BEF 698 is a one credit reading course offered every semester. The class meets every other week for an hour or so and students dig into one generative text over the semester and discuss it. There is no written work. There is a final project: a presentation using an article that draws on the work or theory read over the semester.
The instructors and course readings are planned as follows:
- Fall 2015 -- Dr. Nirmala Erevelles will read Sara Ahmed’s Queer Phenomenology
- Spring 2016 -- Dr. Doug McKnight will read Jacques Derrida's On Grammatology
- Summer 2016 -- Dr. Stephen Tomlinson will read John Dewey's Unmodern Philosophy
- Fall 2016 -- Dr. Becky Atkinson will read Jane Addams' Democracy and Social Ethics and Ten Years at Hull House
