Get Off Your Sea, Let's Meet and Greet!
Are you new in Tübingen? Do you plan to study in the U.S.? How about an easy way to break the ice and chat with both Germans and Americans?
This virtual interdisciplinary seminar series on "Bodies, Power, Norms" is organised by the University's Center for Gender and Diversity Research (ZGD) and the Tübingen Research Alums Center (TRACe). It provides an opportunity to explore the complex politics of the body, and to think through the ways in which these intersect with race, class, age, gender, and sexuality. During the course of the seven seminar sessions, our international speakers, many of whom are alumni of the English seminar in Tübingen, will be taking a closer look at the norms that seek to determine the boundaries of the body and discuss the consequences of bodily transgressions in the context of pornography, art, music, dance and movement.
ECTS points for students of the University of Tübingen: By attending the talks and submitting an essay on a chosen topic, students can obain 1 ECTS point. See the seminar details on alma. In the course catalogue (Vorlesungsverzeichnis) you will find the seminar under Gesamtverzeichnis Lehrveranstaltungen Anglistik/Amerikanistik / Zusätzliche Veranstaltungen (Vorträge, Schlüsselqualifikationen).
