Teaching methods

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.

The formal lectures contain many examples and group analyses where active student participation is required. The practical exercises are designed to make students take an interactive approach to the reading of four theoretical texts, under the supervision of a teaching assistant. 
Evaluation methods

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.

The examination is in written form and is in two parts : answers to questions requiring a knowledge and in-depth understanding of course material and practical exercises and the presentation of individual work. The latter should show how different theoretical texts chosen from the course bibliography enable the student to answer a problem question. This text, of around 10,000 characters, should be based on the reading of a minimum of a hundred pages from three different theoretical texts.
The written work is to be submitted to the ROM Secretariat by Friday 12 December 2018 before 12h (January session) or by Friday 16 August 2019 before 12h (September session). Undelivered or delayed work results in an overall score of 0 / 20 on the exam.
Other information
Course material : a large bibliography, classified by themes ; a portfolio of reference articles ; a detailed plan of the course ; an index with the main concepts.
Teaching team : The course and the workshops will be given by a multidisciplinary team of teachers (Germanists, Classics, Romanists) who will share the interventions out among themselves according to their skills.
