Toril Moi (Duke University) — who, with her colleague Sarah Beckwith, has been running an exciting working group at Duke on “Ordinary Language Philosophy and the Aesthetic” — will be teaching a graduate seminar this fall on Stanley Cavell’s The Claim of Reason. In an email to me, she mentioned that it would be nice to know if anyone else is teaching courses devoted to Cavell in the next year or so, and she suggested that I post a query on this blog to find out. I thought this was a great idea: so, I would be grateful if you would take a moment and email me to let me know if you (or someone you know, or just know of) will be teaching a course — either in 2009-10 or 2010-11 — in which substantial time (even if not the whole term) will be devoted to Cavell’s writings. In 2010-11, I myself plan to teach a course on the essays collected in Must We Mean What We Say?, and I too would love to find out who else out there will be devoting significant class time to Cavell’s work.
I will post the results on this blog sometime later this month. Thanks for your help!
