​This seminar discusses Gaza as an example for the long-term historical development of cities in historical Syria and Palestine and in the wider Eastern Mediterranean region. In contemporary public discourse, Gaza tends to be characterized solely as a theater of ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, while the city and its region has been largely neglected in academic scholarship.
The Gaza Strip, a narrow stretch of land between the Mediterranean Sea, Egypt and Israel, is one of the most crowded places on the globe and its population is facing a severe humanitarian crisis. The history of Gaza and its plight today are usually related to the outcome of the 1948 War in which the Strip was first created and became the residence of Palestinian refugees. However, Gaza’s importance in earlier periods reached far beyond the territory of the ‘Strip’, since the city was an important hub for people, goods and ideas in the Eastern Mediterranean from Antiquity until the 20th century. From 1517 through the First World War, it was the central pillar of Ottoman rule over southern Palestine. It is especially from this period that we have a wealth of archival and literary sources on Gaza, most of which still await in-depth study.
The seminar’s central question is how to understand the interplay between a specific local context and broader trends of Eastern Mediterranean history. Essays and term papers shall discuss aspects of Gaza’s history in comparison to other Eastern Mediterranean cities.

The advent of mass-schooling in the 19th century and nation-building across the world have been deeply intertwined. However, with increasing globalisation and cross-border dynamics both affecting and reflecting schooling patterns, the national paradigma seems to come into question more than ever. But is this still so if one considers these phenomena systematically and historically, and what do these processes mean for schools and their protagonists today?

In this seminar we will examine this and related questions by first examining formal schooling as an institution of the nation-state from a historical perspective. We will then move to sociological, anthropological, and comparative education approaches to understand contemporary schooling in the context of globalisation and transnationalisation of everyday lives of people crossing manifold borders. With the help of foundational texts and empirical examples, we will look closely at processes of internationalisation, transnationalisation, Europeanisation and globalisation in formal schooling and what these mean for the different actors and stakeholders involved. Finally, we will interpret research data together and examine school typologies and profiles with the help of online data collection methods.

Basic knowledge of qualitative research techniques and academic work.
Active participation in the seminar + a term paper (max. 5 pages).

The use and analysis of data to enhance learning and teaching is currently receiving a lot of interest and attention. Data from digital learning environments as well as information and communication technologies can be used and analysed automatically and with a high degree of variety and granularity. When data is used to support teaching and learning processes, the term „learning analytics“ is often used.
In this course, concrete learning analytics dashboards will be analysed, interpreted and designed by students. Based on current research, aspects relevant to the use of learning analytics will be discussed in detail; possible challenges in the implementation and use of analytics will be identified; and examples of a wide variety of visualisations and dashboards will be collected, presented and interpreted. One focus will be on the use of such dashboards in the school context. Students will work their way through different steps, e.g. developing, discussing and evaluating pen-and-paper prototypes, creating wireframes and analysing real dashboards. The knowledge gained throughout the course will be used to design (i.e. conceptualise, not program) a dashboard.
The course will be conducted in English. All literature will be announced and distributed during the course (and will be in English as well).
for UNIC participants:

3 CP for regular and active participation during the classes, group work, final presentation of the dashboard project during class

This 4-hour course shall introduce M.A. students of the M.A. Program to the subject 'religious studies'. This will be done in the first part of the course by presenting and discussing key terms and concepts central to the scientific approach towards religion. These include aspects and dimensions such as:

  • the definition (and deconstruction) of the 'religion', along with the concepts of 'belief' and the 'sacred;
  • the cognitive dimension of religion: religious knowledge as institutionalized in myths, dogmas or elaborate (theological) reflexions;
  • the aesthetic dimension of religion: religious experiences in the context of material culture
  • the practical dimension of religion: ritual, magic or ethical conduct of life;
  • the social dimension of religion: religious roles and instituions;
  • the chronological dimension of religion: concepts and questions upon the possible 'evolution of religion'

In the second part of the course, Lecturers from CERES will present their current research projects.

The course consists of recorded lectures that can be viewed via Moodle, Literature to be prepared for each session, and online meetings (to be announced via Moodle). Students will get credits for this course by uploading hand-ins for each week and passing a written or oral exam at the end.

