English Language Notes 47.1 (Spring/Summer 2009) Special Issue: Experimental Literary Education

English Language Notes 47.1 (Spring/Summer 2009)
  Special Issue:  Experimental Literary Education
  Editor: Jeffrey C. Robinson

ELN 47.1 (Spring/Summer 2009), a special issue on Experimental Literary Education, brings together twenty-four essays by  nationally and internationally recognized scholars and writers reporting on a wide  range of new possibilities for higher education in the literary arts.  Some  essays address the dramatic changes in aspects of the field, that imply a  radical reshifting of educational experience; others assume such changes in detailed  testimonials about learning activities within and beyond or in revised versions  of the traditional classroom. And still others note reverberations of educational  change at the institutional level in universities and colleges.  From this  collection emerges a call for a serious re-thinking of the paradigms governing literary education in the 21st century.  There is, to our knowledge, no comparable  intervention presently available; Experimental Literary Education ought to stimulate the imaginations of anyone deeply involved in literary educationfrom students, to administrators, to teachers.
