Series I. Course Materials, Bulk, 1983-1995 1966-1997

Scope and Content Notes:

Sutherland’s teaching career spanned three decades from 1966-1996. The older papers in this series include course materials from early in her career when she conducted classes on traditional subjects such as composition, literary analysis, and comedy. The scope of the courses represented in this collection broadens with material from the mid-1980s through the 1990s, which comprises the bulk of the collection. There is a substantial amount of material for several courses taught by Sutherland during this time period including: "Fantasy and Romance," "Fantasy Writers," "Introduction to Critical Reading," "Introduction to Shakespeare," "Literature, Tradition and the New," "Myth and Folktale," and "Science Fiction." The subject matter of these courses may indicate a broadening of Sutherland's research interests as well as an increasing willingness in collegiate English departments to include popular literature in academic literature studies. The materials for three of these courses ("Introduction to Critical Reading," "Literature, Tradition, and the New," and "Myth and Folktale") each span eight to nine years of Sutherland's career, which would allow for an examination of how the courses changed over time.

The materials in this series are arranged alphabetically by course title.
