Teaching Wharton's Late Fiction

Recent Wharton scholarship has focused attention on her later fiction, particularly the post-1920s novels and their modernist contexts. Participants in this roundtable session will share strategies for teaching Wharton's late fiction (novels, novellas, and short stories). Ideally, we seek proposals across a range of undergraduate and graduate courses (from surveys to special topics courses to graduate seminars) and from different institutions (private liberal arts colleges, research universities, smaller regional universities, etc.). Participants will have 7-10 minutes to share their approach, allowing for discussion among the participants and audience members.

Please send a brief CV and proposals of 250 words (electronic submissions preferred) to Gary Totten by January 16, 2012: gary.totten@ndsu.edu. NDSU English, Dept. 2320, P. O. Box 6050, Fargo, ND 58108-6050
