Celebrating Teaching

Students from Sean Franzel's class doing research in Special CollectionsToday and yesterday, participants from across campus gathered for the annual Celebration of Teaching in recognition of faculty innovation and achievements.  We’re celebrating another record-breaking year for classes and groups in Special Collections, and we count ourselves lucky to work with such dedicated and creative instructors.  Here’s just a sampling of the classes we taught this past year:

  • History of Modern Engineering
  • Jane Austen and Her Contemporaries
  • Theatre Scholarship
  • Italian Civilization
  • Letterpress and Book Arts
  • Historiography of Medieval and Early Modern Convents
  • The Inhuman Subject (English honors seminar)
  • Information and Student Success
  • History of Typography
  • Introduction to Visual Culture
  • Introduction to German Literature
  • History of Western Dress
  • Beginning Latin
  • Color Theory
  • Monstrous Births: Tales of Creation in 19th Century Literature
