Reminder: Please submit abstracts by September 31 for "The Art of Reading: Theory, Practice, Pedagogy" panel at NeMLA 2014 (April 2014).

The Canon and Cultural Studies in the Composition Classroom

updated: 
Tuesday, September 10, 2013 - 12:18pm
NeMLA, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Since the "culture wars" of the 1980s and 90s, the significance of canonical authors towards a general education has been argued by both the left and right. As the debris from those arguments has settled it's clear that the canon has remained central to humanistic education, but in what way? While conservatives may have feared the dissolution of the traditional canon and liberals pushed the need for greater inclusiveness, it's obvious that détente in the culture wars has resulted in perhaps a different educational status quo entirely.
