Gerald Graff

Gerald Graff is coeditor with James Phelan of two Bedford Case Studies in Critical Controversy, Adventure of Huckleberry Finn and The Tempest, both in second editions.  He is one of the most eminent figures in literary studies and education today through his influential pedagogy of "teaching the conflicts," which he developed as a professor of English at Northwestern University and the University of Chicago, and as a professor of English and Education in his current position at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  His other widely read books include Professing Literarture (1987), Beyond the Culture Wars (1992), Clueless in Academe (2003), and (with Cathy Birkenstein) the textbook They Say/I Say.  He served as President of the Modern Language Association of America in 2008.
