Peace and Pedagogy Panel II: "Banned Books in the Classroom." This panel
will focus on censored literature, broadly defined, as a site of
transgression, power, and social challenge. Teaching works that have
been banned, as well as the issues surrounding them, can be fraught with
difficulty for both teachers and students, particularly in an era of
brittle attitudes about cultural and political difference. The aim of
the panel is to consider the pedagogical implications of teaching and
studying international works that have been censored and/or censured for
political and social reasons are invited. Papers dealing with the
following topics are invited: 1) specific cases of censorship and
political repression, 2) banned or repressed works that are particularly
"teachable," 3) theoretical considerations regarding censorship and
literature, 4) exemplary writing and reading assignments.
