Literally Speaking: What Should We Teach?
Join us at our three panels as we mull over Why Study Literature? (March 15), What Are The Boundaries? (April 14), and What Should We Teach (May 12). The sessions will be moderated by Philip Holden.
Literally Speaking is organised by The Select Centre, in collaboration with Philip Holden.
Admission is free! Donations at the door are welcome. Select is a nonprofit. Please support us and our programmes!
How should the teaching of literature reflect a rapidly changing society? Should we return to apparently “difficult” authors who we have abandoned, and discover new facets for their work? Or should we aim to disrupt institutionalised norms, and promote empathy or respect for others? Our panelists will consider these and other questions.
