Comparative Literature Graduate Pedagogy Seminar

COM 500

Info tab content
A seminar on the concepts, principles and uncertainties informing the theory and practice of teaching. We read a series of attempts from diverse periods and cultures to define the conditions and limits of learning, even as we seek to measure their potential today. Questions to be discussed involve the relations between the acquisition and the remembering of knowledge, the place of the teacher in the classroom, schools and society, and the roles of memory and writing in the development and transmission of skill and knowledge.
