Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 2,7, University of Bonn, language: English, abstract: Passing by Nella Larsen, published in 1929, features the issue of racial passing in a society which segregates people of Negro descent from the dominant white American class. Wall claims that "Not only is Passing set in Harlem at the height of its vogue, it is itself a product of the vogue. Aptly then, it acknowledges the opportunities as well as the risks that the more fluid racial and cultural boundaries of the period created". Irene Redfield, one of the two female protagonists, is able to pass, but still chose a life within Harlem and a coloured husband. Her counterpart Clare Kendry, on the contrary, is completely passing by being married to a white man who does not know about her descent. Still, she is highly fascinated by the life Irene leads in Harlem and thus she attempts at leading a double-life. As Clare becomes increasingly involved in the black culture of that time, she also has to fear about her husband finding out the truth about her.In order to set the issue of racial passing in a historical and cultural framework, I attempt at focusing on the connection between the novel and a jurisdictional case from 1925, called the Rhinelander Case. This case is also being referred to in Passing: "What if Bellew should divorce Clare? Could he? There was the Rhinelander case". Furthermore, Madigan claims the following: "That Larsen has the case enter Irene's mind so quickly, however, testifies to the Rhinelanders' importance to discussions of miscegenation, the law, and racial passing during the period of the Harlem Renaissance". Leonard Kip Rhinelander, who was from the upper white class of New York, got married to Alice Jones, who was mixed-raced and from the working class. Rhinelander attempted at annulling the marriage as he claimed he had not known about his wife's race before the wedding. She countered by claiming that he has known about their race before their marriage as it was unmistakable. The jury the young couple had to face was all-male and white. Thereupon, this term paper will deal with the following research question: How can the relationship between the Rhinelander Case and Nella Larsen's Passing be defined and which are the means by which this relationship is being constituted?
Project Report from the year 2018 in the subject Didactics - English - Pedagogy, Literature Studies, grade: 1,3, University of Bonn (Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Keltologie), language: English, abstract: The present study was realised during the first phase of teachers' vocational training in Germany and seeks to observe the effects of morphological instruction in a class of the qualification level. A diagnostic test that was carried out based on some spelling mistakes in writing tasks during the first month of the training, suggested that learners lacked knowledge in some basic spelling changes in the area of derivational morphology. Also, when they were asked to draw lines between morphemes in some words, in order to control to what extent they can identify word components the degree of uncertainty was high. Given the fact that no explicit instruction on morphology ever took place in the class, it was decided to observe whether learners of higher classes can benefit from a morphological instruction and what conclusions can be drawn from the results.
This work examines the sociopolitical implications of the membership, musical and political performance, choral material, leadership, and member perceptions of the German Workers' Choral Association (Deutscher Arbeitersängerbund, or DAS) during the years of the Weimar Republic, 1918-1933. This organization of over 6,000 choruses and 500,000 members exemplified the broader movement for proletarian cultural advancement. Like other workers' organizations, including the sport and cycling groups, the DAS was closely linked with the German Social Democratic Party (SPD) and Free Trade Unions and explicitly aligned itself with the socialist working-class movement. Comparisons with its bourgeois rival, the German Choral Association, other workers' organizations, Communist and Nazi singers, and worker choruses in other nations, as well as case studies in Augsburg and Solingen, illuminate the development of the DAS. This work draws upon archival sources from Solingen, Bonn, Augsburg, Plauen, Feuchtwangen, and Dortmund to analyze the sociocultural and political milieu of the Weimar-era DAS and the organized working class as a whole.
Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,7, University of Bonn, 11 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Ferdinand de Saussure called the relationship between a word and other accompanying words a syntagmatic relation, and the relationship between a word and related but not-occurring words, an associative relationship. For the latter a new term was somewhat later proposed by Hjelmslev - a paradigmatic relation-ship, which is universally preferred in modern linguistics. Paradigmatic (vertical) relations are those that bind the elements of a group or a class of lexemes - 'sets of intersubstitutable elements' (Lyons 2002:96) - from paradigm of a single world to whole lexical fields. Lexical items so related stand in opposition or contrast to each other and help to define the meaning of each other. Syntagmatic (horizontal) relations between words are 'the relations that hold among elements that can occur in combination with one another, in well-formed syntagms'. (Lyons 2002:96) They are linear and simultaneous in the stream of speech or writing and define the rules of combining smaller units of any level of a language into bigger ones and compatibility of the former. They characterise the formation of syntagms as a language sequence. I have chosen to make syntagmatic relations between words the topic of this work because in my opinion this relationship is the most important part of linguistics as it is namely syntagmatics that describes and explains the functioning of words in speech and writing, i.e. in the reality of a language. It is certainly one of the most important aspects of each language as far as its learners are concerned as it is vital for those who learn a language to learn how the words collocate with each other alongside their meanings and paradigms.
