Reasonable and Reasonable

A separate direction of the Literary Laboratory of the Art Arsenal is collaboration with secondary school teachers. One of the goals is to familiarize teachers with the latest trends in approaches to the study and interpretation of writers' texts and biographies. So, we called this direction "Understanding literature."

One of the first results of our work was the lecture project "Reasonable and Reasonable". We have suggested that professional literary critics should not be restricted to the university audience, but share knowledge with the teachers of Ukrainian literature. Such a format involves stories about little-known facts from the life of classics, new reading of well-known works of the school program, as well as an overview of the main theses of the key scientific monographs needed to understand the identity of each writer. This is a presentation in the popular form of aspects, the coverage of which does not always make textbooks.

Each of the ten lectures that cover the school canon of literature from Skovoroda to Stus is an author's development; she is unique every time, because the lecturer collaborates with the audience, responds to it and, accordingly, is not limited to the text prepared, but continues its monologue according to the reaction of the listeners, their level of preparation, questions and answers during the presentation of the material.

Video recordings of lectures are publicly available - and therefore accessible to professional audiences and anyone who wants to learn new things regardless of geography and time of day.
