Early December

One literature course for English teachers, Language Learning in Theory and Practice, has just ended and I finished grading it two days ago. It has been a really fun course with some very good students and I wish them all the best in their future work as teachers. Currently, I'm teaching three more literature courses, two that will finish in January and a third in April, and there are some really good people on these courses too. Teaching is definitely fun and I've been very lucky in this regard.

The planning for next term is also under way and I plan to teach three — hopefully four — more courses of the same type at Karlstad University this upcoming Spring.

Today, I'm preparing for next week's seminars. The first one will focus on Helen Oyeyemi's The Icarus Girl and the movie The Lion King. At the second seminar we will discuss The Great Gatsby, and at the third the focus will be on Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal" and Horace Walpole's The Castle of Otranto. Quite a leap between them.