Cultural and religious communities, and particularly minorities, can only live with dignity if they
have a “space.” To literally make space for people is a prerequisite for living together in our diverse
urban centers. If dignity includes the possibility of self-determined action, these spaces must be
designable and usable in a self-determined way.
This class focuses on politically, socially, and spatially marginalized communities in the urban
centers of the UNIC universities and their access to dignified spaces. Of particular interest are
cultural and religious communities that come to Europe through migration and international linkages
and that need specific places and spaces that serve as meeting places to preserve cultural and
religious identity. While the traditional church buildings in the inner cities are often used less and
less for religious purposes, migrant communities only find space in the periphery of the cities – in
former factory halls or as ‘subtenants’ in other church buildings.
This seminar aims to capture and make visible different perspectives on space and dignity of cultural
or religious communities in diverse European cities. Students will locate and visit religious
and cultural minorities in their respective hometowns. They will talk to people, take pictures, or
record audio-visual data. In case of pandemic restrictions, they will reach these communities
online. As such, the communities will be offered spaces to talk about their search for the space that
enables them to live with dignity in their (new) neighborhoods. We aim to compare the situation
in four cities (Cork, Rotterdam, Bochum, and Istanbul) and thus expand our analytical horizons of
spaces of dignity.
At Ruhr-Universität Bochum, this class is open to all students in religious studies, and broadly
related study programs, as well as the Optionalbereich.

​The Dzogchen teachings, often translated as the “Great Perfection,” first appeared in Tibetan literature in Dunhuang manuscripts from the 10th century, and were further elaborated and systematized by Tibetan Buddhist masters over the centuries before the teachings became popular among Chinese Buddhists in the 20th and 21st centuries (also transmitted by Chinese Buddhist masters). The Dzogchen teachings have developed a particular form of meditation practice that focuses on all beings’ inherent state of awareness beyond duality and conceptual elaborations. Key concepts such as immediacy and effortlessness have led to the doctrine being repeatedly polemicized in Tibet and put in the same breath as Chinese Chan Buddhism. The very similarities that remind Sinitic Buddhists of concepts such as non-action (Chin. wuwei) and sudden enlightenment (Chin. dunwu) may have contributed to the popularity of the teaching in Chinese Buddhist circles in the 20th and 21st centuries. The seminar will introduce the core doctrinal content and examine transmission traditions and dissemination as far away as China.

Basic knowledge of Buddhism is beneficial. If interested srudents do not have basic knowledge, they can contact the lecturer and will be recommended preparatory literature (carmen.meinert@rub.de)

​The seminar challenges the notion of post-modern cities as secular or post-religious spaces and points to an academic study of the diverse intricacies between religion (in its multiple forms and conceptions) and current urban settlements. From the analysis of common concepts as diversity, migration, religious identity, or spirituality, it intertwines urban, religious, and migration theories. Furthermore, it examines cities as places of religious pluralization and co-existence of identities at the time of hosting secular and religious institutions which shape daily social dynamics.

From a global perspective, the seminar studies the migratory religious landscape of the Ruhr region in West Germany and the Basque Country in Spain. It also analyzes the social and religious dynamics among Christian and Muslim groups in urban Tanzania, the Latin-American religious identities in the European and North-American diaspora, international Pentecostal networks in Singapore and other mega-cities the oppression of African traditional religiosities in Brazil, and the marginalization-empowerment dynamics of Pentecostal Dalit women communities in India, among other similar examples.

​Both the concept of race and the racism are backed by a long-standing tradition and still affecting our lives today. But what is race; does it exist; is it a biological feature, a social construct, or even something else? And what is racism; what are its harms and why are they morally wrong; how does it differ from other forms of discrimination, oppression, marginalization or the like? Should we keep using racial language? These are some of the questions we will tackle in this course. The course reading covers classic philosophical texts on the concept of race and most recent normative theories about the race and racism.

