That’s right, Steampunk World is going to be used as a textbook at the University of Wisconsin-Waukesha in Lisa Hager’s ENG 273: International Steampunk Literature & Culture. It sounds like it’s going to be a cool class:
Using Omeka, our class will create an online exhibit of objects from Hans’ Steampunk World. Each student will contribute three objects along with analysis of how these object exemplify the stories’ mash-ups of various cultures and steampunk.
That is just kinda awesome.
And for those of you teaching (or taking) creative writing courses, don’t forget Eighth Day Genesis: A Worldbuilding Codex to help you create a great fictional world!
