Happy Memorial Day, colleagues in the Western Literature Association,
On behalf of the WLA Executive Council, we are pleased to unveil the online WLA Syllabus Exchange:
The syllabus exchange is linked to the WLA website as one of the drop-down menu items from “The Association (WLA).”
Many thanks to those who contributed syllabi to this project. This valuable teaching resource couldn’t have happened without you. The site is a gold mine of information, with well over 100 syllabi and a fascinating range of courses. Some syllabi include extensive bibliographies. So please take a few minutes to explore the site and investigate some of the syllabus links.
We welcome your suggestions for improvement. Is there a course you’d like to see that’s not there? Do you know of someone with a good syllabus that we might request? Is there some way that the site could be more user friendly or more useful? We plan to update the syllabus exchange about every six months, so please continue to submit syllabi and spread the word.
Finally, we thought it fitting to officially launch the WLA Syllabus Exchange on Memorial Day to honor and remember Sue Rosowski, long-time WLA member and beloved teacher-mentor extraordinaire.
