Emily Friedman and I just published a co-edited special issue of Romantic Circles Pedagogy Commons on “Teaching Jane Austen." The online, open-access issue includes 11 essays by leading Austen scholars, on subjects such as teaching Austen with digital resources and manuscripts (Michelle Levy), teaching her fiction in a prison setting (Michael Verderame), and teaching Austen with the Romantic poets (Beth Lau). The issue also includes an annotated bibliography on the scholarship of teaching Austen (by me and Emily Zarka), as well as a generous selection of teaching materials, including syllabi, discussion questions, assignments, and handouts. I'm just thrilled with how it turned out and grateful to all of the people at RC who made this possible, especially Prof. Kate Singer, who first suggested it, after our sessions on the subject at the Modern Language Association Convention in 2013.
