Lively Possibilities for Fall Teaching

With fall semester approaching, remember the new teaching resource, The Deviant Philosopher. If you’re looking for ways to liven up your courses with work from diverse philosophical sources, check out some of the possibilities included there. Even better, as you’re preparing your courses, if you have “deviant” approaches already in play, consider submitting them to The Deviant Philosopher – share your strategies with others!

Everything you need to know and a contact tab for any questions can be found here.  Submitting work is easy and, since you’re already preparing, you should share your wealth!

Some highlights from the existing database:

A spectrum of possibilities for teaching women philosophers in Greek philosophy from Jerry Green.

Ways to enhance your class on Modern philosophy with Modern women from Liz Goodnick.

A full unit from Robin Zheng on teaching sexual preferences.

A creative approach to setting students onto diverse research paths from Kate Norlock.

Teaching Marilyn Frye’s “Oppression” as a critique of hedonism from Emily McRae.

There’s much more there and we hope you’ll submit more!
