Teaching Literary Responses to the Black Death During the COVID 19 Pandemic
O'Connell, Brendan
In this paper, I provide a case study about the experience of teaching literary responses to the Black Death online during the recent closure of universities in Ireland. I outline the rationale for teaching the module, discussing some of the obstacles and opportunities presented by the sudden switch to online teaching. I provide some practical details and include reflections on the experience of the class.
