The unit involves a 3 hour workshop on Wednesdays, 3-6pm, held in room 234, 4 Western Rd. There is an iLearn site with weekly readings, assignments and other details.
Classes are run similar to a reading group. Most weeks lecturers will open the discussion, providing context to the readings and the themes of the week and then will open up a facilitated discussion. Some weeks there will be guest lecturers. It is expected that everyone will have read and digested the weekly readings. Given active participation in discussion is central to the pedagogy of the uni, students are expected to attend workshops.
The discussions will be interdisciplinary and we welcome students bringing insights from their home disciplines to the material we are discussing.
