A Question of Discipline: Pedagogy, Power, and the Teaching of Cultural Studies

By Joyce E. Canaan; Debbie Epstein | Go to book overview
the old monolithic regime and Las Meninas in particular invites us to participate in this liberation. More than demolish or knock down Velázquez's painting, Picasso's Las Meninas goes against his world, against the values that that painting implies' ( Palau Fabre 1981: 140).

The difficulties of using academic language to understand these egalitarian practices of popular culture remained apparent in the literary circle through the occasional participation of people from the university. One of these situations occurred when we were reading and commenting on Don Quixote ( Cervantes, 1950). One university student interrupted the debate to try and explain the book to people whom she considered to be at a lower cultural level. At a particular moment, she explained that he was a knight errant because he had always read novels of knighthood. The ensemble of participants, because the greater part of the sixth chapter (at the beginning of the first volume) is dedicated to commenting on the books that Don Quixote owned ( Cervantes, 1950: 56), saw that there were many books not about knighthood. Like many others from the university, this student had read and heard much discussion about Don Quixote, but had not enjoyed reading the book as the participants in this popular literary circle had.
