"In Quest of Narrative": A Teacher's Furore and Textual Returns
Yoder, Amarou
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v23 n3 p269-279 2016
This paper explores a teacher's furore--my own--by asking how such furores might be considered "in quest of narrative." If so, which one? The answer, I suggest, lies in revisiting the source texts for such a furore, allowing the texts to illuminate the curricula and teaching, rather than the reverse. In so doing, the ethical claim of the texts in which such a furore originates might be recovered, in order to clarify one's implication in webs of violence. Interspersed with an exploration of Katabatic narratives and curricula--the vehicle for my furore to teach about violence--are three narrative vignettes that emerged from revisiting the texts that inspired my teaching.
