Contents Introduction : but, seriously, what's this book about? -- The educational conceptual perspective : ethnice identity, literacy, and reader-response pedagogy -- Anglophone Arab literature in diaspora : living on the fringes of culture -- The theoretical and methodological framework : postcolonial theory, double consciousness, and study design -- The Arab diasporic condition and the representational in selected short stories -- Double consciousness : the poetics and politics of being Canadian -- Implications and conclusions.
Summary This book, framed through the notion of double consciousness, brings postcolonial constructs to sociopolitical and pedagogical studies of youth that have yet to find serious traction in education. Significantly, this book contributes to a growing interest among educational and curriculum scholars in engaging the pedagogical role of literature in the theorization of an inclusive curriculum. Therefore, this study not only recognizes the potential of immigrant literature in provoking critical conversation on changes young people undergo in diaspora, but also explores how the curriculum is informed by the diasporic condition itself as demonstrated by this negotiation of foreignness between the student and selected texts.
