Eric Lorentzen Presents at Conference

Eric Lorentzen, associate professor of English, presented a scholarly paper at a special session of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association Annual Convention in Raleigh/Durham, N.C., on Nov. 11.  In the paper, entitled “Interdisciplinary Pedagogy in Literature: Dickens and Cultural Studies,” Lorentzen argued for the efficacy and exigency of adopting a cultural studies/critical pedagogy in the university literature classroom, and delineated the benefits of this methodological praxis through his treatment of Charles Dickens.  He also served as secretary for a second panel on inter-disciplinarity in the humanities entitled “On the Human.”
