Event Description:
Faculty Lecture:

Rachel Buurma (Associate Professor of English) and Laura Heffernan (Assistant Professor of English at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville) present “The Teaching Archive: A New History for English Literary Studies”

Professors Buurma and Heffernan's co-authored work, which has appeared in New Literary History, Victorian Studies, and Representations, offers a new archive for writing the history of English: the heterogeneous documents produced in the English literature classroom over the course of the long twentieth century. This presentation overviews their book project before offering two brief case studies drawn from the book’s earliest chapters on working class university extension education in London around World War I.  Drawing on syllabi, administrative documents, personal letters, and teaching notes, the authors profile the practices and methods of extension school tutorials for working class adults before turning to look more closely at two such courses: the Modern English Literature class T. S. Eliot conducted at Southall between 1916 and 1919 and the Art of Reading class taught by early modernist Caroline Spurgeon at Bedford College in 1916.
