It's Time To End Courseocentrism

Subject: major integration
Date: 2009-01-13
Five-page article by Gerald Graff in Inside Higher Ed, arguing for more integrative curriculum and teaching.  From the article:  "Such [stand-alone] courses are at odds with the new forms of connectivity enabled by our new electronic technology. They are also at odds with the most sophisticated and original work in the humanities during the last generation, which has taught us that what seem to be free-standing identities—whether they be texts or selves — are produced by collective structures of discourse and representation. It seems we have deconstructed the autonomous, self-authorizing subject and the autonomous, self-authorizing literary work. It’s time we got around to deconstructing the autonomous, self-authorizing course."
