate existing teaching materials.
