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…

Takahashi, Reiko – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
Over the decades, efforts have been made to incorporate diverse perspectives on World Englishes into English Language Teaching (ELT) practice and teaching materials.

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…

McKenzie, Cori – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
This study explores the relationship between two values that sit at the heart of English education: a commitment to democratic citizenship and a commitment to fostering students' personal growth. Some scholars have argued that these values are often at odds and the "great challenge" of the field is to unite the individualistic and social…

Mason, Jessica; Giovanelli, Marcello – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
This article examines the practice of studying texts in secondary school English lessons as a particular type of reading experience. Through a critical stylistic analysis of a popular edition of John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men", the article explores how reading the text is framed by educational editions, and how this might present the…

Diamond, Fleur; Parr, Graham; Bulfin, Scott – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
Evidence has been accumulating for some time about the impact of standards-based education reforms on schools and schooling, but there has been little research investigating the influence of these reforms on university-based initial teacher education (ITE). This article critically inquiries into the effects of these reforms on an ITE co-teaching…

Wolfsdorf, Adam – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
Trigger warnings are posing serious threats to the ways that English educators can teach at the university level. If Aristotle--and Hillis-Miller years later--argue that literature must arouse and bring about catharsis, then proponents of trigger warnings are anaesthetising the power of words and watering down their ability to incite emotional…

This essay takes Michael Young's 2007 call "to bring knowledge back in" as an occasion to reflect on the relationship between subject English and the disciplinary knowledge that provides its foundations. It focuses on a key text in the history of English teaching, namely "The Teaching of English in England", published in 1921…

Williams, Sandra; Willis, Rachel – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017

It follows on from a text-based analysis of the series published in this journal (22(3) 2015). Data collected from 9-12 year olds demonstrate how actual readers took up the invitation offered by…

Yandell, John – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
British Conservatives happily acknowledge the debt that they owe to E.D. Hirsch. To understand the nature of their curricular project, and how it is located within the wider goals of education and social policy, we need to attend carefully to the character of this transatlantic borrowing. Its emphases and omissions reveal much about the…

Jones, Susan – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
The film, "I, Daniel Blake", has received critical acclaim for its portrayal of the experiences of those attempting to navigate the bureaucracy of the British welfare state system. In this article, I use the depiction of literacy in the film as a lens through which I examine both the role of literacy in compounding the challenge for…
