Brian Goldberg recognized by U for teaching
Associate Professor Brian Goldberg has been recognized with the University's highest honor for undergraduate teaching, the Horace T. Morse-University of Minnesota Alumni Association Award for Outstanding Contributions to Undergraduate Education. Congratulations!
A scholar of British 18th-century and romantic literature, Goldberg joined the English faculty in 2000. He has taught classes from large lectures ("Intro to Literature," "Survey of British Literature II") to small seminars ("Poetry and Poetic Form," "Poems About Cities," a senior seminar on John Keats). He previously won the Ruth R. Christie Distinguished Teaching Award and the Council of Graduate Students Outstanding Faculty Award, voted on by undergraduate and graduate students, respectively. As one alum commented on Instagram, "LEGEND!"
In addition, Goldberg served one term as Department of English Director of Undergraduate Studies and twice as interim DUS (including spring 2023). He has acted as advisor for numerous undergraduate honors theses.
Professor Goldberg is the author of The Lake Poets and Professional Identity (Cambridge University Press).
