The Office Hour, Chapter 9: “One Week Out”


On this week’s podcast, Toby and I are joined by Brittain Fellows Anna Ioanes and Jennifer Forsthoefel to discuss our experiences, realizations, thoughts, and fears as teachers and scholars in the week since Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States. We begin by discussing Daveena Tauber’s “Post-Election College Paper Grading Rubric,” and also touch on David Tollerton’s “In the age of Trump, why bother teaching students to argue logically?”

Listeners beware: oddly enough, this podcast contains extensive spoilers of Bong Joon-ho’s 2013 film, Snowpiercer.
