Discussion Notes

Reflections on the History of and Idea - Can the Subaltern Speak?As a class, we discussed a selection of critical essays from Rosalind C. Morris’s edited collection, Reflections on the History of and Idea: Can the Subaltern Speak?. Working in groups, students team-taught these essays and created infographics based on their discussion notes. These infographics thus highlight the contents of the critical essays as well as the trajectory of our class discussions.
