How has the historicist turn in literary studies changed undergraduate teaching? What do historicist and/or materialist scholars teach, how, and with (or without) what kinds of materials? Inviting perspectives from the range of languages and fields represented by the MLA, this roundtable session invites proposals for presentations that either theorize principles in historicist pedagogy or present examples of syllabi, course texts, classroom practices, and assignments informed by historicist approaches to scholarship. Submit a 300-word abstract by Sept. 30 to the NeMLA website (registration required):
