BiblioFiles #72: Genre, the Moral Imagination, and Literary Education


In this episode of BiblioFiles, the CenterForLit team takes stock of the current conversation surrounding the moral imagination and the literary experience. We consider the history of the conversation, how it got to where it is today, and where it might need to go from here. Meanwhile, Adam has finished yet another 1000-page tome of Dickens, which throws the problem of genre into the discussion.
