Teachers interested in Literature, Geocriticism and Integrationist Pedagogies


We will aim at:
- Defining the fourth turn: the spatial turn, by differentiating places, spaces and interstices, and analysing their literary representations.
- Deconstructing literature as a form of mapping of real and imaginary spaces.
- Studying texts that depict the positive and negative effects of culture on individual identity.
- Reading a set of texts from a place-oriented perspective by taking a transdisciplinary approach to literature.
- Exploring Critical Place Pedagogy, its tenets and its instrumental and formative contribution to individuals’ re-inhabiting space


• Space vs. place
• Territory, (de)territorialization and border(lands)
• Displacement: migration, diaspora & exile
• Geocriticism & Ecocriticism as theoretical frameworks
• Utopia/dystopia/ heterotopia
- Literature
• A set of literary texts to explore issues of place, space and subjectivity: children’s literature, literary classics, texts in Englishes.
- Pedagogy
• Critical Place Pedagogy: helping individuals re-inhabit space


1) Presentation and discussion of how to approach Literatures in Englishes through approaches sensitive to place, space and subjectivity 2) Exploration of geo-critical and eco-critical theories and their main tenets. 3) Reading of a selection of literary extracts (children’s literature, literary classics, literatures in Englishes) as resource materials for intercultural education in the light of the theoretical frameworks proposed 4) Presentation of Critical Place Pedagogy, its main tenets and its didactic implications and contribution to intercultural education.
