Native American Literature Symposium, April 5-7, 2007

Roundtable on Teaching American Indian Poetry

This is one of two panels at the Native American Literature Symposium--the
premiere Native Literature gathering--sponsored by the ASAIL Committee on
Pedagogy and Teaching. This particular roundtable will feature individual
scholars giving mini-presentations on teaching Native American poems.
Presentations can range from topics of courses to the use of secondary
sources to innovative approaches. I am especially interested in proposals
that pair two poems by different poets and/or that offer an actual hands-on
"lesson" for use in the classroom.

Appalachia was, and remains, one place where Americans' thoughts go when the=
y have to re-think what it means to be American. Whether it is understood as=
 the First Frontier, the original Old West, or an Eden infested with the sna=
kes of race, class, and violence, Appalachia offers exceedingly fertile grou=
nd for popular and scholarly investigation.

Presentations covering a broad range of Appalachian culture

are welcome, as are thematic panels composed of three to

four presentations. Topics may include:

--Appalachian music

--Appalachian writers

--Appalachia in film

--Appalachia in television

--Gender in Appalachia

--"Fighting Back" in Appalachia
