In 2016, Dornsife College at the University of Southern California invited Andrew to develop BOOKPACKERS as a cross-humanities concept for undergraduate education.
In 2017, he was was brought ‘on faculty’ in the Department of English, and in 2018 he was appointed an adjunct Professor of the Practice.
BOOKPACKERS now exists on the USC Schedule of Classes in two forms - as a 15-week ‘on campus’ class, and a 25-day ‘on the road’ experience in New Orleans and Southern Louisiana. Both are 4-unit classes accredited for General Education. Click on the links to find out more.
Meanwhile, Andrew is developing a series of new classes which aim to launch over the next few semesters: a residential class set in New York, a road trip following the journey of the Joad Family in ‘The Grapes of Wrath’, and an immersive class set in Los Angeles.
