Abstract

The project sought to implement a different approach to the teaching of ENG 1110 Introduction to the Study of Literature (a required English Major course in Semester 1). Customary approaches to the course have employed period studies, concentrating on texts of a particular period. Instead of focusing on period, the alternative approach focused on literary type (i.e. genre or topic). In drawing on this alternative approach, I hoped to provide a more useful framework for the study of literature at the beginning of the 21st century, taking into greater account, for example, the influence of electronic and non-print forms of literature.