Das Forschungsseminar fragt nach dem Beitrag der Digitalität für die Literatur, indem es sich Konzepten und Projekten zuwendet, die digitale Literatur begrifflich konturieren oder aber ästhetisch erproben. Im Fokus stehen keineswegs nur digital erzeugte und rezipierbare Daten, sondern auch in Papierform publizierte Texte, die gleichwohl zentrale Phänomene und Operationen des Digitalen mit den Mitteln der gedruckten Schrift sich anzueignen versuchen. Das Seminar wird sich einer historischen Aufarbeitung des Feldes widmen und die auf die früheren Diskurse der Hypertextualität sowie der Netzliteratur sichten. Es wird sich auch mit den aktuellen Positionen der Literaturwissenschaft und Essayistik befassen und beleuchten, wie sie die digitale Gegenwart perspektivieren. Vor allem aber soll die Veranstaltung dazu genutzt werden, die Projekte der Seminarteilnehmer:innen vorzustellen und zu diskutieren.

Josiah Ober once identified the 5th century BC to be the birthplace of Political Science. In many ways, ancient material is interpreted by Political Scientists, and sometimes, it becomes rather important in their reasoning.

In this course, we will take a look at several examples how antiquity features in international Political Science. We shall discuss where the potentials of these approaches lie, and perhaps wherein lie inherent limitations, in order to broaden our common historical perspective.

The language in class will be English, as will be the majority of the material we discuss.

Calls for democracy to be more than a vote every four or five years are as old as the modern parliamentary system itself. This seminar will explore how various forms of direct and participatory democracy have challenged parliamentary supremacy from the late nineteenth century to this day. The key question to be addressed in this regard is under what circumstances democracy welcomed more input from below and when it sought to restrain popular participation. The focus will therefore be on both moments of upheaval and democratic renewal and (often subsequent) periods of democratic retrenchment. In doing so, the seminar will question whether democratization was a linear process of over ever greater popular participation and probe the extent to which democracy from above and democracy from below have historically been in conflict.

Recent elections result have shown an increasing rural-urban divide, with the countryside increasingly swinging towards populist and anti-European positions and metropolitan areas moving in the opposite direction. This seminar will go back to the roots of that divide in post-war Europe and explore how relations between cities and countryside have evolved from 1945 onwards. Topics to be addressed include food security for urban workers, migration from countryside to city, state (and European) subsidies on agricultural produce, and the effects of the emergence of the environmental movement. The aim is for students to obtain a deeper understanding of how conflict and compromise between rural and urban interests have shaped, and continue to shape, present-day Europe.

​This course offers an introduction to the culture and society of Spain, so that students can become familiar with the social and political structure of the country today. The plan of action will focus on some specific aspects that make Spain both appealing and rich: its recent political history to the settlement of democracy; its political and administrative organization, which, through its autonomic state, has tried to give a solution to the chronic clash of all identities and nationalities in Spain; the current Spanish society and all its different aspects: youth, immigration, women in society, education, civil rights…; art in Spain in all its different aspects, from cinema to painting, from literature to music…

Compositionality is a key concept in linguistics, the philosophy of mind and language, and throughout the cognitive sciences. Understanding how it works is a central element of syntactic and semantic analysis, and a challenge for models of cognition. In this seminar, we will read papers on the state of the art in all aspects of the subject from every relevant field. They reveal the connections in different lines of research, and highlight its most challenging problems and opportunities. The force and justification of compositionality have long been contentious. First proposed by Frege as the notion that the meaning of an expression is syntax-dependently determined by the meaning of its parts, it has since been deployed as a constraint on the relation between theories of syntax and semantics, as a means of analysis, and, more recently, as underlying the structures of representational systems such as mental concepts, computer programs and neural architectures. This seminar explores these and many other dimensions of one of the most exciting fields in the study of language and cognition.
Aside from active participation, participants will be expected to give a presentation in English. Assistance regarding the English language will be provided.

​Eine große Herausforderung des Studiums der Klassischen Philologie bildet die Verknüpfung des erworbenen Wissens um die antike Literatur mit der Lebenswirklichkeit des griechischen und römischen Mittelmeerraumes. In gleicher Weise sehen sich Studierende der Alten Geschichte sowie der Klassischen Archäologie häufig mit einem Mangel an Detailwissen über die vielfältige antike Literatur konfrontiert. Dieser grundsätzliche Bedarf an Ergänzungen des eigenen Blickwinkels in den drei Disziplinen der Altertumswissenschaften bildet zugleich den Ausgangspunkt für die Durchführung dieser Sachübung, welche vom Seminar für Klassische Philologie in Kooperation mit Dozenten der Alten Geschichte und der Klassischen Archäologie angeboten wird. Die Veranstaltung richtet sich somit an Studierende aller drei Fächer, welche im gegenseitigen Austausch ihren eigenen fachspezifischen Standpunkt erweitern sollen.
Im Zentrum der Sachübung soll dabei die Arbeit an verschiedenen Exponaten der Kunst-sammlungen der Ruhr-Universität stehen, deren Bedeutung jeweils aus philologischer, historischer sowie archäologischer Perspektive untersucht und diskutiert wird. Die für die Veranstaltung ausgewählten Exponate sollen ein möglichst breit gefächertes Bild des öffentlichen Lebens im antiken Mittelmeerraum vermitteln und reichen dementsprechend von Herrscherstatuen über das repräsentative Interieur römischer Villen bis hin zu gewöhnlichen Alltagsgegenständen.

