Editor(s): Paul D. Reich and Angela Tenga
Subject: American Studies

Book Description

This volume contains a variety of essays about Florida literature and history by scholars from across the state representing every kind of institution of higher learning, from community colleges to small liberal arts institutions to large universities. The essays in the first section, Pedagogy, focus on the college classroom and the challenges facing institutions of higher learning in Florida. The essays in Old Florida explore a number of writers – including Zora Neale Hurston, Jack Kerouac, and Williams S. Burroughs – who, at various points in their careers, called Florida home. The final section, Contemporary Florida, continues to identify the state’s place within larger literary, cultural, and political traditions.
