Slimer, Slime, and the Thingness of Pedagogy
Sojot, Amy N.
Educational Perspectives, v51 n1 p8-12 2019
This paper is organized around five sections. The first section provides a brief background on post foundational inquiry and new materialism, two approaches that frame the conversation regarding sensation, thingness, and pedagogy. Following this introduction, further section titles incorporate dialogue from the Slimer scene. The next two sections address pedagogy and sensation. The following two sections use Slimer to explore the thingness of pedagogy and implications for the role of embodiment in education. This order accomplishes two things: one, it establishes the specific approach to pedagogy and sensation used here and two, it provides a foundation for understanding how a new materialist approach can inform educational possibilities.
