Novel Prospects: Teaching Romantic-Era Fiction

Date published: 

August, 2008
This collection explores the challenges of teaching narrative fiction published between 1789 and 1830. These essays engage with the ways in which Romantic-era fiction challenges not just period conventions, but pedagogical practices and undergraduate scholarship. Topics examined include issues raised by teaching "historical" novels to modern students, reading Jane Austen in a time of war, depictions of racialized bodies in reformist fictions, and situating Romantic fictions in place and social contexts. Emphasizing new possibilities for classroom teaching and demonstrating that scholarly pursuits and teaching need not exist in separate spheres, the essays also offer practical approaches to "folding" Romantic-era fiction into existing course projects at the same time that they examine the questions raised by including texts and writers that, until recently, have been largely ignored.
