How to crip the dictionary: A pedagogical proposal for ancient language study

This talk combines a meditation on the politics of Greek-English lexicography with a proposal for a speculative pedagogical collaboration called the “Anti-Lexicon.” The essential aim of the Anti-Lexicon is to challenge and expand the range of meanings that make themselves available to twenty-first century students and scholars of ancient languages and cultures, with awareness of the implicit exclusionary ideologies that have operated within the history of the discipline of Classics. Steeped in questions emerging from disability justice, crip pedagogy, and the language(s) of disability, this talk invites students and teachers of Classics to consider how we might practice non-traditional acts of lexicography as inclusive collaborations geared toward cultivating more nuanced understandings of ancient linguistic meaning in the classroom.