​Die Übung gibt einen Überblick über die antike Literaturgeschichte nach Epochen und Gattungen, vermittelt Kenntnisse über antike Konzepte von Literatur und Kanonbildung sowie über verschiedene Formen der Literaturgeschichtsschreibung. Zudem werden epochenspezifische kulturelle Hintergründe und Entstehungs- und Rezeptionsbedingungen (‚Sitz im Leben‘) zentraler Texte der griechischen und lateinischen Literatur diskutiert und die wichtigsten modernen Literaturtheorien (Strukturalismus, Narratologie, Intertextualität, Dekonstruktion, New Historicism, Rezeptionsästhetik) vorgestellt, um aus den theoretischen Reflexionen über Literatur Interpretationsansätze für antike Texte zu gewinnen. Grundfragen der Literaturwissenschaft zur Definition, Funktion und Wirkungsabsichten von Literatur werden ebenso besprochen wie Aspekte der Gattungsbezogenheit bestimmter Theorien und Probleme der Kompatibilität von historisch verschiedenen Literaturkonzepten. Alle in der Übung behandelten antiken Texte werden zweisprachig zur Verfügung gestellt.

​Die Veranstaltung weist eine aufeinander aufbauende, thematische Zweiteilung in innere und äußere Sprachgeschichte auf, wobei der Schwerpunkt insgesamt auf der lateinischen Sprache liegt und Erläuterungen zur griechischen Sprache punktuell erfolgen. In der ersten Semesterhälfte werden sprachwissenschaftliche Terminologie, Entwicklung des griechischen und lateinischen Alphabets, Phonologie, Morphologie, Betonungsregeln und Metrik erarbeitet, wobei v.a. die anwendungsorientierte Einübung breiten Raum erhalten soll. Die zweite Semesterhälfte besteht aus einem kurzen Überblick über die indogermanische Sprachgeschichte, die Behandlung von Lautwandel und Sprachstufen sowie das Fortwirken der lateinischen und griechischen Sprache in Mittelalter und modernen Fremdsprachen, wobei die praktische Arbeit an ausgewählten Originaltexten (u.a. Inschriften, Plautus, Sallust, Petron, Bibel) im Zentrum steht. Der Kurs wird in einem Hybridformat aus synchronen und asynchronen Unterrichtseinheiten durchgeführt.

Ob hundertarmige Riesen, einäugige Kyklopen, lüsterne Kentauren, phantastische Pferdegeier, die schlangenköpfige Medusa, der bocksbeinige Pan, die rätselhafte Sphinx oder der menschenfressende Minotauros – seit archaischer Zeit bevölkern Mischwesen die antike Kunst und Literatur. Mischwesen sind zumeist ambivalent, sie stellen Versuche dar, Nicht-Sichtbares sichtbar und Unerklärliches fassbar zu machen; sie kennzeichnen (religiöse) Ursprungserzählungen, sie erzeugen eine unheimliche Stimmung und sie haben oft apotropäische Wirkung. Mit einem Wort, Mischwesen faszinieren. In der Vorlesung werden Mischwesen in Texten aus allen Gattungen und Epochen der antiken Literatur(geschichte) auf ihre unterschiedlichen Funktionen und Wirkungen befragt und mit einem besonderen Fokus auf ihre poetologischen Bedeutungen und ästhetischen Beurteilungen vorgestellt. Alle besprochenen Texte werden zweisprachig mit einer deutschen Übersetzung zur Verfügung gestellt.

