I learned this week that my proposed presentation, “The Pros and Cons of Steampunking a C19 Syllabus,” was accepted for the C19 (Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists) 2020 Conference.
The presentation will be part of the “Teaching the Weird Nineteenth Century” panel put together by Erin Pearson and moderated by Duncan Faherty. It’s in Coral Gables, Florida this April.
I’m going to start it by referencing this snarky, awesomely titled Vice article. Other portions will come partly from my class last summer and partly from first-year seminars I’ve taught.
