Professor Karen Winstead's textbook for English 2201 appears highly unusual to those familiar with typical texts surrounding British Literature to 1800. The chosen texts, authored by diverse writers from a time period that valued predominantly white voices, resulted in an inclusive, guided resource for her students. By devoting the ALX grant funding entirely towards student salaries, Professor Winstead utilized the unique insight of both her undergraduate and graduate students throughout the entirety of the editing process. The result was a free, guided textbook with only the most relevant and engaging annotations and study materials.
