This reading group for educators explores literary texts from a global perspective. Content specialists offer stimulating presentations of the work and its context, and together we brainstorm innovative pedagogical practices for incorporating the text and its themes into the curriculum. After a successful partnership with City of Asylum and their authors-in-residence in the fall, our series continues this spring with the theme of literature and authoritarianism. At this session, Prof. Jacques Bromberg (Classics) will lead a discussion of Sophocles' Antigone.
