Literary Learning explores the nature of literary knowledge and offers guidance for effective teaching of literature at the college level. What do English majors need to learn? How can we help them develop the skills and knowledge they need? By identifying the habits of mind that literary scholars use in their own research and writing, Sherry Lee Linkon articulates the strategic knowledge that lies at the heart of the discipline, offering important insights and models for beginning and experienced teachers.
Sherry Lee Linkon is Professor of English and American Studies and Co-director of the Center for Working-Class Studies at Youngstown State University. Her books include Teaching Working Class; Steeltown USA: Work and Memory in Youngstown (with John Russo); and New Working-Class Studies (edited with John Russo).
