Course Description

This module surveys English literature and culture from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century. Its aim is to acquaint students with the issues and debates which have informed literary and cultural production in Britain in the last two centuries by examining closely selected literary, theoretical and cultural texts of Romanticism, Victorianism, Modernism and Postmodernism. The study of these texts will be organized around specific sets of concerns (for example, revolution, nation, gender, race, empire, etc.). Through contextual and interactive readings students will be able to follow through transformations in literary representation as these take place in the context of changing historical, cultural, social and political circumstances. Students need to do the required amount of reading within the limits set by the course outline and always before its discussion in class. This will facilitate their contribution to class discussions which will be an essential requirement of this module.

This course aims to instruct students in the basics of literary research and scholarly writing. Students are familiarized with the basic principles of writing about literary and/or cultural texts, researching a topic, and writing a research paper through a workshop-style lesson held once a week, with mandatory class attendance. They are also required to attend a compulsory library seminar on using electronic courses. Particular emphasis will be given to class discussion and in-class exercises, as well as regular one-on-one discussions of each student’s work during office hours throughout the term. Students will be expected to submit two formal written assignments, one short and one long paper (with greater weight given to the long paper) and to present outlines and drafts of their research papers during meetings with the instructor. The research papers are on literary or cultural topics, the first on a set text and the second on a topic of the student’s choice (subject to the instructor’s approval). Students are assessed on the basis of their research papers, as well as on their participation in class discussions and tasks. Scheduling and meeting deadlines is a key parameter of the course. The course also guides students to proper academic research conduct by placing emphasis on the importance of avoiding plagiarism. There is no final exam for this course. 

Πρόκειται για μάθημα εισαγωγής στο χώρο της Ψυχογλωσσολογίας. Αν και ο χώρος αυτός είναι πολύ ευρύς, το μάθημα επικεντρώνεται στους βασικούς άξονες εξέτασης της ψυχογλωσσολογίας και πώς αυτοί σχετίζονται με τη γλωσσολογική θεωρία. Οι άξονες αυτοί περιλαμβάνουν: τη μελέτη της γλωσσικής ικανότητας, δηλ. της γνωσιακής κατάστασης που αποδίδεται σε κάθε φυσικό ομιλητή μιας γλώσσας, τη μελέτη της ανάπτυξης αυτής της γλωσσικής ικανότητας σε παιδιά μονόγλωσσα και δίγλωσσα αλλά και σε ενήλικες, τη μελέτη της χρήσης της γλώσσας όσον αφορά στην κατανόηση και στην παραγωγή, και τη μελέτη κάποιων γλωσσικών διαταραχών. Η εξοικείωση των φοιτητών με τα πεδία έρευνας της ψυχογλωσσολογίας αποτελεί τον κύριο μαθησιακό στόχο του μαθήματος αυτού.

The aim of the course is to provide a comprehensive account of major qualitative and quantitative changes during the construction of children's phonological system. The course will initially address influential theoretical frameworks which have informed the study of phonological development including the behaviourist, structuralist, generative, cognitive and biological models. It will proceed to a description of the perceptual capacities of the infant and early vocal production. Important methodological issues concerning the experimental procedures adopted in perception and production research for phonological development will be presented. Stages in the development of intentional communication will be examined together with issues concerning the interaction between perception of running speech and production. The course will proceed to a review of studies on later development presenting issues regarding the emergence of the segment, vocabulary growth and prosodic development. Finally, the course will present selected characteristics of phonological disorders and some of the most influential frameworks and experimental studies regarding the acquisition of second language phonology. 

ABOUT LANGUAGE MASTERY II The aim of this course is to build on the skills and strategies acquired in Language Mastery I. Using their skills of critical thinking and analysis, participants will be required to investigate the techniques used in advertising and other forms of discourse to persuade an audience. Structure, lexis and stylistic features will be looked at, as appropriate, through the examination of texts and by means of analysis and production of spoken and written discourse. Summary writing and argumentative essay-writing will both be practised in class and at home. The main goal of the course is to help students become fully-independent learners of the English language. Learning outcomes: By the end of the course students should be able to: • use the skills and strategies required for effective study and learning (with more demanding texts) • understand text organisation and subtext • work autonomously on areas of weaknesses • use their analytic and synthetic skills and to formulate arguments, by means of analysis and production of spoken and written discourse • write an argumentative essay on quite complex and controversial issues by providing supportive evidence • summarise newspaper articles • analyse advertisements

The course explores the development of contemporary cinema by visiting specific landmark periods in which technologies, historical circumstances and theories contributed to an understanding of moviemaking as we know it today. It aims at familiarizing students with important milestones in the history and theory of cinematography; these milestones are selected based on their overall impact to the lineage of cinema. After exploring the early origins of the cinematic medium, the course passes through pillar theories of the 20th century, reaching all the way to contemporary digital cinematography. Although some of the theories partially overlap with one another historically, the course material is arranged in a chronological order so that those theories are contextualised within the era in which they were formed. This way, being more than a linear account of the cinematic medium, the course provides students with a comprehensive mural of the most important chapters in the history of cinematography, as well as the opportunity to visit them critically. During the course a number of thematically appropriate visual clips and other examples will be employed for a better consolidation of the material presented in the lectures.

This workshop adopts a profession-oriented approach to translator training whereby students will be working with authentic projects in order to pave their way toward professionalization. The first part of the course will include an introduction on the basic principles behind collaboration and (translation) project management and will focus on the corresponding skill set required. The second part of the course will focus on two multimodal collaborative projects and efforts will be made to ensure the simulation of a real-life workplace. The course includes visit(s) by industry experts and “clients”. Students will work in small groups with original material. By the end of this module, students will be expected to: -have improved their translation skills; -demonstrate an excellent awareness of the impact of cultural/linguistic differences on the process of translation; -work collaboratively at an advanced level, while exposed to different roles; -consolidate and extend their negotiation skills. Prerequisites: TIS2-214 or TIS1-118. Attendance is mandatory. Assessment: project-based assignments.
