Abstract (summary)
In discussing the pedagogy of political theory, this year’s workshop participants acknowledged previous—and as yet unresolved—difficulties. These debates covered the tension between pursuing breadth and depth, the assignment of primary versus secondary sources and the use of excerpts rather than full texts. However, the papers at this year’s workshop, ably organized by Michelle Deardorff, largely bypassed these controversies.
