This panel demonstrates how contemplative reading disrupts the habits and demands of digital culture while cultivating habits of mind that foster focus and insight in classroom contexts. Panelists will explore the roles of pleasure, creativity, playfulness, and experimentation in designing and implementing contemplative reading assignments and activities. While embedded in different contexts, panelists employ contemplative reading to similar ends, including developing ethical sensibility, listening to the voices of the imagined, and cultivating generosity towards the unknown. During the facilitated discussion, we hope to learn from all attendees how classroom reading practices may transform habits and behaviors beyond those walls to promote a more just society. Panelists will distribute detailed assignments and activities for all attendees.
