Dissonant Methods

Undoing Discipline in the Humanities Classroom

Dissonant Methods is an innovative collection that probes how, by teaching inventively, postsecondary instructors can resist the constrictions of neoliberalism. Taking up the call in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning to understand teaching as scholarship, these essays offer concrete and practical meditations on resistant and sustainable teaching. The contributors seek to undermine forms of oppression frequently practised in higher education, and instead advance a vision of the university that upholds ideals such as critical thinking, creativity, and inclusivity. Essential reading for faculty and graduate students in the humanities, Dissonant Methods offers urgent, galvanizing ideas for anyone currently teaching in a college or university.Contributors: Kathy Cawsey, Kit Dobson, Ada S. Jaarsma, Rachel Jones, Kyle Kinaschuk, Namrata Mitra, Guy Obrecht, Katja Pettinen, Kaitlin Rothberger, Ely Shipley, Martin Shuster
