11:10 am-12:00 pmHAIG lecture: Jill Heinrich and Kerry Bostwick, "The 18th Century Salonniere." Thomas Commons
Jill Heinrich (Professor of Education) and Kerry Bostwick (T. Herbert and Clara B. Kelley Professor of Education) will co-present "The 18th Century Salonniere: How Constructivism Courted Genius in the Enlightenment Salon." This interdisciplinary study examines the 18th-century French salonniere's influence on the Enlightenment albeit through a contemporary pedagogical framework. Specifically, it examines the salonniere's appropriation of what were essentially constructivist principles to regulate the discourse of her male guests and thereby establish a democratic space that fostered mutual respect and collaboration. Hence, we suggest that it was through the auspices of social constructivism, then, that the salonniere inextricably linked herself to and advanced the Enlightenment cause. Please join us as Kerry and Jill lead us through their fascinating study, which is currently being reviewed for journal publication.
