Teaching American Literature at an East European University
Explicating the Rhetoric of Liberty
This book responds to literary and composition theorists who have called for reinventing English studies, uniting the study of literature and the study of writing in liberatory rhetoric. The book describes the partnership between the EAS Department at Shkoder, Albania, and the University of Graz, the Austrian institution that has supported its Albanian partner for over a decade; the University of Graz has provided a powerful model for rhetoricizing English studies, a concept explored in the book and which relates this microcosm to departments of English studies.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"This book poses and answers a question that is key to the survival and enhancement of literary studies at this point in time, when many English departments face devaluation, even extinction, as emphasis on rhetorical and cultural studies grows stronger..." - Professor Michael Kleine, University of Arkansas"
