“Imagine that I am a Teacher”: Pedagogy as Possibility in Roland Barthes
Start Date: 2/26/2014Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 2/26/2014End Time: 2:30 PM

Event Description:

Tyler T. Schmidt (Assistant Professor, Department of English) will discuss...

What useable models of teaching does Roland Barthes offer today’s professor? Drawing on Barthes’ most recent posthumous publications, How to Live Together and The Preparation of the Novel, which offer illuminating, detailed documentation of Barthes’ teaching practices, this talk examines these texts as both curriculum maps and pedagogical statements, exploring not only how knowledge is organized in these lectures and seminars, but how the performance of “teacher” is structured in these texts.  This presentation will venture possible answers to the following queries about pedagogy: As critical educators, what can we learn from Barthes’ academic practice of notation (of life, of texts)?  How does he reconceive the format of the lecture in ways we might emulate? Which of his teaching protocols are most adaptable and attractive to our own seminars that are constituted in very different institutions with very different students?

This talk is part of the Arts & Humanities Works in Progress Series for Spring 2014, and will
 take place on Wednesday, February 26, in Shuster Hall-room 336 from 12:30-2 PM.
