Right now, I'm thinking of:
- a unit on reviews (of books, movies, fashion...): Anthony Lane, Pauline Kael, food critics, MFK Fisher even though she's not a reviewer per se
- fiction that either explicitly thematizes judgement, or clearly forces the reader to adopt a position of judgement on character or ethics:
- Kafka's "The Judgement"
- Melville's "Benito Cereno" or "Bartleby"
- Ishiguro's Remains of the Day
- Susan Glaspell's story "A Jury of Her Peers"
- Perhaps one of Flaubert's Three Stories or Gertrude Stein's Three Lives?
- Sneaking in a paragraph or two of Kant
- Perhaps some legal cases and/or critical legal theory, discussing the role of the judge in the legal system as a whole (such as Robert Cover's "Violence and the Word")
