UT AMS PhD Dr. Adam Golub Publishes 'Monsters in the Classroom'

Congratulations to UT AMS PhD Dr. Adam Golub ('04) on the publication of his new edited collection, Monsters In The Classroom: Essays on Teaching What Scares Us, completed with Dr. Heather Richardson Hayton. According to the publisher's description:

"Exploring the pedagogical power of the monstrous, this collection of new essays describes innovative teaching strategies that use our cultural fascination with monsters to enhance learning in high school and college courses. The contributors discuss the implications of inviting fearsome creatures into the classroom, showing how they work to create compelling narratives and provide students a framework for analyzing history, culture, and everyday life. Essays explore ways of using the monstrous to teach literature, film, philosophy, theater, art history, religion, foreign language, and other subjects. Some sample syllabi, assignments, and class materials are provided."


Please join us in congratulating Dr. Golub!
