About the book

Ana Gonçalves Matos / Sílvia Melo-Pfeifer (eds.)

Literature and Intercultural Learning
in Language and Teacher Education

This book addresses the value of literature in intercultural perspective in two interrelated spheres: foreign or second language learning and language teacher education. It brings together researchers of several disciplinary fields who crisscross research and empirical evidence about the valuable role of literature in the development of intercultural competence. The authors, through their different approaches and diverse contexts, from lower to higher education, hope to encourage others to explore literature in a foreign or second language as a space for readers of all ages to generate critical thinking, empathy, and intercultural learning.

Foreword

The nations must understand one another and quickly, and without the interposition of their governments, for the shrinkage of the globe is throwing them into one another’s arms.

(E.M. Forster, Notes on the English Character 1920)

Talk of globalisation, internationalisation and super-diversity is now commonplace. Prescient in this as in so much else, E. M. Forster wrote of the need for understanding – and of the urgency of this need – at the end of ‘the war to end wars’. He emphasised that people rather than governments should seek what we today call ‘intercultural communication’. His emphasis was justified by John Maynard Keynes’s analysis, in the same year, of the failings of those who govern, as he observed the Versailles negotiations:
