This subject consists of a 1-hour research skills tutorial and a 2-hour cultural studies seminar. Students will acquire fundamental research skills needed to complete a German major including the use of the library, online research resources and relevant bibliographical software. Students will learn to synthesise information from a range of scholarly sources. In the seminar, students will begin to engage with important cultural, literary and linguistic aspects of the German language countries via personal and public narratives and acquire a broader genre literacy. They will become aware of some of the formal properties of public discourse in German on cultural and historical issues. In their written and spoken German they will begin the transition to higher-level output such as the presentation of different points of view, and will be introduced to academic genres such as the German “Referat” (or class paper) and the literature review (in English).
