Open Questions

Page history last edited by Alan Liu 10 years, 7 months ago

As English 236 evolved, we began to harvest "open questions" that emerged in each class--a practice that led us to think that the ultimate "product" of a graduate-level class really should be the questions it generates.  The following are the open questions that the instructor and students generated in classes on specific subjects.  In each instance, the instructor (Alan Liu) asked a graduate student to act as the collector and transcriber of questions that arose in class.  Then the instructor edited, filled in the context for, and sometimes elaborated on these questions.  Most of us in the class are humanities or education scholars from several disciplines who are beginners at the various subjects in the course.  The questions registered here remained after our readings and practicums--and, in fact, our questions were often sparked (or stoked higher) by those exercises.  We're aware that there is additional research and discussion on some of these issues, likely at a level beyond that of beginners or occurring in other fields.  Suggestions for reading welcome!
