Week 6: Feb 9, 12-12:50 in SH110

“Faculty Fishbowl: How we Talk about Difficult Texts”
Handling uncompromising, unsettling, and realistic content in a classroom filled with diverse student populations is difficult because it can alienate, exclude or perhaps even confuse students. In this panel discussion we will consider how potentially offensive and painful texts can be presented in an academic context. In other words, how do we - as members of academic communities - talk about difficult text?

A panel discussion led by English faculty Linda Wilson-Hill and Richard Potsubay
