Teaching literature censored by governments or self-censored means engaging with social, religious, political, and sexual taboos dialectically related to the courage of writers. This panel will explore pedagogical methods appropriate for this topic, with the objective of exploring the secrets of other cultures and discovering our own biases. From Ulysses and Lolita to Satanic Verses and Children of Gebelaawi (or the Alley), what is the best way to explore these forbidden fruits? Please send proposals to Dr. Julia Keefer, jk12@nyu.edu.
