Scholarly interest in world literature is on the rise, yet this endeavor has more often taken place in academic writing and colloquia than in teaching. This session will explore various ways to bring theories of world literature into classrooms and institutions, which are necessarily limited in scope and scale. We hope to include questions regarding use of translations, pairing of texts, periodizing, genre, cultural and historical context, the literature classroom, and literary value (high/low). Pedagogical research is welcome, as are theoretical and exploratory papers on the topic of world literature pedagogy.

Please feel free to contact the organizer with any questions you might have.
