I’m happy to note that my love of Hugo’s novel and teaching have produced an article now in print for others who may seek to combine reflection on revolution, youth, violence, democracy, and all the while keeping hope alive about that thing we call democracy… “Teaching Les Misérables and the French Revolution, or How to Keep the ‘Unfamiliar Light’ Aflame,” in Approaches to Teaching Hugo’s ‘Les Misérables’, ed. Michal Ginsburg and Bradley Stephens. NY: Modern Language Association, 2018. 129-135.
(The MLA asks that we do not post our published work online, but I’ll be happy to send you a copy of the ms., upon request.)
Thank you, Bradley Stephens and Michal Ginsburg, for bringing this beautiful book into print!

Hi! I will send it to you right away–we must keep our spirits up in times like this…
Thanks for your interest.
I am hopeful that you will see this years after your last reply: I would love a pdf of the book if still available!
I’ll be happy to send the pdf of my article, if you’d let me know your email address. Thanks!
