Interest in transatlantic literary study has intensified along with an impetus toward global studies pioneered by Paul Giles, Susan Manning, Paul Gilroy, and others. The long nineteenth century offers a crucial timeframe for transatlantic study, given this era’s radically increasing literacy and mass-circulation print, as well as enhanced transportation and communication systems and the rise of professional authorship.
To provide one foundational resource for teaching in this dynamic field, Teaching Transatlanticism: Resources for Teaching Nineteenth-Century Anglo-American Print Culture (Edinburgh UP, 2015) outlines conceptual approaches to transatlanticism and offers practical resources ranging from individual assignment descriptions to full course designs. The collection of essays by leading scholars and experienced professors from Canada, the UK, and the US is complemented by this website, which makes available appendices material from the collection’s authors (sample assignments, syllabi, teaching ideas, bibliographies, and more). The Teaching Transatlanticism website also invites resource submissions and news about work in the field from other current and future teachers of transatlanticism.
Below is the Table of Contents for Teaching Transatlanticism. Hyperlinks associated with individual chapter titles will take you to relevant online appendices for that essay; those materials are available only online. Hyperlinks for each contributor’s name will take you to an author bio.
