Race Matters: Teaching "Ethnic" Texts in the Literary Classroom

updated: 
Saturday, October 1, 2011 - 9:52pm
CEA (Roundtable)

Seeking panelists for a Roundtable Panel at the 43rd Annual College English Association (CEA) Conference (March 29-31, 2012) to be held in Richmond, VA. In a recent article on teaching multiethnic literature published in MELUS, Tina Chen calls for "an ethics of knowledge, derived from the literature itself, that can help us teach our students to be ethically oriented towards the study of alterity." Such an ethics of knowledge, Chen proposes, would emphasize the responsibilities incumbent on authors, readers, and critics as they address cultural difference, and would help to counter the "humanistic impulse" that seeks to privilege similarity in the midst of alterity.
