CFP Traveling With Gulliver, around Campus--Teaching Tools

full name / name of organization: 
Joel Sodano, University at Albany & Michael Brown, University of Aberdeen
contact email: 
jsodano@albany.edu, m.brown@abdn.ac.uk

This call for proposals is inspired by the versatile, prescient and even protean prose of Dr. Swift’s most well-known work, Gulliver’s Travels (1726). If Gulliver had a “tenure home” it would definitely be in the department of English; however, because of its relevance to so many disciplinary fields (economics, history, philosophy, to name the most obvious) Gulliver’s Travels is finding itself in an increasingly interdisciplinary range of college courses. This CFP seeks a variety of pedagogy-oriented submissions that give insight into the ways Gulliver’s Travels is taught in higher education.
