Teaching Film
Lucy Fischer and patrice petro, eds.
“An invaluable resource not only for those new to teaching film but for those of us who have been working in the discipline for a long time and have grappled with many of the same issues addressed here.” —Pamela Robertson Wojcik University of Notre Dame

Film studies has been a part of higher education curricula in the United States almost since the development of the medium. Although the study of film is dispersed across a range of academic departments, programs, and scholarly organizations, film studies has come to be recognized as a field in its own right. In an era when teaching and scholarship are increasingly interdisciplinary, film studies continues to expand and thrive, attracting new scholars and fresh ideas, direction, and research. Given the dynamism of the field, experienced and beginning instructors alike need resources for bringing the study of film into the classroom. This volume will help instructors conceptualize contemporary film studies in pedagogical terms. The first part of the volume features essays on theory and on representation, including gender, race, and sexuality. Contributors then examine the geographies of cinema and offer practical suggestions for structuring courses on national, regional, and transnational film. Several essays focus on interdisciplinary approaches, while others describe courses designed around genre (film noir, the musical), mode (animation, documentary, avant-garde film), or the formal elements of film, such as sound, music, and mise-en-scène. The volume closes with a section on film and media in the digital age, in which contributors discuss the opportunities and challenges presented by access to resources, media convergence, and technological developments in the field.

Teaching Anglophone Caribbean Literature
Supriya M. nair, ed.
“This is an absolutely welcome, urgently needed, and very substantial volume. It will undoubtedly strengthen the teaching of Caribbean literature.” —Shalini Puri University of Pittsburgh

August 2012 Options for teaching 34 iSSn 1079-2562 c. 472 pp. • 6 x 9 Cloth iSBn: 978-1-60329-106-4 $40.00 short paper iSBn: 978-1-60329-107-1 $25.00 trade Contributors: nicole n.

Hawley, Brinda Mehta, paula Morgan, Denise deCaires narain, Jennifer nesbitt, Sandra pouchet paquet, Louis J. parascandola, Mimi pipino, elaine Savory, April Shemak, Faith Smith, Karina Smith, elizabeth Way

This volume recognizes that the most challenging aspect of introducing students to anglophone Caribbean literature— the sheer variety of intellectual and artistic traditions in Western and non-Western cultures that relate to it—also offers the greatest opportunities to teachers. Courses on anglophone literature in the Caribbean can consider the region’s specific histories and contexts even as they explore common issues: the legacies of slavery, colonialism, and colonial education; nationalism; exile and migration; identity and hybridity; class and racial conflict; gender and sexuality; religion and ritual. This volume considers how the availability of materials shapes syllabuses and recommends print, digital, and visual resources for teaching. The essays examine a host of topics, including the following:

• •

• • • • •

the development of multiethnic populations in the Caribbean and the role of various creole languages in the literature oral art forms, such as dub poetry and reggae music the influence of anglophone literature in the Caribbean on literary movements outside it, such as the Harlem Renaissance and black British writing Carnival religious rituals and beliefs specific genres such as slave narratives and autobiography film and drama the economics of rum

Many essays list resources for further reading, and the volume concludes with a section of additional teaching resources.

Approaches to Teaching the Works of Ngu ˜ wa Thiong’o ˜gı
Oliver Lovesey, ed.
“Lovesey’s collection of essays is exemplary. It covers the full range of Ngugı’s output both as ˜ ˜ a creative writer and as a critic, and it focuses on texts that are widely used in classrooms throughout the world.” —Bernth Lindfors University of Texas, Austin

Ngugı wa Thiong’o is one of the most important and ˜ ˜ celebrated authors of postindependence Africa as well as a groundbreaking postcolonial theorist. His work, written first in English, then in Gı kuyu, engages with the ˜ ˜ ˜ transformations of his native Kenya after what is often termed the Mau Mau rebellion. It also gives voice to the struggles of all Africans against economic injustice and political oppression. His writing and activism continue despite imprisonment, the threat of assassination, and exile. Part 1 of this volume, “Materials,” provides resources and background for the teaching of Ngugı ’s novels, plays, ˜ ˜ memoirs, and criticism. The essays of part 2, “Approaches,” consider the influence of Frantz Fanon, Karl Marx, and Joseph Conrad on Ngugı ; the role of women in and ˜ ˜ influence of feminism on his fiction; his interpretation and political use of African history; his experimentation with orality and allegory in narrative; and the different challenges of teaching Ngugı in classrooms in the United States, ˜ ˜ Europe, and Africa.

Approaches to Teaching The Story of the Stone (Dream of the Red Chamber)
Andrew Schonebaum and tina Lu, eds.

