Thanks for the great week of Student Run Discussions on the first two Parts of Reading Lolita in Tehran. I really enjoyed listening and taking notes. I keep returning to this idea of the imagination being so crucial to empathy--many of you have addressed this in various ways throughout the discussion.
Anyway, here's the video we watched in class (as prelude to the SRDs) in case you wanted to return to it for any reason; I've watched it three times and have gotten something from it each time.
The Schedule for the week of 10.18.10:
Monday 10.18.10, Late-entry, the schedule is 7,1,2,3. No class.
Tuesday 10.19.10, Day 1 (Long Block). Before lunch you can have time in your independent reading groups, just to make sure your posting schedule is organized and shared with me. After class, we will begin the first of three classes on Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, so please make sure you have read it (at least once) before class and can access moments in the text at will. What we are doing over the next three days is my surprise. . .
Wednesday 10.20.10, Day 7. Class on Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.
Thursday 10.21.10, Day 6. Class on Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.
Friday 10.22.10, Day 5 , No Class, but your first (of three) book club posts will be due by midnight. Details coming soon.
