Peter J. Rabinowitz Gives Paper at MLA Convention

Posted January 7, 2009
Tags Comparative Literature Peter Rabinowitz
Professor of Comparative Literature Peter J. Rabinowitz delivered a paper, "Inside the Text, Outside the Classroom: The Ethics of Narrative Ethics," during a special session at the MLA Convention in San Francisco on Dec. 28. 

Starting with the assumption that ethics can be considered a matter of behavior rather than belief, Rabinowitz raised a number of pedagogical, theoretical, and institutional questions about what it means to teach "narrative ethics"—in particular, how analytic activities in the classroom relate to actions outside of class. The session, which also included papers by James Phelan (Ohio State) and Katherine Nash (Virginia Commonwealth), was part of a series of events linked to the MLA Presidential Forum, "The Way We Teach Now."
