We will use this news item to keep you updated on the impact of SARS-CoV-2/COVID on instruction and other curricular aspects in the coming semester. As you know, social distancing procedures are a crucial element in slowing the spread of this virus and in helping the health care system absorb a growing number of cases. Our policies reflect this goal.

UPDATE: Picador Chair in the Summer Term 2020

We are sorry to announce that due to the ongoing SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the Picador Chair will have to remain empty for the summer term of 2020. After a lot of careful thought, we decided that this is the most sensible choice in the light of the still unfolding events. While this means that no creative writing workshop will be offered this semester, we will be able to offer LC-III and the Lehramt module “US Popular Culture and American Literature” (-1701), albeit in a slightly different form than usual.

Grading LC I Exam (Lecture)

Students who wish to receive feedback on their grades for the in-class exam of last semester’s “Literature and Culture I” should set up an appointment with Prof. Kanzler during her office hours. Please take note of the current procedures for remote office hours.

As of now, no repeat exam for LCI can be scheduled. We will revisit the situation later in the semester and announce any updates as we have them.
