Teachers interested in Literature, Philosophy, Critical Pedagogies and AS and IGCSE teachers


We will aim at:
- Deconstructing the literary representation of the human in Paradise Lost and giving it a posthuman turn.
- Exploring characters that depict the human, the non-human, the transhuman and the inhuman.
- Approaching Paradise Lost from the perspective of Posthuman Pedagogy.
-Carrying forward a systematic instrumental analysis of the literary text to suit the AS Cambridge exam.


- Theory
• Framing the context: the Anthropocene.
• Exploring the new paradigmatic crisis: Humanism vs The Posthuman.
• Defining the object of study: the human, the anti-human, the inhuman.

- Pedagogy
• Posthuman Pedagogy: helping learners engage critically and empathically.
• Presenting key notions.
• Exploring hands-on approaches to the literary text.
• Systematizing an instrumental reading of the literary text through the lens of posthuman theory and pedagogy to meet the needs of AS students.


Methodology 1)Presentation and discussion of how to approach literary texts through posthuman approaches. 2)Exploration of the object of study Paradise Lost in the light of the framework proposed to enrich Cambridge AS-oriented classes and to propose innovative approaches to the language and literature classes. 3)Instrumental reading and systematic analysis of Paradise Lost (extracts from Books I, IX and X) to cater for AS classes. 4)Presentation of Posthuman Pedagogy, its main tenets and its didactic implications and contribution to intercultural education.
