EXPERIENCE CLASSIC WORKS THROUGH A CONTEMPORARY LENS
Welcome to my World Literature class! I hope to share with you my love for ancient and medieval texts and the greatest hits of the Renaissance period. My ELA class is a fast-paced survey which is probably the last class you will ever have taught by someone who studied years of Latin and ancient Greek (since Classics Departments have all but gone away), philosophy & Medieval History. In my quest for truth and knowledge, I did grad English and grad everything else in two great college towns, Madison, WI and Bloomington, IN, with some English at Columbia University. I have a BA in English and Classical Languages from the University of Texas in Austin and an MA in Library and Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin.
I am a big believer in cultivating appreciation for literature, history and art, examining what people like about it and why. My personal motto, which I try to incorporate into my teaching, is “The more things you like in life, the happier you will be.” Reading selections from the classics to contemporary fiction, my students will be exposed to a wide variety of genres, themes and styles.
