Encuentros esteticos deweyanos con la cultura popular anglofona en la ensenanza de ingles como lengua extranjera (EILE). Working Paper (Deweyan Aesthetic Encounters with Anglophone Popular Culture in the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language. Working Paper).
Zoreda, Margaret Lee
This paper discusses how the introduction of Anglophone popular culture in the English-as-a-foreign-language class can serve to foster critical aesthetic experiences. It is argued that the popular culture of the hegemonic Anglophone countries is already part of students' lives and for that reason should be included in any critical Anglophone studies curriculum. Contemporary theories of popular culture, literary criticism, and foreign language pedagogy are reviewed and a dialogue is established between these perspectives and Deweyan philosophy. The study of popular culture offer students opportunities for critical reflection, while allowing them to exercise their imaginative, emotional, and creative faculties. These aesthetic encounters also have the power to improve cross-cultural understanding. (Contains 64 references.) (BD)
