Inclusion, Thresholds, & Pedagogy: A Conversation with Janelle Adsit

20180622_112246

In the video bellow, Janelle Adsit and I discuss her new book Toward an Inclusive Creative Writing: Threshold Concepts to Guide the Literary Writing Curriculum (Bloomsbury, 2017). An absolutely stellar work of pedagogical scholarship, grounded in concrete discussion of the discipline of creative writing and in deep understandings of inclusion and pedagogy, this is undoubtedly one of the most important books published to date on teaching creative writing. But, to me, its relevance extends to teachers in any discipline (though especially the humanities and social sciences) interested in inclusive and effective teaching. A poet and professor at Humboldt State University, Adsit has also edited a forthcoming collection titled Critical Creative Writing.
