Cíle předmětu
The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the latest developments in the research of the discipline in question, and add an international dimension to their education. The course offers an introduction to current trends in linguistic and cultural studies of the relevant cultural area. Courses are typically taught by visiting professors as semester courses or intensive courses. In order to enhance student mobility, students can also take courses on relevant subject matters at foreign universities. The relevance of the courses taken at a foreign university will be assessed by the guarantor of the program. As examples of courses let me use the Intensive courses offered at the Department of English and American Studies this fall semester: ‘O say, can you smell?’: American Studies as Olfactory Studies Dr. Thomas Clark (University of Frankfurt, Germany) Canadian Nationalism Prof. Richard Nimijean (Carleton University, Canada) Topics in Digital Research Dr. Amy Earhart (Texas A&M University, USA)
