Approaches to Teaching Great Expectations


Michelle Allen-Emerson and Peter J. Capuano are developing a new volume in the MLA’s Approaches to Teaching World Literature series: Approaches to Teaching Dickens’s Great Expectations. The editors and the MLA are interested in pedagogical approaches from the broadest range of perspectives possible. Interested contributors should submit

  • an abstract of no more than 300 words in which you describe your approach or topic and explain its usefulness for both students and instructors. The focus of your essay should be pedagogical, and the abstract should be as specific as possible.
  • a short CV
  • optional supplemental materials (e.g., course descriptions, course plans, syllabi, assignments)


Please direct submissions and queries to the volume editors:
