Teaching

(taken from 1986 Curriculum Vitae): “I have taught in the ordinary and honours degree programs in English of all of the universities with which I have been associated, offering a range of topics from Early English poetry to the 20th century novel. Certain areas relating to my research interests have been taught with greater frequency than others. These include: The Johnson circle, the 18th century novel; the Scottish tradition in 19th century literature – Scott, Carlyle etc.; and Shakespeare. I have taught and supervised at the graduate level in the Universities of St. Andrew’s, Dundee and Calgary. Courses offered at the graduate level have included: Pope and Johnson, the Shakespearian scholarly tradition, and analytical and descriptive bibliography. I have supervised theses, at both the MA and PhD levels, dealing with 17th century, 18th Century and Scottish topics: e.g. Glanvil, Ars Moriendi prose, Earl of Buchan, The Scots Magazine, James Boswell and R.B.C. Grahame. I was closely associated with the development of the PhD Program in English at the University of Calgary, both as secretary and Chairman of the department Graduate Committee. I was once of the original three scholars permitted to supervise in this program. I have supervised or examined, to date, over 30 graduate students.”
