Academic Paper


Title: Between the lines: When culture, language and poetry meet in the classroom
Author: Charlotte Melin
Institution: University of Minnesota at Twin Cities
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics
Abstract: Teaching poetry in second language (L2) classrooms raises theoretical and practical questions about how best to treat literature when target language and culture is also being negotiated. Current pedagogy derives from disparate sources, including the experientially-driven practices of individual teachers, the quantitative and qualitative research methodologies of Second Language Acquisition, and the aesthetic, historical, and philosophical traditions of literature and cultural studies. This paper surveys the knowledge base that shapes literature pedagogy, examines the conceptual implications of two common approaches (close reading and genre-based treatments), and argues for new teaching objectives.
