The Anthological Impulse: Pedagogy and Social Justice

Friday, January 19, 2018 - 4:15pm
American Studies Association (ASA, November 8-11, 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 27, 2018

Anthologies are a profoundly pedagogical genre. However, while anthologies are often constructed specifically for classrooms, as scholars such as Kenneth Warren (1993) and Cynthia G. Franklin (1997) have argued, their making is typically removed from the site and sight of the classroom. While this suggests a unilateral and hierarchical pedagogy of knowledge transmission from expert to student, this panel explores what other, more empowering praxes emerge around what we are calling “the anthological impulse”: a desire to write and think with others and collect and share that work.
