In short, this challenge concerns turning one's attention toward the radically banal practices of everyday life so as to rethink what precisely thinking may be. Second, the Performance Philosophy Community of Practice at Brown University will respond to this proposal. Together, the two will discuss a recent pedagogical experiment inaugurating a new branch of what we call The Invisible College and elaborate on the stakes of such pedagogical experimentation in the present day. This event is sponsored by The Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning at Brown.
