Lorentzen Presents Talk at NMLA

Eric Lorentzen, associate professor of English, presented a talk at this year’s Northeastern Modern Language Association, held in Hartford, Conn., March 17-20, titled “Is Teaching Sherlock Holmes as an Undergraduate Literature Course Too ‘Elementary?'”  In this talk, he was able to share, with Victorian and Modernist colleagues from across the country, the pedagogical philosophies and praxes that he has employed in his Sherlock Holmes course for UMW in the department of English, Linguistics, and Communication, as well as an argument about the necessary cultural studies approach that this topic requires.
