Pre-Texts Workshop - CANCELED

This event has been canceled due to the covid-19 mitigation measures. 

On March 26, Director of Engaged Learning Dr. Vialla Hartfield-Méndez will facilitate a workshop using the “Pre-Texts” pedagogical approach.

Thursday, March 26
4:30pm to 7:30pm
Jones Room (Woodruff Library)
A light dinner will be provided. Participants must be able to attend the entire session.

The simple protocol of Pre-Texts invites participants to engage with a complex text (could be literary, scientific, historical, political, philosophical, theoretical, etc.) through the lens of multiple art forms, thus driving close reading, innovation, critical thinking and full participation. As a Pre-Texts advisor, facilitator and “capacity builder,” Hartfield-Méndez collaborates with founder Doris Sommer and has used this highly flexible approach in her own classes and in various other settings.

This workshop will provide an introduction to the approach, a brief discussion of how it has been used in multiple settings, and a discussion of how participants might use it in their own teaching. Hartfield-Méndez will also be available for additional consultation and practice sessions after the workshop.
