In April 2019, the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning and Prof. Doris Sommer of Cultural Agents, invited Faculty and Teaching Fellows from across Harvard to participate in a 3-session Pre-Texts workshop.


15 participants played with an excerpt from the “Panopticism” chapter of Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish. The complex text was deconstructed and co-constructed again using playful games and arts.


Participants created sound-scapes and tableaux vivants; learnt about Greek fragment poetry to create their own Foucault fragments; and made cartoneras and perforated art.
