UiO’s annual Faglig-pedagogisk dag presents new research in a series of lectures for teachers and others who workin the educational sector. At this year’s event, which will be held digitally, LCE’s Olivia Fialho will present a lecture.

Literature, Cognition, Emotions: Transformative reading in the classroom

29 October, 11:15-12:00, Zoom.

Many say that literature can change your life. How has this been researched? And what are the pedagogical applications in the literature classroom? 

In this lecture, Olivia Fialho will present recent work on how reading literature changes the perception of ourselves and the perception of others in a process called "transformative reading". She will introduce an educational programme for young adult students, which brings empirical research on the effects of reading to bear on how these students are guided in their insights into fictional and real selves.
