Subject:      Online Survey: Teaching Thomas Nashe 

A colleague (Stephen Guy-Bray) and I are launching an online survey on "Teaching 
Thomas Nashe," and I have prepared an invitational announcement that can be 
found below:
Teaching Thomas Nashe: Invitation to Participate in a Survey
Critical interest in Thomas Nashe (the Elizabethan writer best known for his 
pamphleteering and The Unfortunate Traveller) has been on the rise, as seen in 
the published monographs, biographies, articles, book chapters, notes, and 
dissertations that focus on his writings. In the last decade alone, publications 
on Nashe appearing in the MLA Bibliography account for about a fifth of the 
entire list. Scholars have taken Nashe's works in important new directions, from 
authorship, the print market, literary influences and relations, to the study of 
prose, narrative, satire, romance, pornography, and religious and other 
controversies, to the writing of the city, the nation, the ocean, and of 
poverty, disease, and violence, to applications of media, textual, and actor-
network theories, and so on.   
These recent developments prompt us to ask whether there has been a similar 
surge of interest in teaching the works of Thomas Nashe. In setting up this 
survey, we are interested not only in individual perspectives but also in 
gaining a broader view of how teachers situate Nashe's works both within the 
field of early modern English literature and within their institutions' 
undergraduate and graduate curricula. In other words, we are interested in how 
teachers position Nashe's literary performance in the cultivation of students' 
intellectual curiosity and capacity for knowledge-making.
To this end, we invite you to participate in a brief online survey on "Teaching 
Thomas Nashe" that should take about 15-20 minutes to complete. We hope to 
publish our findings in an essay to be included in an anthology in progress of 
Nashe criticism. To access the survey simply click on the link below.
