The Immediate Classroom: Feminist Pedagogy and Peter Brook's "The Empty Space."
Burroughs, Catherine B.
Feminist Teacher, v5 n2 p10-14 Fall 1990
Presents an analogy between classroom space utilization and Peter Brook's 1968 play, "The Empty Space," used in a modern, dramatic literature, college course. Taught from a feminist and student-centered perspective, students configured the classroom and class members as part of their dramatic readings. Stresses the indispensability of emptiness to personal liberation and to rebirth of imagination. (CH)
