In Teaching Literature scholars explain how they think about their everyday experience in the classroom, using the tools of their ongoing scholarly projects and engaging with current debates in literary studies. Until recently, teaching has played second fiddle to literary research as a mode of knowledge in academia, leaving new teachers with nowhere to turn for advice about teaching and no forum for discussion of the difficulties and opportunities they face in the classroom.
Tanya Agathocleous is a graduate student at Rutgers University. Ann C. Dean is Assistant Professor of English and Director of College Writing, University of Southern Maine.
