Spring 2013 Courses

*This course is based on the project begun in Fall 2011: Library Exhibit & Digital Scholarly Edition of Beardsley, Wilde/Alastair, Pater rare books (collaborative work performed by a team of students)

Fall 2013 Courses*

  • TechnoLiterature (Engl. 10)
  • Introduction to Literary Criticism (Engl. 101)
  • British Literature Survey 1800-Present (Engl. 56B)
  • Introduction to Digital Humanities (LIBR. 220)

*In the past, I have maintained course websites and detailed schedules that were updated daily. This semester, I am working on migrating my online material to a different format (perhaps Wordpress?). All of the above courses are based on courses that I have taught in the past (see below). Watch for new online course materials for the Spring classes to be put up very soon. In the meantime, see some of my blog posts about this semester's teaching adventures over on FairMatter.com or triproftri
