Purdue OWL: Academic Cover Letters - Welcome to the Purdue
COVER LETTERS FOR ACADEMIC JOB APPLICATIONS
Special thanks to Professor Saint-Amour of Pomona College for his permission to publish his cover letter on the CGU Writing Center webpage. Stanford Humanities Center, Mariposa House Stanford University Stanford, California. I favor classroom dynamics that permit dialogue and foster a degree of student input as to curricula and grading criteria. And I like students to think about the class as a community. Profligate literary debtorship also operates, I argue, as a counter-tradition to the copyright laws solidifying during the period. And for two of the principle figures in this counter-tradition-the Irishmen Oscar Wilde and James Joyce-deficit poetics works as a colonial and post-colonial retort to the British tradition of private annexation embodied. In a subsequent project, I plan to research Victorian ideas of order-in both artistic genres and ethnographic taxonomies like Mayhew's London Labour and the London Poor-and how they inform a little-theorized aspect of certain modernist texts: the inventory.
I believe I can help students see not only the ruptures, but the continuities between nineteenth- and twentieth-century literatures and cultures. My teaching philosophy reflects my interests in collaborative authorship. Instead of the "full frontal teaching" method of large lectures of autocratic seminars, I prefer student-centered teaching that encourages learning.

This shift from the social scene of production to the individual scene of consumption, I claim, sponsors a concurrent aesthetic shift away from the productivist literary value of originality, with its attendant notions of inspiration, spontaneity, individual genius.
