This advanced pedagogy seminar will investigate the roles that gender,
sexuality, and the body play in theories of learning and in academic
practice.  Readings will include: Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in
Tehran; Bell Hooks, Teaching to Transgress; Loic Wacquant, Body and
Soul; Jane Gallop, Feminist Accused of Sexual Harassment; Deborah
Britzman, Lost Subjects, Contested Objects; and Judith Levine, Harmful
to Minors.  In addition to the media controversy occasioned by
Levine’s book, we will also be looking at some films—horrific and
otherwise—that deal with pedagogy.

Written work for the class will include a course syllabus, a teaching
portfolio, some short writing assignments, and a 10-12 page research
