Canons and contexts by Paul Lauter( Book )

20 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 640 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

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

8 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 319 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)

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

21 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 214 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
