Decisions and guidelines
The main target group of the course is students in the Master's Programme in the Humanities, specialization Aesthetics.
Upon completion of the course the student is expected to:
- have detailed knowledge of one or two central issues in contemporary aesthetics
- be able to critically discuss work in aesthetics relating to those issues
- be well acquainted with contemporary research in aesthetics beyond the interests and expertise of researchers at the department.
The course affords students the opportunity to focus on one or two issues in contemporary aesthetics, chosen by one or more visiting guest researchers in accordance with their research interests and specialities. The issue(s) will be approached through written assignments, seminars, and discussion with the researchers. Participation requires reading texts, as well as active participation in seminars.
Instruction takes the form of teacher-guided seminars and lectures.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the University's disability coordinator.
In case of a transition from the Faculty of Arts' Master's Programme in the Humanities to master's programmes under the Department of Philosophy, this syllabus may be reused in the department's master's programmes. The text under the heading Decisions and Guidelines should then be interpreted as applying to the department's master's programmes.
