PGR Weekly Forum tomorrow (Thursday 22 October)

The theme of tomorrow’s PGR forum, which will take place at 17:00 in ER153, is:

Approaching and Interpreting Texts: What we read, how we read.

This week’s forum will be a discussion about how we study texts, and the theoretical and practical ideas we use and apply in our respective disciplines and languages. How do we approach a text? Do we privilege the reader or the writer? How do we read, and how do we experience the act of reading? When we have a text in front of us, what do we do? No prior preparation is necessary, so please come along to share your thoughts and ideas. For those of you who want to get your teeth into something theoretical beforehand, however, the suggested reading for this session is Wolfgang Iser’s ‘The Reading Process: A Phenomenological Approach’, which you can find on jstor (http://www.jstor.org/stable/468316?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents).