​“Ethical challenges in the global world” invites the student to reflect critically about the global world in which we live, and on the economic, political, cultural, religious and ecological consequences derived from the globalization process. The aim is to develop in students an awareness of the ethical challenges intrinsic to this process (such as economic and social injustice, intercultural coexistence, the protection or violations of human rights, or climate change), and an understanding of different analyses and positions surrounding these challenges. Students will be participate in a variety of dilemmas and problem solving activities that allow them to make meaning of these issues in their own terms, and guide then on how to advance coherent and persuasive arguments. The ultimate goal of the course is to prepare students to contribute, both as professional in their respective fields and as citizens of the global world, to the construction of a more just, humane and caring world.

​The Basque Country, Euskal Herria, is a region located in Northern Spain and Southern France. Its language, of unknown origins, is not related to any other linguistic family. The Basques have kept a distinct and unique culture, one of the oldest in Europe. The history of the Basque Country has come a long way from the ancient times before the Roman conquest of the Peninsula to the present day. What we can see nowadays is a highly modernized European region which is going through a promising time. This course provides students with an introduction to the Basque culture and basic oral and written skills in Euskara (Basque language). Students will have the chance to get started in linguistic skills in Basque and to discover several relevant topics in Basque culture and society: geography, history, the rural world and myths, music, sports…

Migration is a crucial and dynamic part of human life. International migration ranges from voluntary migration of high skilled labor migrants up to forced migration of refugees. Even in times of global mobility, international migrants always pass by specific places. Therefore, the course focuses on transnational relations caused by migration in postindustrial cities. This course starts from (1) elaborating some basic social mechanisms that structure international migration since long, then (2) addresses the history and current relevance of migration in postindustrial cities of the UNIC network (https://www.unic.eu) and (3) finally gives opportunities to deepen in selected aspects of transnational relations and organizations caused by or inducing migration.

This Master-course is part of the joint efforts of 8 European universities, integrated in the UNIC network (https://www.unic.eu), to coordinate and innovate their teaching and researching activities. Therefore, Master students of all 8 UNIC universities are welcome to participate in this course. One basic idea is to deal with all the main topics mentioned before in a comparative perspective by taking the cities of the UNIC universities (Bilbao, Bochum, Cork, Istanbul, Liege, Oulu, Rotterdam, Zagreb; according to corresponding participation of students from that locales) as points of reference.

The course is organized based on a blended learning concept: there will be a one day onsite meeting at the RUB Campus on 4th of April, then weekly hybrid meetings until end of semester, when a second onsite day on Friday 22nd of July 2022. Participants have the chance to define specific research questions and work on that in teams – group work will be presented on the last onsite day.


The course is for Master students; advanced Bachelor students could participate after prior consultation.

Active participation in 1 onsite meeting, regular participation in weekly sessions onsite or digitally (each Tuesday 10-12 CET, 05.04.-19.07.2022); zoom and Moodle access will be sent via eCampus or email to all registered and accepted participants.

In this course we analyze contemporary Latin America from an integrative social science perspective (including economic, social and political aspects).
From the economic point of view, although one could have conceived Latin America as an ensemble with more or less the same problems, challenges and destiny during the period of industrialization by import substitution (1930-1980), nowadays it is not possible to find a unique mode of development in the continent. While some theoretical perspectives posit a single model of capitalism, the structuralist schools propose the existence of a variety of capitalisms in both developed countries and Latin America.
In this course, we will first discuss the different ways in which the development (or lack of) has been analyzed by different schools of thought. We will then analyze the different types of capitalism that exist in this continent. Not all of Latin American countries produce and export the same products, some of them produce commodities, others produce manufactured products and still others services. We will thus focus on the different productive structures and in the manner in which this determines and affects the integration of different countries to the world economy.
In the second part of this course we will discuss the social and political situation of Latin America. We will analyze the different structures of the State and of their Welfare States, in various countries. We will then discuss the most recent and important social movements (trade unions, popular, indigenous, feminist, LGBTQ movements) and their relations to politics. We will discuss the transnational structures and fluxes in the continent, especially the migratory currents from the South to the North, but also among several countries of the continent, and those within borders (e.g. from Venezuela to Colombia).
Finally, we deal with the puzzle that some of the left governments, such as Venezuela and Nicaragua, have derived into dictatorships, while others, such as the governments of the PT and the Peronist party in Argentina have succeeded to maintain themselves within the democratic scheme. And also, what the recent triumph of the left party coalition in Chile means.

