CLC: Syllabus Archive

The Center For Literary Computing reminds you of the Knowledgebase syllabus archive:

The Knowledgebase project has created a searchable syllabus archive
(, which is an ongoing compilation of syllabuses from our English department. The archive contains English Department syllabuses from 1999 to the present. This is a valuable resource for everyone - teachers, students, and researchers:

* Teachers preparing a course can compare syllabi from previous versions of a course, find a selection of anthologies that have been used in the past, and get ideas for companion-readings to accompany a text that they plan to include in their own course.

* Students can search for particular professors and instructors to get a better idea of the kinds of courses, course requirements, and so on they might expect. Or, they can look through a variety of syllabi for a course they are planning to take.

* Scholars can research the varying ways that texts are taught and the background materials associated with them across the department's offerings, from introductory through more specialized and graduate courses.

In an effort to keep the syllabus archive alive and well, we hope that you'll be willing to contribute your own syllabus to the project. If you are willing to participate, please send your syllabus in the form of a .doc or .pdf file to Lindsey Joyce at
