Creative Crossroads for Teaching Literature
Convenors: Titus Pop, Dan Popescu, Partium Christian University
Aim: The aim of this workshop is to offer modern/alternative ways of teaching literary texts both from the Anglo-American canon and from world literatures in English in a creative, innovative manner. The focus is on multidisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity (i.e. fiction and film, travel writing and mythology, poetry and music, etc.) as crossroads for a better reception of literary texts in class and outside it.
Professors from PCU will run the activities while 3 or 4 students will have short presentations on a pre-established topic. The activities will combine warm-up exercises with quizzes, pre-reading activities, while reading activities, follow-up multimedia research and writing tasks.
