Marianne Janack

A new book about the feminist philosophical and religious traditions that developed at Colgate University in the twentieth century includes John Stewart Kennedy Chair of Philosophy Marianne Janack's personal essay about the feminist classroom. The book is edited by  Christopher Vecsey, the Harry Emerson Fosdick Professor of Humanities at Colgate.

Janack reflects on the anti-hierarchical and communicative virtues of feminist pedagogy, including the practice of re-arranging classrooms, and how, as a college student with fairly traditional expectations about classroom interactions and faculty roles, she found herself challenged by the non-traditional organization of classroom spaces that her feminist professors thought essential to the practice of feminist pedagogy.
