Fiction, Literature and Media
Distributed for Amsterdam University Press
The book is divided into three sections: fictions and literary theory, fictions and (multi)media texts, and crossing borders: fictions, integration and language. Each chapter offers ways of integrating a diverse range of texts into mother tongue classes in larger, bolder strokes. Challenges - particularly to conventional understanding of the literary canon - emerge in elaborate, extensive, and inclusive considerations of broadly defined written, visual, and virtual texts and their place in mother tongue education classes. This book will challenge educators to review and reconstruct their literary practices in a broader textual environment.