​Business management professionals must be familiar with the different functional areas of the organization, including marketing. This subject is built on the two previous subjects in the marketing area, "Marketing Fundamentals" and "Operational Marketing", in which both strategic and operational marketing decisions have been covered. This course aims to go one step further, reviewing both the philosophy and elements, as well as the process of creating a marketing plan and a business canvas, always under a much broader concept such as the business corporate plan. The focus of this subject with respect to the business plan and the marketing plan has a clear market orientation, as the only way to achieve the success and growth of the organizations. Both plans therefore become guidelines for achieving the business objectives of growth and profitability on the one hand, and the satisfaction (adding value) of the different actors involved in the market, on the other, taking into account global markets and the social responsibility of Business.

Taking this course assumes that the student has assimilated the basic concepts related to the marketing area:
● The differences between strategic marketing and operational marketing.
● The management of the four tools of the marketing mix: product / service, price, promotion, and
distribution.

A key characteristic of our globalized economy and society is the inter-connectedness of different places, which are tied together by global markets and trends. Yet the specific characteristics of each city, region or country remain critical in determining how their companies and people can navigate the opportunities and threats of a globalized world. This module is built on the premise that geography is important for business development and for achieving social goals. It aims to develop understanding and critical analysis of the factors that help and/or hinder territories to be economically competitive and to generate wellbeing for their citizens.
The module is structured in three sections. In the first section we will explore the key concepts of globalization, competitiveness, and governance as context for understanding what it means for territories to be competitive in a global economy. This will open our thinking to different perspectives on socioeconomic development and help us to understand the links between competitiveness at the business and territorial levels. The link between business and territorial competitiveness is developed further in the second section, which is focused on exploring the role that geographically concentrated clusters of firms and other agents play in shaping territorial competitiveness. The final section then deepens understanding of the key territorial relationships that drive competitiveness by studying the concept of innovation systems and focusing on the role that government policy can play in fostering innovative and competitive territories.

This course provides an introduction to the overarching concepts of constitutional law in a comparative fashion. It draws on the political and legal systems of the United States, China, Brazil, the United Kingdom, France and Germany, in order to highlight differences and similarities across a diversity of constitutional traditions. During this course, you will (i) become acquainted with the fundamental features of the systems of government referred above; (ii) acquire insights about recent philosophical discussions on judicial review and the different ways in which it can be designed; (iii) reflect on how features of the constitutional systems referred above may help to explain and understand current social phenomena (e.g. political polarization); and (iv) reflect on whether and how traditional concepts of constitutional law may be revised in order to cope with recent developments in the global and transnational arena.This course has a strong inter-disciplinary character. At the same time in which it will draw on traditional doctrinal analyses of constitutional law, it will also draw on relevant side-literature, especially of constitutional theory and of political, social and legal philosophy.​

It is no exaggeration to say that liberal constitutionalism is in crisis. Modern societies have been for a long time permeated by strong political and moral disagreements. With the rise of populism and nationalist politics in Europe, US and beyond, the situation seems to have become radicalized in recent years. Disagreements are now so widespread that the very basic notions of democracy and of political community are at stake. This raises a number of questions about the nature and purpose of politics, its relation to law, as well as the function of legal and political institutions.

In order to discuss these questions, this course will introduce you to the works of various legal, political and social philosophers about controversial topics such as freedom of expression and speech, pornography, hate speech, abortion, euthanasia, fake news as well as to seminal texts about the nature of democracy and rights in liberal and non-liberal traditions (e.g. communitarianism).

