A Road Course in Early American Literature: Travel and Teaching from Atzlán to Amherst explores a two-part question: what does travel teach us about literature, and how can reading guide us to a deeper understanding of place and identity? Thomas Hallock charts a teacher’s journey to answering these questions, framing personal experiences around the continued need for a survey course covering early American literature up to the mid-nineteenth century.
Thomas Hallock is the author and editor of four previous books, and has taught English at the St. Petersburg campus of the University of South Florida since 2006. A Road Course in Early American Literature reflects upon that journey. Hallock will be introduced and interviewed by his colleague and spouse, Julie Armstrong.
