Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Englisch - Padagogik, Didaktik, Sprachwissenschaft, Note: 1,0, Universitat Stuttgart (Institut fur Literaturwissenschaft, Abteilung Amerikanistik), Veranstaltung: Fachdidaktik: Teaching literature in the language classroom, 19 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Verlauf des Seminars wurden etliche Techniken vorgestellt, fremdsprachlichen Literaturunterricht zu gestalten. Betrachtet man die seit dem Schuljahr 2004/2005 verbindlichen Bildungsstandards, welche unter dem Anspruch stehen, die Lernkultur an Gymnasien zu verbessern, so wird deutlich, dass literarische Texte aus dem Bildungsplan der allgemein bildenden Gymnasien nicht wegzudenken sind. Seit Einfuhrung der Bildungsstandards wird Bildung nicht mehr als abrufbares Wissen verstanden, sondern ganzheitlich betrachtet; die Schule soll Kinder zur Selbststandigkeit erziehen und bei der Entwicklung ihrer Personlichkeit weiterhelfen. Fur den Unterricht bedeutet dies naturlich auch, dass die Methoden, die bislang Anwendung fanden, uberdacht werden mussen, denn es stellt sich die Frage, ob die herkommlichen analytischen Verfahren Anspruchen wie Starkung der Personlichkeit, musisch-asthetische Erziehung und die Einubung von Urteilsfahigkeit und Verantwortung" (Ministerium fur Kultus, Jugend und Sport Baden-Wurttemberg 2003:4) facherubergreifend genugen konnen. Dem Fach Englisch fallt dabei sicher eine Schlusselfunktion zu, da es erstens wie das Fach Deutsch gerade auch im Bereich der Kommunikation [..] und des Schreibens auf vielfaltig Weise Anstoss zum Erlernen von Kreativitat [gibt]" (Muhle-Bohlen 2000:39) und zweitens durch das Vermitteln einer fremden Sprache und Kultur eine interkulturelle Kompetenz aufbaut, die Identitatsbildung und Personlichkeitsfindung unterstutzt sowie durch den Perspektivenwechsel Toleranz fordert. Diesen Zielen dient auch die Begegnung mit literarischen Ausdrucksformen und Texten in der fremden Sprache. Im Folgend"

Jonathan Safran Foer emerged as one of the most original writers of his generation with his best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated. Now, with humor, tenderness, and awe, he confronts the traumas of our recent history. What he discovers is solace in that most human quality, imagination. Meet Oskar Schell, an inventor, Francophile, tambourine player, Shakespearean actor, jeweler, pacifist, correspondent with Stephen Hawking and Ringo Starr. He is nine years old. And he is on an urgent, secret search through the five boroughs of New York. His mission is to find the lock that fits a mysterious key belonging to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11. An inspired innocent, Oskar is alternately endearing, exasperating, and hilarious as he careens from Central Park to Coney Island to Harlem on his search. Along the way he is always dreaming up inventions to keep those he loves safe from harm. What about a birdseed shirt to let you fly away? What if you could actually hear everyone's heartbeat? His goal is hopeful, but the past speaks a loud warning in stories of those who've lost loved ones before. As Oskar roams New York, he encounters a motley assortment of humanity who are all survivors in their own way. He befriends a 103-year-old war reporter, a tour guide who never leaves the Empire State Building, and lovers enraptured or scorned. Ultimately, Oskar ends his journey where it began, at his father's grave. But now he is accompanied by the silent stranger who has been renting the spare room of his grandmother's apartment. They are there to dig up his father's empty coffin.

