Burton, Maxine – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
Victorian fiction can provide a valuable source of information about society by virtue of its topicality and realistic techniques, influenced by contemporary journalism. In particular, the novels of Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy throw light on literacy practices, including reading aloud. The higher the literacy levels of the novels' characters,…

Davies, Molly – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
I explore a series of incidents in my English classroom, which occurred while I was preparing my students for their high-stakes GCSE English Language exam ('Paper 2: Writers' viewpoints and perspectives'). I thereby attempt to confront some of my own failings and biases with regard to non-fiction and the teaching of persuasive writing in…

Duncan, Sam – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
Reading aloud receives a great deal of attention as something done with children and as a potential teaching tool, but less is known about the oral reading that we, as adults, may do for various purposes across our everyday lives. This article explores one element of a two-year project recording and analysing contemporary adult reading aloud…

Pang, Hanzhou – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
This study attempts to explore the issue of intercultural and transnational negotiation in written English communication. I am interested in the reciprocal development of written discourse across cultural boundaries. My analysis focuses on academic writers' sense of self and their individual ability to reach otherness when they share the roles of…

Price, Vincent – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
Critiquing two approaches that English teachers use to teach Black, or African-American, literature in the secondary classroom--one that centralises races and the other that ignores it--this article proposes a hybrid approach that combines both. This double-faced approach recognises the culturally specific themes that give the text and the Black…

Muñoz-Valdivieso, Sofía – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
The article reviews the evolution of Shakespeare studies over the last 50 years and proposes a narrative to trace its development since the commemoration of Shakespeare's birth in 1964 in three phases: first, the unfolding from the 1970s to the 1990s of what I have called the postmodern paradigm in Shakespeare studies, which I argue breaks with…

Miller, Karl – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2014
In this reflective piece, Karl Miller looks down the lens at an ancient world, once his own. He does so with the help of a memoir, "Rebecca's Vest," which he published much later, in the mid-1990s: a mid-term report in which he describes how he became a reader and about what he read. With the end of the term approaching, he offers a…

Rampton, David – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2014
The idea that literature has inspirational qualities and is produced by Great Writers has repeatedly come under attack as literary studies seeks to redefine itself. Yet the ability to think of the writer as genius, seer, moral guide, all the romantic possibilities, in short, is arguably as important as it has always been. Engaging with what G.K.…

O'Hagan, Andrew – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2013
The novelist Andrew O'Hagan remembers his own early days and suggests writers are both born and made. Now the university--creative writing courses, in particular--may become the clearing houses for new literary talent as book publishing shrinks.

Thomson, Lesley – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2013
Is it possible to teach people to write fiction? A more important and helpful question is: "how" do we teach creative writing? And "who" are the teachers? A published writer is not necessarily qualified to teach creative writing. To helpfully share their declarative knowledge with students, a writer must embrace the art and…

Wirtz, Jason – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2013
This essay introduces a novel way to conceptualize writerly invention -- invention as adopting a non-intentional intellectual stance wherein heuristics are experienced as acting upon the writer as opposed to being enacted by the writer. This view of invention complicates and extends the traditional, Aristotelian view of invention as discreet…

Tindol, Robert – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2013
Ralph Waldo Emerson's first essay, "Nature," has been viewed as a reconciliation of the world of nature with the world of mind. A close analysis shows that Emerson was in fact attempting to come to terms with human fragility in a unique way by delineating the point at which the worldly and the transcendental are demarcated. Because…
