Literature and Society: New Schools

D. Graham Burnett and Jeff Dolven

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

New Schools surveys experiments in para- and counter-institutional higher education over the last century, from Black Mountain to Outer Coast to Deep Springs. Why do experimental schools arise, flourish, fossilize, fail? What are the epistemic, social, and political implications of departures from pedagogical norms? We approach these new schools as historians, critics, and teachers (and students); we study their records, try their methods, and we may well build our own. The seminar responds to the crisis of opportunity in higher education and to the perpetual call for new ways to teach and learn.
