Listening to: She's Like Heroin - System of a Down
Reading: Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
I thought I would be disappointed by the lack of (potential) class discussions this semester at uni, because I'm not doing a philosophy subject at the moment. But between three creative writing subjects (fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry) and a children's literature unit, I'm surprised at how good some of the conversations have been.
Last year, in philosophy, I got to enjoy class discussions about love, sex, death, and religion, which flowed into conversations about pornography, prostitution, abortion, euthanasia and suicide, and the issues surrounding them, just to name a few. While this year hasn't touched on any of those so far (keep in mind, it's only week 6 of classes) I'm looking forward to some healthy class discussions about refugees and asylum seekers, colonization, and the native people of a land, especially as they relate to the books we are studying in children's literature.
What are some great class discussions you've had?
Peace, love, and rock out.