The enormous adverse psychological side effects resulting from the 9/11 at-tacks are represented by 13% of lower Manhattan residents even seven years afterwards. Foer has a walk-over attracting a large readership because he utilizes this topic. His rea-dership could have been even bigger if they would have known about the practical im-plementation of coping strategies creatively hidden in the subtext. It is the main goal of this text to reveal major PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) symptoms in the main characters in a partly scientific/literary analysis and thus give an idea how the 40% of New York City's affected school children might have felt in the aftermath of September 11. Relevant coping strategies that ensure a general health-related quality of life can be experienced in a beautiful story about a boy that exceeds his emotional boundaries with the help of his closer and farther related social environment.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject English - Literature, Works, University of Presov (British and American Studies), language: English, abstract: This bachelor thesis analyses Oskar Schell, the fictional character from Jonathan Safran Foer's novel "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close". The chosen technique is called „a case study“ since it examines the case of Oskar Schell with an emphasis on his mental state. The thesis is divided into two main parts; theoretical and practical. The theory briefly deals with the author and his literary purpose, explains the plot, the basic theories of three mental disorders – posttraumatic stress disorder, autism and clinical depression. The practical part demonstrates symptoms of these illnesses in Oskar's passages and in the end provides a possible diagnosis.

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Potsdam (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Extremely Irritated and Incredibly Diverse- US-Amerikanische Mainstreamliteratur nach 2000, language: English, abstract: I didn’t understand why I needed help, because it seemed to me that you should wear heavy boots when your dad dies, and if you aren’t wearing heavy boots, then you need help. (Foer 200, emphasis original) On an early Tuesday morning in September 2001 two as human bombs converted airplanes hit the World Trade Center, killed about 2870 people and left nearly 10.000 children with only one or even no parent at all (Anzieu-Premmereur 281). This drastic disaster ended America as it was known before 9/11 and overwhelmed its inhabitants with tragedy, terror and fear, leaving behind an overpowering numbness that will express itself through flags flying at half-mast, millions of shattered individuals, repetitive pictures of horror in the media and attempts to handle the unbearable through literature. In Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (for shortening reasons from now on referred to as EL&IC) the nine-year-old protagonist Oskar Schell suffers from the loss of his dear father Thomas Schell Jr. who died on 11 September in the restaurant Windows of the World located in the north tower of the World Trade Center. This paper will show how Foer’s three main characters in EL&IC are portrayed as survivors of trauma, what experiences and guilt they suffer from and how they deal with these on the level of language, action and image. Referring to trauma theory this text will prove that each of the three characters has a different way of coping with the traumatic experiences they faced (in the case of the grandparents even two experiences are taken into consideration) and to what extend a resolution of trauma is achieved by them. The unconventional style of narration and design of EL&IC, its inclusion of blankness and blackness and its constant use of pictures through Thomas Sr.’s daybooks as well as Oskar’s Stuff that Happened to Me, create a collage-like character of the novel that resembles the structure of trauma which will also be discussed in this paper.

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Koblenz-Landau (Anglistik), course: 20th Century Novels, language: English, abstract: Trauma seems to me being an essential topic to discuss in school as everybody sooner or later has to deal with loss or already dealt with it in the past. As every student can identify with this potential challenge, it is important for them to get to know different ways of dealing with trauma. Foer’s story even reveals that coping with trauma is able to bring people from different races and ages together. Even if people’s trauma is caused by different events there will be a connection between these people. Moreover, it would be possible to teach this topic interdisciplinary and interdisciplinary in ethics or religious education classes. As everyone could be affected by trauma I determined this topic for my planned lesson. The reason for choosing the subtopics namely ‘inventing’ and ‘heavy boots’ referring to Oskar; Grandfather Schell’s ‘aphasia’ and ‘the doorknobs’ and finally, ‘supressing’ and ‘the feeling of being needed’ with regard to Grandmother Schell reveal concreteness for the main topic. I decided to teach the topic by group work to facilitate the exchange of experiences without the danger to be exposed in front of the class. I thought this is the best way, as the students can talk about how they perceived the character and his or her ability to deal with the trauma they have gone through. The team work is followed by a presentation and discussion of this work to ensure all students have reached the same level of knowledge. Moreover, it is important have the ability to emphasise with this character and change their perspectives or contribute their own experiences with loss to explain the others why somebody could show such behaviour. I will analyse the topic by a characterisation following by a psychoanalytic approach. For one it is important to get to know why people are behaving differently after experiencing loss and second, it is illuminating for the students to become aware that trauma can be responsible for the person concerned being left with an altered personality. The lesson I have planned relates to both, characterisation and psychoanalytic approaches. After the lesson the students should have general knowledge about trauma and its effects. Furthermore, it should be clear that trauma can only be overcome by going through two phases, which build up upon each other.

