9/4/2016 9/6 Assignment: The New Humanities Reader -> Reading Lolita in Tehran | Evernote Web 9/6 Assignment: The New Humanities Reader -> Reading Lolita in Tehran Preface: Q: What is this book about? Universities (higher education) has the power to impart a broader view ­> paradigms, that are circulating through nonfiction prose, that make events in the world more coherent The essay ("prose argument") through nonfiction prose is the "genre of our time." (p. xv) The metaphor of connection has replaced old view of searching origins "Reaching out is better than closing down" Practice connective thinking; use writing as a way of thinking new thoughts C: Students starting college should write about nonfiction that explores the major themes of their time. Intro: Q: Why was this book written? What is the purpose of the New Humanities? Questions are important Should write even when they don't know exactly what to say Writing should lead the reader through a thinking process a journey of the mind much deeper and nuanced C: Students should be able to think for themselves, while reading and writing about important issues. What matters more is questions, not answers. The book should offer trust in the world and in ourselves. New Humanities ­> way of thinking that connects many different fields of study. Reading Lolita in Tehran:… 1/2 9/4/2016 9/6 Assignment: The New Humanities Reader -> Reading Lolita in Tehran | Evernote Web Q: Nafisi said that she couldn't write about Lolita without also writing about Tehran. Why not? (p. 294) "Both embody the 'fragile unreality' ­ to quote Nabokov on his own state of exile ­ of our existence in the Islamic Republic of Iran" (p. 295) "And like Lolita, we took every opportunity to flaunt our insubordination." "An absurd fictionality ruled our lives..." (p. 296) "Whoever we were ­... not really important...we had become the figment of someone else's dreams" "These girls...had both a real history and a fabricated one." C: Writing about Lolita gave Nafisi an alternate reality with which she and her group lived which governed the actual reality of their life in Tehran. The ideas they explored through reading gave them inspiration and imagination to deal with the current issues. Q: What does it mean to read Reading Lolita in Tehran in an American classroom? discussed relation between fiction and reality the readers are necessary for fighting against tyranny (p. 381) "I need you...for we won't really exist if you don't." C: According to Nafisi, being free to talk and think together in small groups, in a spontaneous and free fashion, is a true indicator of a legitimate democracy. Therefore, if we really believe that America is a true democracy, every classroom ought to be able to talk and think about these issues in small groups like Nafisi did. Doing this molds us all together, beyond all of our differences and divisions.… 2/2
