Abstract

The study of english literature has thrived in the classrooms of all kinds of higher education institutions throughout the twentieth century-at university extension programs for working-class students, historically black colleges, main and branch campuses of state universities, small liberal arts colleges, and community colleges. En glish literature has been core to the curriculum at colonial and postcolonial universities across the globe, and has been taught alongside Native languages and literatures at tribal colleges and universities. hough the vast majority of the study of En glish literature takes place in classrooms at institutions like these, they have largely been excluded from histories of literary study.
