Canons and contexts by Paul Lauter( )

21 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays places issues central to literary study, particularly the question of the canon, in the context of institutional practices in American colleges universities. Lauter addresses such crucial concerns as what students should read and study, how standards of "quality" are defined and changed, the limits of theoretical discourse, and the ways race, gender, and class shape not only teaching, curricula, and research priorities, but collegiate personnel actions as well. The book examines critically the variety of recent proposals for "reforming" higher education, and it calls into question many practices--like employing large numbers of part-timers--now popular with college managers. Offering concrete examples of a "comparative" method of teaching literary texts, and specific instances for "integrating" curricula, Canons and Contexts proposes realistic ideas for creating varied, spirited and democratic classrooms and colleges"--Back cover

A companion to American literature and culture by Paul Lauter( )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This expansive Companion to American Literature provides a set of fresh perspectives, some related, some dissonant, on the wealth of texts produced in and around what is now the United States. Written by experts in the field, the Companion embraces the many different voices that constitute American literature, from slave narratives and oral tales to regional writing and literature of the environment. It demonstrates that American literature was multicultural before Europeans arrived on the continent, and even more so thereafter." "The three sections of the book offer three distinctive paradigms for thinking about American literature. The first section draws attention to the ways in which American literature has been constructed and studied at differing moments and by different groups of people. The second looks at the literary production of individual authors and at groups of writers who interacted with one another. The final section examines the interactions between contemporary forms of creative expression and the theories that inform and are, in turn, shaped by such writing."--Jacket

The impact of women's studies on the campus and the disciplines by Florence Howe( Book )

9 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The impact that the over 300 women's studies programs have had on the institutions that house them and on academic professional associations is studied in this monograph. It is based on a review of limited literature evaluating the impact of women's studies, as well as on materials from 119 women's studies programs, and some 57 professional societies, women's caucuses, and commissions. The major impact of women's studies is the establishment of a curricular unit, called a women's studies program, on a campus. The early emphasis on normative evaluation of these studies, the shift to formative evaluation, and the current context of evaluation are discussed. The formation and growth of professional women's groups and activities of groups surveyed are considered. Funding for the establishment of a longitudinal data base on women's studies is suggested. Recommendations on key issues in policy and research concern curriculum, faculty, institutionalization, and graduate study. A literature review, bibliography, and information on the University of Minnesota's Women's Studies Self Survey Report are included. (Sw)

Finding community ; a guide to community research and action by Ron Jones( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For those concerned with contemporary social problems, whether as students, members of community groups, or individual citizens, this book attempts not only to describe the issues, but also to offer some starting points for local research and action. As an educational tool, it is based on the belief that a good way to learn about a community is to get involved with it. It can be used in some form at every educational level. Each of the eleven chapters has four parts: 1) Indictment to briefly describe the problem; 2) Readings to serve as evidence drawn from different sources; 3) Community Research and Action; and, 4) Alternatives to show efforts of people to create new institutions to answer the problems raised by the old. The core material lies in the research and action sections; the research questions can be used to decide whether the conditions described in the indictments and readings exist in your community. For example, one of the activities included in the chapter on food costs and quality consists of a "Food Market Survey". A chart is provided on which one can compare prices on individual items in low- and middle-income markets, and food co-ops. Some of the other issues covered are: selling practices and credit abuse, experiencing the welfare system, condition of American housing, the police, the draft, and the environment. (Author/JLB)
A history of American working-class literature( Book )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A History of American Working-Class Literature sheds light not only on the lived experience of class but the enormously varied creativity of working-class people throughout the history of what is now the United States. By charting a chronology of working-class experience, as the conditions of work have changed over time, this volume shows how the practice of organizing, economic competition, place, and time shape opportunity and desire. The subjects range from transportation narratives and slave songs to the literature of deindustrialization and globalization. Among the literary forms discussed are memoir, journalism, film, drama, poetry, speeches, fiction, and song. Essays focus on plantation, prison, factory, and farm, as well as on labor unions, workers' theaters, and innovative publishing ventures. Chapters spotlight the intersections of class with race, gender, and place. The variety, depth, and many provocations of this History are certain to enrich the study and teaching of American literature."--Jacket

The age of innocence : complete text with introduction, historical contexts, critical essays by Edith Wharton( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edith Wharton (1862-1937) wrote carefully structured fiction that probed the psychological and social elements guiding the behavior of her characters. At the heart of the story are three people whose entangled lives are deeply affected by the tyrannical and rigid requirements of high society. Newland Archer, a restrained young attorney, is engaged to the lovely May Welland but falls in love with May's beautiful and unconventional cousin, Countess Ellen Olenska. Despite his fear of a dull marriage to May, Archer goes through with the ceremony -- persuaded by his own sense of honor, family, and societal pressures. He continues to see Ellen after the marriage, but his dreams of living a passionate life ultimately cease."--Amazon.com
