The Golden Echo

Exploring a Hermeneutic of Hope

Welcome to Christopher Adamson’s Blog

I am a Victorianist focusing on medievalism and the connections between liturgy and literature. In my current project, “‘A Sacramental Moment’: Victorian Liturgical Medievalism,” I propose that understanding the use of liturgical forms in Victorian texts gives us a more nuanced view of the secularization narrative and can even shed light on the way we currently receive the Victorian past or wield medieval discourses.

As Digital Scholarship Pedagogy Lead at the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship, I specialize in facilitating faculty and students in integrating digital pedagogy and multimodal projects such as collaborative, student-driven blogging and digital storytelling in the classroom.

Here you will find my teaching materials and my thoughts on education and literature. Like “The Golden Echo,” by Gerard Manley Hopkins, my blog explores a hermeneutic of hope, a way of reading that affirms that poetry matters, the humanities matter, and you matter.
