CTP Lunch and Learn
Thursday, September 26,
Featured Scholar: Nancy Nelson, PhD.
Visiting Scholar and LSU Professor Emerita
“The Questions Places Ask You: The Local in the Global”
Invisible Cities, written by Italo Calvino, is an imagined dialogue between Marco Polo
and Kublai Khan. After describing one of the cities he visited, Marco says, “You take delight
not in a city’s seven or seventy wonders, but in the answer it gives to a question of yours.”
To that statement, Khan responds wisely: “Or the question it asks you, forcing you to
answer.” This Lunch and Learn Session led by Dr. Nancy Nelson is a travel narrative in which
she will “take” us to particular places she has visited that ask important cultural,
sociopolitical, and/or theoretical questions relevant to educators. Among these places are
Venice and Padova, Italy; Corpus Christi, Texas, US; Havana, Cuba; Dubrovnik, Croatia;
Barcelona, Spain; and Soweto, South Africa. The questions relate to academic identity,
border lives, mestizaje and Latinidad, interculturality, and linguistic hegemony.
Professor Nancy Nelson has returned to LSU for the 2019-20 academic year as a visiting
scholar. From 1994 to 2005 she was on the faculty of LSU, where she was the first to hold
the Elena and Albert LeBlanc Endowed Professorship. Her research over the years has
focused on literacy processes and practices, and she is best known for my research in
academic writing and discourse synthesis. Some of her work, including the book The
Constructivist Metaphor, was published under the name Nancy Nelson Spivey. Other
universities where she has taught include Carnegie Mellon University, the College of William
and Mary, and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. They also include, most recently, the
University of North Texas, where she held the Meadows Endowed Chair for Excellence in
Education and received the university’s 2019 Citation for Distinguished Service to
Sponsored by the Curriculum Theory Project School of Education, the Lunch and
Learn Series is an effort to allow faculty and students to learn from fellow colleagues
and to present works in progress to the scholastic community. All students and faculty
are welcome. Free refreshments will be provided.
