Teaching World Literature at the Boundaries: Methods, Approaches, and Practices

This roundtable seeks to explore new approaches to the teaching of world literature to college undergraduates, especially those in survey courses. How can we introduce students to traditional issues of national myths and exile in new and innovative ways? What are the boundaries of 'world literature' and how can we shape our syllabi and course goals to extend to exciting horizons beyond these limits? All approaches welcome: We want to have a lively discussion about pedagogy and teaching, so be prepared to give - and receive - handouts, syllabi, etc.!
