Putting research at the conceptual center of the literature classroom renews literature students’ place in the university. Students develop independent projects that make original contributions to scholarship, reinvigorate literary study, and make them competitive candidates for research fellowships. The leaders of this workshop will share their experience working on an experimental course that both redrew the relationship between the classroom and the library and offered students a new approach to research and literary study. They will discuss how the collaboration led to innovations in literary pedagogy and facilitated undergraduates’ use of contemporary digital research methods. Drawing on this experience, they will invite participants to imagine other models and offer approaches that are adaptable to various institutional and pedagogical circumstances.
