Creating Community in the Remote Literature Classroom

Facilitator: Davy Knittle, CETLI Graduate Fellow, English and Adam Sax, CETLI Graduate Fellow, Comparative Literature
Convener: Professors Jo Park, English and D. Brian Kim, Russian and East European Studies

In this workshop, we’ll focus on strategies shared by CETLI and others for promoting classroom community, as well as strategies specific to teaching literature remotely. How might we use the solitary togetherness of reading and analyzing common texts to promote classroom community? How might asynchronous and synchronous sessions draw on commonalities and differences between the personal, community, national, and global experiences that each student is having and how might an embrace of linguistic pluralism and translation aid in such a strategy? How can variation in assignment design help promote community within the classroom and beyond it? How might literary texts that critique and negotiate systems of power provide particular resources for building a sense of community in our remote classes in the fall and beyond? This workshop will provide suggestions as well as an opportunity for discussion and resource-sharing. While this workshop focuses on the literature classroom, participants from all fields are welcome to attend!
