        Subject: ELN 47.1 "Experimental Literary Education" Spring/Summer 2009

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 education—from students, to administrators, to teachers.
