Abstract

Authoritative voices in the Anglophone world have interpellated teachers as responsible for the transmission of an already-fixed canon: their task is thus conceptualised as both providing their students with access to such knowledge and inculcating in their students an appropriate attitude of appreciation towards the already-valorised literary works. Recent research in Australia and England suggests that some teachers, at least, are able to represent their work somewhat differently. This paper will explore these alternative conceptions of literary knowledge and pedagogy.
