In this course, students will have an opportunity to develop and practise their written competence in English by investigating text types typically found in cultural and media-related professions and by writing texts of their own for use at conferences and in professional contexts requiring cross-cultural exchange. Text types produced will include summaries, reviews, reports, critiques and articles for publication in literary or cultural journals as well as position papers and promotional material linked to cooperation between cultural institutions from English- and German-speaking countries (including translation). Particular attention will be given to accuracy of expression, appropriacy of style and to cultural and discoursal dimensions of professional written English. Maximal 15 Teilnehmer
