Description

Affective pedagogies: A new materialist approach to teaching literature

Dr Beatriz Revelles Benavente (University of Barcelona, Spain)

Feminist Affect and in/and Education

Professor Anna Hickey-Moody (RMIT, Melbourne)


These papers adopt an intentionally broad definition of technology that covers digital media, practices of teaching and learning and, indeed, the ways in which we become subjects. Technologies of the self, of language, of gender, of thought are considered in different ways in both the papers, as Revelles Benavente and Hickey-Moody offer perspectives on teaching and learning that are located in the cultural, material and everyday experiences of acquiring new knowledges. Often the ways we learn are responses to the materials involved in processes of learning. Games, online learning communities, art materials, the child learning alongside you: children's learning assemblages are always already material, psycho-social and mediated by non human agents. Further, the genealogies of knowledge mobilized in considering the materialities of learning remain gendered in ways that reproduce patriarchal knowledge structures. Developing a feminist canon of affect, both scholars adopt a feminist theory of affective pedagogy to illustrate the material-cultural-psychosocial processes of learning that children and young people experience in online and offline learning environments.
