Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

TRANSLATION STUDIES (dr Dorota Guttfeld)

The course will prepare students for choosing a research topic and a theoretical framework for the analysis of a selected literary or audiovisual translation. In the summer semester, the seminar will be centred around in-class presentations of students' progress and individual meetings with the supervisor. Students will select and investigate a problem within the field of Translation Studies with the use of methodologies accepted and recognised in the discipline. Thesis-related issues will be developed under the guidance of the supervisor, who will offer help in narrowing down the topic, finding relevant sources, and applying the selected theoretical approach. The proposed spectrum of topics covers linguistic, functionalist, cultural and reception-focused aspects of literary and audiovisual translation. Students are also encouraged to perform and describe their own translations. The preliminary results of the student's research or their ongoing translation project will be presented to the group. During a series of individual meetings with the supervisor, the thesis will be gradually submitted for review and correction.

LITERARY STUDIES (dr Joanna Antoniak)

The aim of this seminar is to aid students in preparing and writing a bachelor’s thesis in the field of literary studies. The seminar will help students formulate the topic of their thesis, choose appropriate and fitting methodological approach and, finally, conduct analysis and interpretation of selected literary works.

During the summer semester, the course will focus predominantly on three aspects: the introduction of selected approaches in literary studies (race theory and postcolonial studies, postmodernism and posthumanism, ecocriticism, and disability studies; the range of topics can be adjusted to the research interests of the students), monitoring students's research and writing progress (during both individual and group meetings), and helping the students prepare for their thesis defence.

The course is supplemented by a Moodle course.

CULTURAL STUDIES (dr Nelly Strehlau)

This seminar aims to help students narrow down their field of interest and write a bachelor's thesis on English-language texts of culture, with a particular focus on television, film or other media. The seminar will help students choose an appropriate methodological approach and subsequently use it in analysis and interpretation of individually selected cultural texts.

In summer semester, the class will be centred around individual meetings to monitor progress of students' research and writing and prepare them for thesis defense and group workshops to discuss progress, collaborate, present one's research and (time permitting) discuss additional assigned readings.

The course is supplemented by a Moodle course.

EXPERIMENTAL LINGUSTICS (dr Marek Placiński)

BA seminar is focused on the selection of problems that the student will pursue in their BA study based on literature review, calibrate methodology to these problems; formulate research questions and hypotheses that will organise their study.

This part of the BA seminar is specifically focused on the students’ completing empirical part of their studies and finalising their BA studies.

• Conducting empirical studies

• Analysing the obtained results – qualitatively and quantitively

• Discussing the results

The scope and range of topics will be adjusted to the research interests of the students.

For volunteers: assistance with experiments run by Center for Language Evolution studies; learning the eye-tracking, motion-capture and GSR technology.
