Title: WSC Roundtable: Teaching Paola Masino
This round table seeks to address methodological questions on the teaching of Paola Masino’s texts. Such questions might include, but are not limited to, the following: • Which of Masino’s texts do you happen to use most in your courses? • In which type of courses would it be appropriate to include the studying of Masino’s works (Women’s Studies, Italian Literature Courses, History of women, others)? • How do you organize and approach the teaching of these texts? • Are there any particular challenges in teaching Paola Masino’s texts? • Do you select texts in translation or in Italian? • What are students’ reactions when they read Paola Masino? The round table will have an open format, and will include shorter presentations (5-6 minutes) that focus on the panelist’s area of interest in relation to the topic, followed by a 45-minute discussion.
