This year, C19 will be starting a new feature called #TeachingC19. With this ongoing platform we will publish short interviews with C19 members, short reflections on pedagogy, and a bank of syllabi comprising diverse approaches to teaching 19th-century American literature. #TeachingC19 will aim to highlight pedagogical work as a key aspect of our engagement with the long nineteenth century. In developing this feature over time, we hope to build an archive of pedagogy-related resources so that the C19 community can learn from one another not only as scholars but also as teachers.
