McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning

In Geographies of Learning, a collection of essays on pedagogy, performance, and the theory/practice divide that plagues many disciplines, Jill Dolan urges her readers to “[t]each for questions, not for answers”; to “[t]each to unsettle”; and to “[t]each to learn something” (144). In dialogue with Professor of Dance Judith Hamera, Dolan will reflect on the lessons she’s learned over the course of her celebrated career as a leading public intellectual devoted to the American theater, an award-winning scholar of performance and theater studies, and a deeply admired university teacher and administrator, including her nine years as Dean of the College.

Wine and cheese reception to follow.
