Reading While Walking
A Reflection on Interdisciplinary Co-Teaching
This reflection focuses on how the opportunity to co-teach across disciplines illuminates the interconnections between literary criticism and ethnographic methodology. We discuss the value of walking as a way of knowing and of creative genres as modes of representation. Through the class’s final project, a multimedia map of Kenosha, we see the benefits of a combined literary and ethnographic approach in our students’ rigorously observed and sensitively rendered presentations.
