For my remix I would like to revisit Luhmann Queering/querying pedagogy.
When we first visited this article, I thought the concept was less than interesting. I thought the she was over complicating the educational system. While I understand the space of the University is problematic, the language she used seemed to defeat her point (in my opinion).
I loved the way in which this class was approached. Using the class as a way to disrupt normative class structure, added to my understanding of queer theory. Often I did not feel as if there was an authority figure in the class. Which made giving an opinion, or contributing did not feel like a struggle. I do think that it is important to look back on the work we have done. But I do wonder if it had been this way if the class was bigger. I think this form of education is better in a smaller setting. I thing the environment was one that was more excepting of different opinions. I have a greater understanding of difficult readings such as Butler due to having multiple ways of connecting with the readings. For example, what we discuss in class can be moved to the blog or twitter. It also help to be able to read blog entries of others to deepen my understanding or see topics from other view points. When I look back at the Luhmann article I understand more clearly what she was asserting. I do like that I have a way to look back at work, and have the opportunity to share with other. As long as it is available!! When others ask what is queer theory I can refer them to this blog. It is helpful, this is not the easiest topic to explain.
