Abstract:

I believe that political scientists can improve student learning by teaching across the discipline and adopting a “novel approach” to political science, especially in introductory level courses. While not specifically challenging the role of the traditional textbook, at the very least, I believe that traditional approaches can be supplemented by the introduction of literature in general and novels in particular. By focusing on three novels, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 (1953), Ursula Le Guin’s The Dispossessed (1974), and Kurt Vonnegut’s Player Piano (1980), I would like to demonstrate how political scientists can improve student learning and engagement in introductory courses (Introduction to Political Science, Public Administration, Comparative Government, Political Philosophy), by teaching across the discipline.
