Why Literature Matters: Voices from Nineteenth-Century Britain and America

A four-week seminar for sixteen school teachers on nineteenth-century American and British literature.

Linked to both the NEH initiative on "The Common Good" and the annual conference of the Dickens Project, this four-week seminar (July 8 to August 3, 2018) will bring sixteen school teachers to the UCSC campus to study classic American and British literature of the nineteenth century. Texts will include both canonical literary works and recent theoretical perspectives on the nature of reading, with the goal of encouraging participants to generate new conceptions of the value of literary study and new pedagogical methods capable of meeting the diverse challenges currently facing those who teach the humanities.
