Representing the Self

2 Jul

I am interested in running a unit entitled ‘Representing the Self’ as a way of introducing students in Year 9 or 10 to the choices made by composers when creating or adapting autobiographical and biographic texts.

Interesting possible questions to discuss could include:

(1) What are the difficulties of representing reality?

(2) Whose perspectives matter?

(3) For what purposes are biographical and autobiographical texts created?

(4) How does one represent the self?
