An Angle

I may be teaching a course on method in interpretation this coming year (I still don’t quite know), and I’ve been cogitating about how to teach such a course in a way that both coordinates with what students may leearn and practice in other people’s courses, and also coheres with my theoretical interests. I think I may be able to do it by taking a little time away from teaching “how-to” and devoting that time to understanding the background rationale of the approach — how it fits into the hermeneutical ecology, as it were. If that works, it would contribute to articulating my own thinking for the students, and would also help students see how various modes of reading relate to one another (and to their starting intuitions about reading and interpreting).
Still, I expect I’ll feel like a Latourian teaching Physics 1.
