Two different options are available for this final, individual project:

1. Writing a literature review on the field / genre / analytical tool of ekphrasis.
2. Writing a conference paper on the ekphrastic connection between, for example, a novel and a painting, or using ekphrasis as an analytical tool to promote a critical analysis of a specific text.

Either option should be 8-10 pages long and double-spaced, use 12 Times New Roman and conform to the MLA style of citation.

This project is due on the official date set for the final exam.
Workshop A12 A13 B4 B6 B9 B11 B12 Active participation in and contribution to every class discussion, debate or activity will be taken into account. Hence, preparation of the material assigned prior to class is essential.

Students can also expect to be asked to guide class discussion on previously selected literary texts and visual art, as well as to present to the class on critical articles. The dates of both these activities will be decided with the students at the beginning of this subject.
Assessment comments
  • A "Non presentado" (Absent) grade will be obtained for not doing the supervised project and/or not completing 50% (or more) of the coursework. 
  • The second (July) opportunity of assessment will consist of two parts: 
1) the supervised project (with identical format and criteria as in the first opportunity), which will be worth 50% of the grade; 
2) the assignments that will compensate for missed or failed classwork, and which will be worth 50% of the grade. Depending on which assignments need to be made up, specific instructions on topics and assignments will be given. Students who must make up for all of this section (i.e., 50% of their grade) will turn in a review and a literary analysis. Both will be due by 14.00 h. on the official final exam date.
  • Given that this is a blended learning course, attendance is mandatory, except when the student has been granted exemption by the master's Academic University Committee. Nonetheless, attendance regulations from the three participating universities must be observed, as well as the assesment regulations stated in the courses' Teaching Guides, and notwithstanding the consequences that absence from specific sessions might have for final assesment. Students who have been granted exemption, as specified in the university regulations, will be assessed according to the criteria applied in the July opportunity.
  • Students sitting the December exam (final exam brought forward) will be assessed according to the criteria specified for the July opportunity.
  • Plagiarism will mean a grade of "zero" in the plagiarized assignment. Instructors may use the plagiarism-detection service "Turnitin" to check students' work.
  • Every assignment must be turned in in time and in the specified format in order to avoid being penalized 25% of the grade in the assignment.
