Gruber-Miller presented on teachingApril 6, 2012
Last April, John Gruber-Miller was invited to give a presentation and workshop at the University of Maryland as part of a Colloquium on Integrating Gendered Perspectives and the Study of Ancient Roman Women into the Latin Classroom and Curriculum.
His presentation, “Reflective Pedagogy/Feminist Pedagogy in Beginning Latin,” defined six categories for assessing the representation of women in elementary textbooks, offered case studies for helping students reflect on the intersection of language and gender, such as women’s story-telling, and the possibility of women claiming authority in the Roman Forum. Over the summer, he continued his research on these topics with senior Calla Holmes-Robbins.
