Worldlits.com offers new, innovative strategies for the teaching of world literature and World Englishes literature.
Worldlits.com asks questions such as: What do we mean by ‘world literature’? What are the differences between ‘diaspora literature’, ‘world literature in translation’ and ‘World Englishes literature’?
Training half day and full day workshops are available to help explore what we mean by ‘World Literature’. An example full day workshop investigates how we define ‘world literatures’ and also offers teaching approaches to delivering World Englishes texts in the classroom including example resources.
Workshops have already been well received on BEd and PGCE courses in the UK exploring the National Curriculum, I.B Diploma courses, teacher training courses in universities in Europe and with NAAE (National Association of Advisers in English) in the UK.
Worldlits.com uses creative consultation approaches in exploring world and multicultural literatures to help answer questions such as: what are some of the barriers that inhibit full engagement with world and multicultural literatures? Creative and particpatory consultation methods allow for real engagement and a safe space for such issues to be debated. As an example, the picture below shows a creative tool kit being used with One Thousand and One Nights. See also the KARVAN workshops on this website.
