Feminist Pedagogy in the Two-Year College
How do two-year college instructors put feminist theory into pedagogical practice? This roundtable discusses forms of feminist pedagogy in the community college classroom. Participants are invited to share methods and ideas of pedagogy for teaching in women and gender studies and/or feminist approaches to learning and classroom strategies across the disciplines. Papers should aim to address gender and sexuality issues, along with race and class, within and outside the rapidly transforming academic space of the two-year college.
Literature and Medicine in the Eighteenth Century
Recent work on world literary systems has done much to illuminate the history, geography, and politics of our present-day literary moment. We now know much about the uneven circulation of narrative forms across the globe; about the ethical and epistemological challenges facing translation; and about the impact that literary markets have had on literary and cultural production.
It has been more than fifty years since Susan Sontag insisted: "What is important now is to recover our senses. We must learn to see more, to hear more, to feel more." To what extent has this lesson been learned? And how committed are we to teaching it? And through what methods? This seminar seeks to examine the possibilities and limitations of theoretical approaches that help us understand and assess Gloria Anzaldúa's claim that the "image is a bridge between evoked emotion and conscious knowledge; words are the cables that hold up the bridge. Images are more direct, more immediate than words, and closer to the unconscious. Picture language precedes thinking in words; the metaphorical mind precedes analytical consciousness."
