Teaching Modernist Women’s Writing

Forthcoming…

The goal for the proposed volume Options for Teaching Modernist Women’s Writing in English (under contract with MLA Publications) is to provide a resource for faculty and scholars at all levels and in many relevant fields for the teaching of women’s writing in modernist studies (primarily in English), including looking at current professional and pedagogical trends and new developments in the field. The audience for this title comprises, among others, teachers of undergraduate and graduate students; and of British and American/transatlantic/global/world literature, literary criticism/the history of literary criticism/feminist literary criticism, women’s/gender studies, gay and lesbian studies, queer studies, and modernist/20th-century studies.

Highlights include comparative, interdisciplinary, and intersectional approaches; a focus on the digital humanities and digital pedagogy; emphases on sexuality, class, race, globalism/imperialism/postcolonialism; responses to World War One and World War Two as well as the Spanish Civil War; and women writers’ engagements with popular culture, material culture, periodical culture, and the “middlebrow.” All of these are informed by a shifting scholarly landscape and evolving pedagogical practice, and they reflect the expanding of modernist studies to include previously neglected figures and questions and to encompass multiple “modernisms” (high, inter, and late; geographical, temporal, and vertical).
