>Special Session: Canonical Revisions and World Literature
>
>Canonical revisions (as in J. M. Coetzee's rewriting of Robinson
>Crusoe or Jean Rhys's response to Jane Eyre) often provide a basis
>or a starting point for World Literature courses. How useful is such
>an approach, and what are its dangers? This panel seeks to explore
>the possibilities and perils of canonical revision as an organizing
>principle for introductory literature courses, whether World
>Literature or Postcolonial Literature. We would welcome both
>pedagogical case studies (particularly of uncommon pairings,
>especially in poetry or drama), and also papers that address the
>ramifications of using paired or clustered texts.
