Colleagues--I return apologizing for the disruption my earlier
questions caused, but now, since I am addressing only those who are
interested in discussion, I feel more at ease.
This message is to announce a new feature of the MJP web site (URL
below in the signature). We have introduced a teaching unit. What
we hope to get from you, to begin with, and other teachers, as we go
along, are materials from courses on modern periodicals that you have
taught (especially courses that have used the MJP digital archive,
though not limited to such courses).
We would like any or all of three things:
1. course syllabi (with level and date)--this is most important
2. reading and writing assignments for each course--would be quite useful
3 samples of student work from each course--very nice to have (with
permission from the students, of course)
We would also like a sentence or two of biographical information
about the teacher, which we hope you can provide. If you send the
materials to me, I will arrange to get them up on the site. (Please
don't send them to the whole list. I don't want to get in trouble again :'( )
If you have questions, please ask me (not the whole list). But do
look at the pages on the site first. Just click on the word
"teaching" in the site menu. You will find there the first three
entries, which, as it happens, are from people whose names you are
likely to recognize. But we want this to be open to everyone from
teaching assistants to venerable scholars who are willing to share
with us their course syllabi and other materials.
We also want it to be open to those who might like to use this
material as a point of departure for courses of their own in modern
periodicals. Feel free to download and use these pedagogical concepts.
My best wishes to you all,
Professor of Modern Culture and Media (Research)
Co-Director Modernist Journals Project
