Survey and Call for Proposals on

 Great Expectations

 for a new volume in the MLA’s Approaches to Teaching World Literature series


Approaches to Teaching Dickens's Great Expectations,

ed. by Michelle Allen-Emerson and Peter J. Capuano


This survey is designed to gather information about the methods and materials used by instructors when teaching Dickens’s Great Expectations. The purpose is to develop a new volume on the topic in the MLA series Approaches to Teaching World Literature.

The editors, and the MLA, are interested in pedagogical approaches from the broadest range of perspectives as possible. Respondents are invited to provide concrete answers to the questions related to their teaching and are also encouraged to submit a proposal for a contribution to the volume. Requirements for submitting an essay proposal are included in item 16 at the end of the survey. Both proposals and survey responses are due 1 March 2024, after which the survey will no longer be available.

Thank you for helping in the development of this important project.
