Teaching Romanticism in the Anthropocene

Date published: 

June, 2020
The essays on Teaching Romanticism in the Anthropocene collected in this volume craft an intersectional Romantic pedagogy of resistance to human-made climate change in the Anthropocene. The contributors variously demonstrate across texts, periods, and media that such a pedagogy rejects ideas about “humans as one unified species” and seeks instead a dialogue between race, class, gender, sexuality, nonhumans, and queer alignments, among others.

“Vulnerability and Ambition in Romantic, Modern, and Contemporary Poetry,” a recorded interview with Brian McGrath (Walt Hunter)

In this recorded interview, Brian McGrath and Walt Hunter, colleagues and romantic and contemporary poetry scholars respectively, discuss the usefulness of teaching contemporary poetry in the romanticism classroom, and vice versa.

Teaching Jane Austen

Date published: 

April, 2015
The essays collected here describe curricular ideas, innovations, and practices that seek to move us beyond simple questions of Austen’s accessibility, relevance, and context. The contributors ask how we might enrich the teaching of Austen’s fiction by seeing her in conversation with manuscript culture, children’s literature, Harry Potter, or Romantic poetry. Collectively, these essays look to what it means to teach Austen in many kinds of classes and classrooms, with differently located learners and with a variety of texts, tools, and assignments.
