In beautifully written prose, Felman invites us to take a seat and watch her one-woman show. This is where the feminist classroom meets live guerilla theater and once the show has begun, learning becomes interactive, intentionally dramatic and fully engaging as it was always meant to be. No one is left behind, bored or disinterested. All the cast, students, teaching assistants, as well as the professor, become intellectually open and vulnerable to the world of ideas.
A dramatic transformation of the traditional classroom, Never A Dull Moment challenges the reader to rethink the nature of learning and shows what can happen in the act of teaching. In the process, Felman takes on some of the most important issues on college campuses today, including: identity politics, sexual harassment, race relations, eating disorders, tenure, and the value of teaching. Felman suggests the prototype for a new kind of educator -- bold, effective, and visionary. This is a performance not to be missed.