January 2013 Approaches to teaching World Literature 120 iSSn 1059-1133 c. 592 pp. • 6 x 9 Cloth iSBn: 978-1-60329-110-1 $37 short .50 paper iSBn: 978-1-60329-111-8 $19.75 trade Contributors: Maram epstein, Mary ellen Friends, Charlotte Furth, Martin Huang, Ling Hon Lam, Dore J.

Sommer, Xiaojue Wang, i-Hsien Wu, Xueping Zhong

The Story of the Stone (or Dream of the Red Chamber), a Chinese novel by Cao Xueqin and continued by Gao E, tells of an amazing garden, of a young man’s choice between two beautiful women, of his journey toward enlightenment, and of the moral and financial decline of a powerful family. Published in 1792, it depicts virtually every facet of life in eighteenth-century China—and has influenced culture in China ever since. Part 1 of this volume, “Materials,” provides information and resources that will help teachers and students begin and pursue their study of Stone. The essays that constitute part 2, “Approaches,” introduce major topics to be covered in the classroom: Chinese religion, medicine, history, traditions of poetry, material culture, sexual mores, servants; Stone in film and on television; and the formidable challenges of translation into English that were faced by David Hawkes and then by John Minford.

Approaches to Teaching Milton’s Paradise Lost second edition
peter C. Herman, ed.
“This is an exemplary anthology of essays, all of them anchored in pedagogical concerns.” —Joseph Wittreich Graduate Center, City University of New York

This second edition of Approaches to Teaching Milton’s Paradise Lost addresses Milton in the light of the digital age, new critical approaches to his poem, and his continued presence in contemporary culture. It aims to help instructors enliven the teaching of Paradise Lost and address the challenges presented to students by the poem—the early modern syntax and vocabulary, the political and theological contexts, and the abounding classical references. The first part of the volume, “Materials,” evaluates the many available editions of the poem, points to relevant reference works, recommends additional reading, and outlines useful audiovisual and online aids for teaching Milton’s epic poem. The essays in the second part, “Approaches,” are grouped by several themes: literary and historical contexts, characters, poetics, critical approaches, classrooms, and performance. The essays cover epic conventions and literary and biblical allusions, new approaches such as ecocriticism and masculinity studies, and reading Milton on the Web, among other topics.

Approaches to Teaching Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew
Margaret Dupuis and grace tiffany, eds.
“This collection is essential reading for beginning instructors and for seasoned veterans. The editors should be commended for making available such a useful and rich array of pedagogical strategies.” —Katherine Scheil University of Minnesota

Spring 2013 Approaches to teaching World Literature 123 iSSn 1059-1133 c. 280 pp. • 6 x 9 Cloth iSBn: 978-1-60329-118-7 $37 short .50 paper iSBn: 978-1-60329-119-4 $19.75 trade Contributors: M. g.

Lidh, Laury Magnus, robert Matz, Margaret Maurer, Michael McClintock, Joseph M. Ortiz, Meg F pearson, Joseph ricke, . edward L. rocklin, James W. Welsh

The impetus for this Approaches to Teaching volume on The Taming of the Shrew grew from the editors’ desire to discover why a play notorious for its controversial exploration of conflicts between men and women and the challenges of marriage is enduringly popular in the classroom, in the performing arts, and in scholarship. The result is a volume that offers practical advice to teachers on editions and teaching resources in part 1, “Materials,” while illuminating how the play’s subtle and complex arguments regarding not just marriage but a host of other subjects—modes of early modern education, the uses of clever rhetoric, intergenerational and class politics, the power of theater— are being brought to life in college classrooms. The essays in part 2, “Approaches,” are written by English and theater instructors who have taught in a variety of academic settings and cover topics including early modern homilies and music, Hollywood versions of The Taming of the Shrew, and student performances.

Approaches to Teaching the Works of Robert Louis Stevenson
Caroline McCracken-Flesher, ed.
“For teachers of Stevenson from K–12 through graduate study . . . first-rate scholars provide a sophisticated overview of his wide-ranging literary output.” Joseph McLaughlin Ohio University

Although Robert Louis Stevenson was a late Victorian, his work—especially Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde—still circulates energetically and internationally among popular and academic audiences and among young and old. Admired by Henry James, Vladimir Nabokov, and Jorge Luis Borges, Stevenson’s fiction crosses the boundaries of genre and challenges narrow definitions of the modern and the postmodern. Part 1 of this volume, “Materials,” provides an introduction to the writer’s life, a survey of the criticism of his work, and a variety of resources for the instructor. In part 2, “Approaches,” thirty essays address such topics as Stevenson’s dialogue with James about literature; his verse for children; his Scottish heritage; his wanderlust; his work as gothic fiction, as science fiction, as detective fiction; his critique of imperialism in the South Seas; his usefulness in the creative writing classroom; and how he encourages expansive thinking across texts, times, places, and lives.
