A very productive four hours or so in the library this morning before some midday errands on the way home and the a couple of additional hours uploading readings for a new course on Modern Scandinavian and Nordic Authors, which will run for the first time this winter and spring. We begin with Ibsen, Strindberg, and Hamsun, and end with a couple of Icelandic and Greenlandic authors from the second decade of the 21st century. So, canonical 'dead white guys' all the way to indigenous LGBTQ+ authors in 150 years of literary history. It's gonna be a wild ride.
Thank goodness there are some teachers who realize that "dead white guys" had a lot to say that is still relevant and will continue to be so.ReplyDelete
