Teaching method

Being a post-graduate seminar, the teacher’s presentations must be previously prepared by students’, who must read the supporting bibliography in order to have a rich critical discussion. The student’s presentations will enrich the seminar by introducing other cases and perspectives related to fictional modes. Since students have already defined the subjects of their future thesis, some classes will focus on these themes, inviting other professors when needed

Evaluation method

Participation in class and preparation and execution of a research paper, in three stages: project, with working plan and preliminary bibliography(20%), final written essay(50%), oral presentation in class, and its discussion(30%)
