Teaching Laura Kipnis's "Love's Labors" in "Ways of Reading"
Fike, Matthew A.
CEA Forum, v42 n2 p61-78 Sum-Fall 2013
This essay describes a method of teaching a very challenging anthology piece: Laura Kipnis's "Love's Labors" (chapter 1 of her 2003 "Against Love: A Polemic"). The method, although designed for a critical thinking course, should also provide resources for those who teach Kipnis's work in writing courses. Using the elements of critical thinking, the essay analyzes a difficult text and provides a range of questions and exercises that will complement the instructors' guide to "Ways of Reading," 9th edition. The guide suggests a sociological approach; the present essay aims to investigate the chapter's psychological material.
