Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

Training of language skills, reinforcement of detailed historical
knowledge.

Inhoud vak

The topics of this course change yearly so that Research Master students
can participate in both years. Master Seminar 1B is a variant to Master
Seminar 1A (L_SAMAOHS001). The two courses will be offered in
alternating years. In 2018-19 you will get an introduction to Sumerian,
the language that lies at the basis of the later Akkadian writing system
and that has influenced the Akkadian language because of the close
interaction between the two languages in the third millennium BC.

Onderwijsvorm

Reading and research seminar (2 hours per week). It is a combination of
introduction into the Sumerian grammar, text reading, independent
research by the students and discussion
seminar.

Toetsvorm

Written test in week 7.

Vereiste voorkennis

Knowledge of Akkadian and cuneiform is recommended but not compulsory if
students are willing to prepare themselves in the summer break. Students
without this knowledge must therefore contact the instructor to receive
some self-study material in order to close the knowledge gap between
those Master students who had Akkadian before.
