About this item

Based on the author's PhD thesis from 2013, this study investigates conceptualizations of intercultural and trans-cultural learning based on Canadian children's and young adult fiction, to show how it helps students in secondary English-as-a-foreign-language (EFL) classrooms (particularly those in Germany) engage with otherness in a local and global context. It focuses on contemporary authors from different backgrounds and their publications since 2000: Ruby Slipperjack's Little Voice, Eric Walters' Run, and Hiromi Goto's The Water of Possibility. It discusses the development of concepts of cultural learning, key features of using literature in the EFL classroom, and curricula and literature used in intercultural communicative competence; the potential of Canadian literature for young readers' cultural competence; and key features of using literature in English language teaching, include alternatives to existing approaches and methods.
