This is no issue for two of my classes, which don't really have reading lists -- the Fiction Workshop and the Comp Class. In those classes, I rely on internet sources, mainly.
But this Fall I am also teaching Diverse Cultures: Working Class Lit, for the second time; and, for the first time, Popular Culture: Dystopian/Utopian Literature.
I'm using some of the same texts in Working Class Lit that I used the last time I taught, but I'm ditching the books that didn't work well and adding in new ones. Here's the reading list as I've got it so far:
American Working Class Literature
Coming of Age in Mississippi
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
The Road to Wigan Pier
For Utopian/ Dystopian Lit, I have this so far:
The Just City
The Female Man
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
Ursula Le Guin
Richard AdamsComments or suggestions are appreciated!
