Teaching Hemingway Short Stories through the Lens of Critical Race Theory
Grounds her pedagogical approach to In Our Time in the concept that race is socially constructed. Wright-Cleveland’s method guides students to a fuller understanding of the influence Hemingway’s early environments had on his racial education and writing and also to question their own socially constructed racial identities and attitudes. Wright-Cleveland culturally and historically contextualizes Oak Park and Petoskey to expose their contradictory racial attitudes, which resulted in the author’s rejection of white power and privilege. Focuses on “Indian Camp” and “The Doctor and the Doctor’s Wife.” Outlines active learning activities.