This seminar aims to introduce students to the "Law and Literature" movement in contemporary legal scholarship. In the first and introductory part of the course, we will discuss the main directions of this field of study: "Law in Literature" (which explores the phenomenon of law as well as issues of legal philosophy in literary texts) and "Law as Literature" (which aims to contribute to the study of law in the form of a literary text). Finally, we will discuss some critical reactions regarding these projects. In this part, we will learn about and examine the views of significant figures in the legal and literary movements (e.g., Benjamin Cardozo, James Boyd White, Jane Baron, Martha Nussbaum), including famous legal philosophers (e.g., Ronald Dworkin, Richard Posner). In the second and central part of the seminar, we will adopt the perspective of "Law in Literature" and "Law as Literature" to literary and legal texts, respectively. We will assume the "Law in Literature" perspective and discuss a selection of literary texts - novels and short stories of the 21rst century concerning legal or legal-philosophical issues (e.g., Bernhard Schlink, Juli Zeh, Ferdinand von Schirach). Furthermore, we will adopt the "Law as Literature" perspective to examine a selection of recent (sometimes curious) court decisions. We will finalize the seminar with a general discussion of whether and how works of literary fiction (such as those discussed in the seminar) can contribute to legal thought and practice, and the

potential of literary analysis of legal texts for jurisprudence. The seminar will be held in English.

During the seminar, we will read and discuss a new selection of theoretical, literary, and legal texts. Therefore, the course is open to both students who have already taken part in "Law and Jurisprudence" courses at RUB (in winter term of 2019/2020 or winter term 2021/2022) and would like to further extend their knowledge in this field, as well as to those students who have not taken part in those seminars and have no prior knowledge about "Law and Literature" movement.

The purpose of the course is to expose students to the social, political, economic and legal issues that influence women’s position in the society and to provide a comprehensive understanding of the underlying societal structures and power relations that define and influence women’s ability to enjoy their human rights.

The course offers a synthesis of sociology and law (more precisely, of that part of legal studies that deals with women's rights as a particular subset of human rights). It offers an initial overview of the sociological approaches to the study of women in society, which should equip students with the capacity to critically analyze women's positions within the societal institutions of law, work, education and politics. Subsequently, it introduces women’s human rights, equipping the students with knowledge on both the main international women's human rights instruments and domestic legislative norms that prescribe gender equality.

The course focuses on various substantive areas of rights - from the right to political representation, across the right to education and health (including reproductive health), to sexual violence, prostitution and sex trafficking. Finally, the overall purpose of this course is to increase students’ competence to examine and apply the human rights framework through the lens of gender equality.

This course is taught through a combination of lectures, class discussions, group work and guest lectures.


Topics that are discussed during the course are:


·         The sociology of women and gender: overview of theories and basic sociological concepts

·         Feminist legal theory

·         History of women’s rights as human rights

·         Women’s rights as human rights: legal instruments

·         The right to political representation and public decision-making

·         The right to work

·         Reproductive and health rights of  women

·         The right to protection against violence and abuse: sexual violence, prostitutuion and sex trafficking

·         Guaranteeing equal access of women to justice

·         Combating gender stereotyping and sexism and achieving gender mainstreaming in all policy areas

Upon completion of the course, the students create competencies in an entrepreneurship context. They can recognize, understand and plan how to grasp business opportunities and solve business problems, and evaluate possible solutions. The students can improve their entrepreneurial, business environment analysis and business planning skills, as well as problem solving, communicating and presentation capabilities. They learn to carry out individual assignments, share the work and results and deal with feedback.
The students work alone and in small groups to learn both general approaches and specific means of entrepreneurship, such as business analysis, planning and business model evaluation processes, lean and agile entrepreneurship methods, market and customer management, branding and basic financial and other resources management. They get also used to gather and analyze relevant data, present and justify ideas and plans, and respond to external and internal feedback.

Autonomous robotics is an interdisciplinary research field in which embodied systems equipped with their own sensors and with actuators generate behavior that is not completely pre-programmed. Autonomous robotics thus entails perception, movement generation, as well as core elements of cognition such as making decisions, planning, and integrating multiple constraints.

This course touches on various approaches to this interdisciplinary problem. In the first half of the course, the main emphais will be on dynamical systems methods for generating movement in vehicles.  The main focus of the course is, however, on solutions to autonomous movement generation that are inspired by analogies with how nervous systems generate movement. The second half of the course will review core problems in human movement  science, including the degree of freedom problem, coordination, motor control, and the relex control of muscles.


The emphasis of the course is on learning concepts, practicing interdisciplinary scholarship including reading and writing at a scientific and technical level. Mathematical concepts are used throughout, so understanding these concepts is important. Mathematical skills are not critical to mastering the material, but helpful. The mathematics is mostly from the qualitative theory of dynamical systems, attractors and their instabilities. Short tutorials on some of these concepts will be provided.
