Teaching First World War Texts: A Dialogue between Literature and History

Seeking proposals for a roundtable (4 panelists) offering interesting and
pedagogically articulate approaches to teaching First World War texts.
The aim of the roundtable is to foster a discussion largely between
teachers of literature and history—keeping in mind the complexly related
and often multi-focal nature of both disciplines. Stronger proposals
will correlate a specific classroom approach with a general pedagogical
underpinning.

A few questions/topics to consider:

**Texts and Interpretation: What authors, genres, nationalities,
    scholarship/criticism do you use? What is the basis for these
    selections? How do you present these materials? How do you expect
    students to read/interpret/work with them?
**Curricular context: In what courses (literature or history) do you
    teach First World War texts—topic, period, survey? Lower-division,
    upper-division, graduate? How do you integrate First World War texts
    into more generalized courses (if applicable)?
**Most importantly, how are your text selection and mode of reading these
    texts informed by both the curricular context and your pedagogy
    (how you relate literature and history)?
