Brown Bag Lunch Roundtable Discussion on John Sloop's Disciplining Gender
John Sloop will be our Auer Lecturer this year (3/26/09) and in preparation for his visit we will read the introduction and first two chapters in his Winans-Wichelns Award winning book Undoing Gender. The reading (a .pdf is available under "resources" on the Gunderson Forum On-Course Site) was suggested by Sloop as speaking to our interest in "change and transformation." As Sloop put it in a note to me, if you are going to think about change and transformation you need to attend to discursive contexts that resist and undermine the possibilities for either. This reading speaks to such concerns. Come ready with questions, problems, arguments, and the lie.
