From Britain to A2

Lacy Hartley is an associate
professor of English. She has
taught in from Great Britain.
What do you teach?
Officially, 19th century Brit-
ish literature. I teach courses
that are more about theories of
literature, theories of art and of
language. ButtI also teach a Vic-
torian novel class - a graduate
course about Charles Darwin,
George Eliot and scientific ideas.
What is your favorite thing
to teach?
Theory. The course I'm
teaching is called "Is Literature
Art?" It starts with Plato and

Aristotle and ends with cur-
rent ideas about literature and
whether it is spectacle in the
world, whether it is producing
truth, if it's singular or plural
and whether it should serve any
social, political, moral purpose
or whether it just is a form that
we admire and that moves us in
such ways. It's a great class; it's
What is the best thing you
have learned while working
at the University?
Every time you go into a
classroom, at whatever level,
you learn something from the
students. Students here are
wonderfully willing to give

forth their opinions and toss up
ideas, and so the discussions are
always exciting and sometimes
unpredictable, but also fun. It
doesn't feel like work. That cer-
tainly wasn't always the case
teaching in Britain. There's a
very big distinction and a dif-
ferent level of formality and
stance. There it's definitely
more formal and it's a very dif-
ferent structure for teaching.
So, do you enjoy it more
here than you do in Britain?
I do. And that you can quote
