Nearing the one-year anniversary -- if such a term applies -- of my dissertation defence, I am taking this opportunity to mark the occasion by chatting about an author I've spent around a decade of my life studying: Douglas Coupland.
In this episode, I talk about teachin' Coupland's novel JPod (2006) in a third-year Canadian literature course. Of note, from the episode: feeling unprepared but doing things anyway; forms of reading and how they're validated in teaching and learning spaces (what about skimming, skipping, scrolling?); and teaching a difficult text which includes material that's tough to navigate using traditional methods of literary study. And more!