Wie können wir all die Rollen, die wir zu spielen haben, glaubhaft unter einen Hut bekommen? Wie gleichzeitig Sohn, Vater und Ehemann sein? Oder Mutter, Ehefrau und Geliebte? Erwachsener und Kind? Oder gar Amerikaner und Jude? Wie können wir wir selbst sein, wenn unser Leben doch so eng mit allen anderen verbunden ist? Diese Fragen stehen im Zentrum von Jonathan Safran Foers erstem Roman seit elf Jahren. »Hier bin ich« erzählt von vier turbulenten Wochen im Leben einer Familie in tiefer Krise. Julia und Jacob haben sich auseinandergelebt, doch wie könnten sie sich trennen, ohne dass ihre drei Söhne darunter leiden oder gar sie selbst? Immer wieder diskutieren sie alle Szenarien durch, kümmern sich aufopferungsvoll um den inkontinenten Hund und die bevorstehende Bar Mitzwa des ältesten Sohns. Gerade als die israelische Verwandtschaft zur Familienfeier in Washington, D.C. eintrifft, ereignet sich ein katastrophales Erdbeben im Nahen Osten, das die Invasion Israels zur Folge hat. Die Fragen »Was ist Heimat? Was bedeutet Zuhause?« stellen sich noch einmal ganz neu, auch für Jacob. Jonathan Safran Foer schreibt sich mit seinem dritten Roman endgültig in den Olymp der amerikanischen Literatur.

»Ein Debüt, wie es lange keines gegeben hat: In seinem Roman Alles ist erleuchtet vollbringt Jonathan Safran Foer das Wunder der erfundenen Erinnerung.« Hubert Spiegel, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Man lacht und weint und ist hingerissen vom Talent eines jungen Autors. Er erzählt die phantastische Geschichte eines jüdischen Schtetls, das Schicksal seiner Familie während des Holocaust und die Abenteuer eines jungen Amerikaners, der aufgebrochen ist, um die Vergangenheit zu suchen. Ein junger Amerikaner kommt in die Ukraine. Er heißt zufällig Jonathan Safran Foer. Im Gepäck hat er das vergilbte Foto einer Frau namens Augustine. Sie soll gegen Ende des 2. Weltkrieges seinen Großvater vor den Nazis gerettet haben. Jonathan will Augustine finden und Trachimbrod, den Ort, aus dem seine Familie stammt. Sein Reiseführer ist ein alter Ukrainer mit einem noch älteren klapprigen Auto, sein Dolmetscher dessen Enkel Alex, ein unglaubliches Großmaul und ein Genie im Verballhornen von Sprache. Mit von der Partie ist noch Sammy Davis jr. jr., eine neurotische Promenadenmischung mit einer Leidenschaft für Jonathan, der Angst vor Hunden hat. Die Reise führt durch eine verwüstete Gegend und in eine Zeit des Grauens. Alex berichtet in seiner unnachahmlichen Sprache von den Abenteuern und irrsinnigen Missverständnissen während dieser Fahrt, Jonathan erzählt die phantastische Geschichte Trachimbrods bis zum furchtbaren Ende, und der alte Ukrainer begegnet den Gespenstern seiner Vergangenheit. Alex und Jonathan aber sind zum Schluss der Reise Freunde geworden. Übersetzungsrechte in fast 20 Sprachen vergeben.
