Чем вы займетесь

1. We will start with a brief overview of the most prominent US-American and English authors who have lived in Oaxaca, and Mexico, since 1900, and, to give a broader context, situate them on the timeline of Mexico's major historical events since 1900. (20 minutes)

2. Then, we will go into some depth on three texts. We will go over a summary of each one and then read an excerpt of each one, pointing out what makes the work special and how it explores the relationship between the author's original culture and the new culture s/he finds him/herself immersed in. Finally, we will compare the works, to further understand what makes each unique, as well as how as a whole they illuminate insights of the intercultural experience between Mexico and the US or the UK. (60 minutes)

----Bathroom / Refreshments break halfway through Step 2.---- (10 minutes)

3. To synthesize new knowledge, the student/s will produce their own writing, in the form of a first draft or notes towards a poem, short story, journal entry, essay, or article. I will offer constructive feedback. (25 minutes)

4. The student/s will leave with a bibliography, and a map of Oaxaca and Mexico showing where the authors lived. (5 minutes)

I am Program Director of the nonprofit Oaxaca y sus culturas hermanas del mundo, as well as a teacher and academic advisor with over 12 years of experience teaching, nearly four advising, and nearly 13 living in Oaxaca. I earned a Master's in American Studies from Heidelberg University in Germany, and a Bachelor's in English and Sociocultural Studies from Valparaiso University, where I won several writing awards. My nonfiction has been published in several newspapers and magazines. This course is based on a section of my Literature in the English Language course I taught for several years in the degree-granting School of Languages at a Oaxacan university.
