LTC: Visualizing the Victorian Novel

Carleton College Learning and Teaching Center, PEPS, Carleton College Learning and Teaching Center


Susan Jaret McKinstry, Helen F. Lewis Professor of English

How can we teach old books to new students? How can visual technologies help students understand historical objects? How can one professor's research on the relation between word and image in the Victorian period teach students visual as well as literary analysis? Susan Jaret McKinstry will consider the delights and dangers of one assignment--a visual "serial project"--from her recently retooled class on the Victorian novel. Examples of extraordinary student work will help frame a discussion of the growing role of the visual in our teaching and research.
