At UNG, I teach upper-division courses like “American Modernism,” “Seeing Race in Literature, Law, and Film,” and “Marx, Nietzsche, Freud.” I also regularly teach literature surveys such as American Literature since 1865, African-American Literature, and Multicultural American Literature.
I am currently designing a seminar on American Science Fiction. Here’s the syllabus-in-progress . I’m always looking for recommendations!
At other institutions, I have taught courses in which students explored American literary history from the Civil War to the Cold War through recently digitized collections like Cornell’s Making of America and the Modernist Journals Project. In our last unit at Georgia Tech we used Omeka to create our own archive of Science Fiction magazines from Tech’s SF Collection. Afterwards, I wrote a short pedagogy piece describing this process: “Teaching Modernism through Little Magazines.”
