“The Park” by James Matthews. Short stories by South African authors in the classroom


Term Paper, 2003

14 Pages


Abstract or Introduction

The seminar “Language and Literature in the New South Africa” familiarized students with a range of contemporary and antecedent short stories by South African authors in context of the highly problematic terms of apartheid and post-apartheid especially with regard to South African culture. A major aspect of the seminar was the question of identity and culture as it is recognizable in language and literature. Community should be achieved as an important role in South Africa. To implicate the usability for (short) stories in the English language classroom, the fact that they in general meet a basic human need and a plurality of methodological approaches especially for young people in order to understand the “other” are to be emphasised.
