Few American writers have enjoyed the posthumous popularity of Poe, whose works inspire adaptations in various genres such as film and graphic novel while lunchboxes and bobblehead figures commemorate the man himself. Such popularity is a boon for teachers of Poe, who can use movies, comic books, and online videos to help students make sense of a nineteenth-century writer whose stories and poems might seem, at first glance, peculiar and puzzling. Contemporary creative reinterpretations of Poe's writings also provide insight into how we remove Poe from his antebellum milieu and refashion him to suit our tastes.
Introduction to Literature: Unique Approaches for Teaching Commonly Assigned Texts is a newly developing blog page which will feature blog posts that include theoretical foundations and assignment specifics as well as narratives of reflective practice for many of the most frequently assigned literary works in introductory-level literature courses.

Submissions of assignments for both face-to-face and online classrooms are encouraged; additionally, contributors are welcomed to discuss how one assignment could be successfully implemented both face-to-face and online.

On the occasion of the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo, the Centre for Reception Studies (http://www.receptionstudies.be) of
the University of Leuven organizes a conference on the transnational reception of the event in the 19th century. Recent scholarship has compellingly demonstrated that the Battle evoked incisive socio-political and cultural responses that deeply impacted 19th-century aesthetic theory and production, as well as ideas of nationhood, history, community and cultural memory. Within an interdisciplinary framework of literary criticism and historiography, reception and cultural memory studies, we welcome papers
