Performing Pedagogy: (Re)-Productions of Early Modern Culture in the Classroom
A collection of articles.

The book will have three parts. We are taking submissions for parts I and II. Participants to sections I and II will contribute to an online discussion (a private weblog) that will provide the basis for section III.

I. Pedagogy in the early modern period

   How did the Early Modern classroom shape subjectivity? What ideological practices informed Early Modern pedagogy? How did those practices infiltrate the extra-curricular culture? What canons of texts (both ancient and modern) and methods constituted the study of literature (poesy) in early modern classrooms?

II. Pedagogy of the early modern period

This is to announce "The Alchemy Issue" of Pataphysica, journal
of a certain science. A symbolic science of imaginary
solutions, alchemy is a branch of pataphysics, the "science of
sciences" founded by Alfred Jarry (1873-1907). Jarry's own work
is steeped in alchemical allusions, from (among many other
instances) his 1894 exhortation to "study conjunctions!"
("Visions Present and Future"); to his 1898 "neo-scientific"
novel Exploits and Opinions of Dr. Faustroll, pataphysician,
where the evicting locksmith, Mr. Lourdeau, resides at "205 rue
Nicolas Flamel" (Flamel was a legendary 14th century alchemist);
to his 1899 "Automovable Feast" in Père Ubu's Illustrated

S T A T E S O F E M E R G E N C Y

The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the “state of emergency” in
which we live is not the exception but the rule. We must attain to a
conception of history that is in keeping with this insight. Then we shall
clearly realize that it is our task to bring about a real state of emergency.
