At Georgia Tech, I taught a pair of courses approaching American literary history through the evolving medial conditions and political aspirations. My students and I are exploring 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, we’ll be using Omeka to create our own archive of Science Fiction magazines from Tech’s SF Collection. Here’s our full syllabus.
As a lecturing fellow at the Johannes Gutenberg Universität in Mainz, Germany, I taught African-American Modernisms, Introduction to Critical Theory, and a seminar on the Fictions of American Liberalism. At the University of California, Davis, I taught Anglophone Literatures since 1900, Introduction to Literature, and several courses in freshman composition.
