About this item

While Kate Chopin, famed writer of The Awakening, has received considerable scholarly attention over the years, very little scholarship has focused on her twenty-first century impact, particularly on the global level. Kate Chopin in Context: New Approaches revisits familiar themes, establishes new themes, and brings theory to practice in classroom settings, where so many encounter Chopin as readers and as teachers. Notably, the collection includes essays from around the globe, written by scholars from North America, South America, Europe, and the Middle East, offering readers glimpses into the multi-national appreciation and versatility of the author's work. Other topics include technological applications to teaching Chopin, Gender Studies, historical and legal context, among many others. In turn, this much-needed collection reiterates and reinvigorates Kate Chopin's relevance and ultimately influence on the history of American writing.

Kate Chopin in Context: New Approaches is a collection of essays that revisits familiar themes, establishes new themes, and then brings theory to practice in classroom settings, where so many encounter Chopin as readers and as teachers. The collection draws on the work of seasoned and new scholars, which has the benefit of providing diverse perspectives that span history, culture, and generations. Notably, the collection includes essays from around the globe, written by scholars from North America, South America, Europe, and the Middle East, which offer readers glimpses into the multi-national appreciation and versatility of the author's work, but which also broaden conventional approaches to Chopin. Last, the collection bridges theory to practice, bringing readers into the classroom, where much of Chopin theory has originated and developed in more recent years, with essays that incorporate a range of pedagogical approaches for the modern student, including, necessarily, technological applications to teaching Chopin's fiction.
