Fall 2012 Courses at Rutgers


The descriptions of my course offerings for the fall—my first semester as a member of the Rutgers English faculty!—are now online on the English department website. I am teaching 350:355 Twentieth Century Fiction I, an introductory course on early-twentieth century novels and stories from James to Hurston to Anand. I also teaching a seminar, 350:437 Popular Reading: Low to Middling Genres, 1890–1945, which surveys the key genres—like mystery and thriller—of that period of widespread pleasure reading.

I am hoping some interested students may find this page. I’ve added descriptions of these upcoming courses to my teaching page, which shows what kinds of courses I’ve taught in the past. I invite any interested student to contact me at my personal e-mail address with questions about my courses.
