LITERATURE PROJECTS

Student work

Students created adaptations of our texts as a way to draw out specific thematic developments.

Students lead discussion boards by posting their own 3-minute podcast episodes that their peers then responded to

Students created thematic Victorian journals in which they contributed cultural commentary, literary analysis, and even a few original creative works.

 

ADAPTATION RESPONSES

Students in a range of literature courses used adaptation as a way to engage with the themes in the texts we discussed. Adaptation is a way to also add diverse voices in literary traditions that tend to favor white male traditions.

A Pre-Lecture Podcast

BRITISH LITERATURE BEFORE 1800

During a semester of forced online teaching, I decided to make use of the podcast platform to jumpstart the week's readings and to minimize the time students needed to stream live video materials for the course. The result was a 16-week series of episodes for students to reference throughout the semester and to guide our live-streamed lectures.

During a second semester of forced online teaching, I decided to build on the previous podcast platform and build a series that incorporated guest scholar interviews as well as student-led episodes in the Students and Scholars podcast.
