Teaching Lost as Lit

University of Florida instructor Sarah Clarke Stuart teaches a literature course on Lost, the hit ABC show about the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 who crashed on a mysterious island. Her course includes such academic ares as physics, philosophy, religion, literature, mathematics, all based on content from the weekly program. “Ross Spencer, sophomore, said he thinks he’s learned more because the material is contemporary. ‘I think it’s more applicable than a regular literature class because you’re learning about what’s going on now,’ he said. ‘It definitely has academic merit.'”

“Regular literature”?
