I teach a range of courses at Stony Brook. At the lower-division level, I regularly offer EGL 204 (Literary Analysis and Argumentation), which I feel is the most important course of the major or minor. I also periodically teach a survey of twentieth-century British literature (EGL 224) that takes students from Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness to short fiction by Zadie Smith. At the upper-division level, I offer a range of courses: single-author classes on James Joyce or Virginia Woolf; courses on the literature and culture of WWI; and topics on modernism and the middlebrow or modernism and sexuality. My M.A. and doctoral courses range from "Modernism and Cultural Studies" to "Modern Things."
