Teaching Initiatives

Pre-Texts: Pre-texts is an initiative through the Romance Language and Literatures Department at Harvard University.  It is headed by Doris Sommer and it integrates the arts into academic learning in order to promote passionate engagement in the learning of literacy and higher-level textual analysis.  Pre-texts is appropriate for all education levels and socioeconomic statuses, since it makes creative use of everyday items.

Pre-texts offers a variety of workshops, training and resources around Cambridge and throughout Latin America, Asia, and Africa.  Check out pre-texts.org for more information and ample resources.
