Christina A. Valeo is professor of English at Eastern Washington University, where she has taught courses in English literature, children’s literature, dystopian fiction, general education, and English education since 2003. Her publications include material on Romantic writers, romance writers, Harry Potter, and children’s literature. Her favorite pedagogical move is something she learned from a mentor long ago: “calling down the cosmos” in the classroom. Specifically, how does the literature we read help to reveal the wonders of our everyday lives? And, moreover, how can encountering “every day” literature – like romance novels, women’s literature, Harry Potter, a blockbuster movie, a local production of a play – lead us on with greater expertise into the wonderful world of literature?
