Bringing the global eighteenth century to WSU
In Fall 2021, Dr. Lisa Maruca (Associate Professor) received an award for Innovative Course Design from the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ASECS) for a course named “Mediating the Global Eighteenth-Century” (ENG 5200). By innovatively combining the history of race and the history of the book, Professor Maruca’s class allowed students to explore the intersection of media and communication technologies, social change, and discourses about race.
