Since Kelly and others were so generous with their comments, here’s a preview to the course-blog I’ll be running for my ENGL 7390 Intro to Doctoral class. I’ve got 23 students registered, with people from Creative Writing and Literature, Literary Studies, and Rhet/Comp PhD programs or concentrations.
Weirdly enough, as it stands, there are practically no “literary” readings in this, but quite a bit of institutional history, and lots of opportunities for students to pursue their specialties in their own research and writing. If anything interesting drops out of discussion, I’ll report back.
Thanks for your suggestions and advice. The blog will be closed down to outside traffic by Monday.
