America's Native Voice in Pen

Author
  • Daniel Wise (Iowa State University)

Abstract

Many students enter the university setting with a narrow European-American view of literature that limits the contributions of diverse writers in the classroom. Professors in Iowa State courses of literature and creative writing have demonstrated epistemological benefits to including a diverse field of authors in their courses, many of whom are American Indians. How does assigning and reading American Indian works of literature enhance the education at Iowa State? Learn how professors in the Iowa State English department are expanding classroom pedagogy to teach a diverse array of styles and literary perspectives that demonstrate the importance of American Indian literature in teaching creative writing and contemporary literature.
