Abstract

No region has more distinct images of place than the South. This Corner of Canaan: Curriculum Studies of Place & the Reconstruction of the South makes a unique contribution to studies of curriculum and place, linking the particularities of Southern culture to social concerns of curriculum theory. Written by a Southerner about the South, this book extends curriculum of place by moving beyond a monolithic, pastoral South to one that exists within the paradox of its own aberrations: nostalgia, queer fundamentalist Christianity with its own anomalous notions of grace and communion, homeplaces of difference, and an apocalyptic Biblical vision.
