Teaching Space, Place, and Literature

Teaching Space, Place, and Literature aims to survey a broad expanse of literary critical, theoretical and historical territories, as it presents both an introduction to teaching spatial literary studies and an essential guide to scholarly research being conducted in this burgeoning field. The transformational effects of postcolonialism, globalization, and the rise of ever more advanced information technologies helped to push space and spatiality into the foreground, as traditional spatial or geographic limits are erased or redrawn, leading to new ways of seeing space and place in relation to literary studies. Given these developments, the essays in Teaching Space, Place, and Literature represent a timely assertion of the significance of spatiality in literary studies, particularly with respect to the methods, approaches, and theories of teaching literature. This book is divided into three sections, which cover the pragmatic approaches for introducing spatiality studies and literature in the classroom, examinations of particular places or types of space in literature, and broader theoretical, generic, or cultural topics relating to spatial literary studies. Addressing key issues, teaching strategies, urban spaces, race, gender, periods, and genres, this comprehensive volume offers a variety of approaches to teaching space and place in the humanities classroom.
