This book provides original essays that suggest ways to engage students in the classroom with the cultural factors of American literature. Some of the essays focus on individual authors' works, others view American literature more broadly, and still others focus on the application of culturally based methods for reading. All suggest a closer look at how ethnicity, culture and pedagogy interact in the classroom to help students better understand the complexity of works written by African American, Native American, Asian American, Latino/a, and several other often overlooked American literatures.

With contributions from scholars and practitioners in the fields of education, literacy, literature, media, communication and cultural studies from all five continents, the present volume focuses on themes of pressing importance in today's globalized community. By giving voice to educators committed to excellence in teaching from primary school to university, the book introduces the reader to a plurality of approaches to, and applications of, up-to-date theories in the fields of cognition, language acquisition, intercultural communication and technology-based distance education, to name but a few. Though situated in a concrete educational context—be it a Chinese EFL-classroom in transition, an online MBA-course offered in post-Communist Romania, or a U.S. university utilizing community elders as a pedagogical tool—each paper was selected on the universal value of its findings, which professionals facing the challenges of 21st century pedagogy will find readily applicable in classrooms worldwide. Since teaching paradigms are strongly culture-bound and influenced by national policies as much as international politics, this book represents a maximum of diversity by including philosophical texts, hands-on research results and articles in the critical discourse tradition, which reflect a number of contentious issues, ranging from the pros and cons of dual-language classrooms to potentially racist literature curricula and the intersection of politics and pedagogy in a post-September 11 world.

Ritual Structures In Chicana Fiction

This book argues for the necessary and further examination of the sacred as it is ritualized within Chicana fiction. It suggests that religious, spiritual, linguistic and political symbolisms reveal rites that structure narrative performances of coping with and healing from trauma. Helane Androne examines these rites of spirit, service, and story as they occur in Ana Castillo’s So Far From God, Denise Chávez’s Face of An Angel, and Sandra Cisneros’ Caramelo. Beginning with the implications of Gloria Anzaldúa’s spiritual vision of Chicana identity alongside structural principles of ritual criticism, this study extends the discourse about the impact of the sacred in Chicana fiction. an>

These critical essays, written specifically for instructors in literature courses, focus on longer works of prose in each of the four major ethnic literatures of the United States: Native American, Mexican American, Asian American, and African American. Each essay is accompanied by bibliographies and pedagogical strategies for helping students appreciate texts from a variety of cultures and traditions. Instructors of broad survey courses will find this text invaluable as will those planning more specialized courses in the novel, short story, or autobiography. The authors included are ones whose works are often taught but about whom little critical comment is yet available. Teaching American Ethnic Literatures contributes to the scholarship on ethnic writing in the United States and to the effort to apply that scholarship to classroom teaching.

Growing Up Transnational Identity And Kinship In A Global Era

Stereotypes and cultural imperialism often provide a framework of fixed characteristics for postmodern life, yet fail to address the implications of questions such as, "Where are you from?" Growing Up Transnational challenges the assumptions behind this fixed framework to look at the interconnectivity, conflict, and contradictions within current discussions of identity and kinship. This collection offers a fresh, feminist perspective on family relations, identity politics, and cultural locations in a global era. Using an interdisciplinary approach from fields including gender studies, postcolonial theory, and literary theory, this volume questions the concept of hybridity and the tangible implications of assumed identities. The rich personal narratives of the authors explore hyphenated identities, hybridized families, and the challenges and rewards of lives on and beyond borders. The result is a new transnational sensibility that explores the redefinition of the self, the family, and the nation.
