Problem-based Variations in Teaching Stephen Dobyns\u27s \u27Kansas\u27 in China

By Tao Zou


In their article Problem-based Variations in Teaching Stephen Dobyns\u27s \u27Kansas\u27 in China Tao Zou and Hong Zeng discuss the multiple variations in their experience of teaching foreign literature in China, with the teaching of Stephen Dobyns\u27s short story Kansas as an example and the positive results of their approach. Variations in a broad sense occur with the differences in the choice of literary text, translation, interpretation, and canonization. All these variations can be used to reflect on and resolve major current issues in teaching foreign literature, and to stage cross-cultural communication and creativity through foreign literature pedagogy

Topics: variation theory, teaching foreign literature, Stephen Dobyns, “Kansas”, comparative literature, education, culture, and literature, Arts and Humanities, Comparative Literature, Education, Reading and Language
