Covering a range of texts and strategies-from a genre-based approach to early novels, to an argument for student-teacher collaboration engaging Shen Fus Six Records of a Floating Life-the collection aims to participate in larger conversations about the best practices of teaching eighteenth-century texts in the undergraduate classroom. With an eye toward energizing further pedagogical dialogue about this important period, the authors share a wealth of experience and practical advice about the joys and pitfalls of teaching Western and non-Western texts to students relatively unfamiliar with early-modern literature.
