Brad Lint Has Article Published

MANSFIELD, PA— Brad Lint, assistant professor of English at Mansfield University, had his article, “A Barbarian’s Reed Pipe: Teaching Maxine Hong Kingston’s The Woman Warrior,” published in the Winter 2017 (Volume 8, Number 4) issue of Teaching American Literature: A Journal of Theory and Practice (TALTP).

Kingston’s memoir blends autobiography with folktale and myth to describe her Chinese American upbringing. The Woman Warrior is one of the most widely-taught texts in American literature and the single best-known work of Asian American literature. Lint’s essay proposes a pedagogical approach combining genre studies, cultural authenticity, Chinese American history, postcolonial studies, and feminism to afford students a rich, theoretically-informed reading of this complex, multilayered classic.

TALTP is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles on best classroom practices, including the use of the Internet and other technologies in teaching American literature. The journal is aimed at instructors of college literature courses and focuses on pedagogically sound and innovative ideas as well as applications of critical theory in American literature courses.
