What Good Is World Literature?: World Literature Pedagogy and the Rhetoric of Moral Crisis

Karen R. Smith
Abstract: We should make the case that literary study has traditionally been, and continues to be, an effective gateway into the cross-cultural awareness that a truly global campus needs. At the same time, we should draw upon our own pedagogical history to ensure that our institutions of learning do not reinforce the neo-imperialism of cultural globalization. In fact, since World War II, calls for teaching world literature have been tied to shifting moral imperatives.

The Literature of Poverty, The Poverty of Literature Classes
John Marsh
Abstract: The author describes an undergraduate course he has taught on U.S. literature about poverty, but he also expresses doubt that such courses can help produce major social change.

Reflective Writing’s Synecdochic Imperative: Process Descriptions Redescribed
Julie Jung
Abstract: When students write descriptions of their writing process for portfolios, they represent their experience rather than simply convey it, and their teachers can usefully analyze these representations by drawing on Hayden White’s theory of tropes.

“Me Inwardly, Before I Dared”: Japanese Americans Writing-to-Gaman
Mira Shimabukuro
Abstract: Although Japanese Americans’ concept of gaman has been stereotypically associated with silent passivity, several practiced this principle as a form of resistance in personal writings about the U.S. government’s incarceration of them during World War II.
