Abstract

Georgia Southern University faculty member Robert L. Lake authored "Sailing with Septima: A Curricular Journey Through the Jim Crow South" in A Curriculum of Place: Understandings Emerging through the Southern Mist.

Book Summary: Since the United States has gone South in a number of respects, it is crucial to our understandings of ourselves and our current milieu to peer through the mist that covers the intricacies of the culture and history of the South. A Curriculum of Place: Understandings Emerging through the Southern Mist presents new and provocative insights into the study of curriculum and place focusing on the South. The essays emphasize understanding the importance of Southern place politically, educationally, and experientially. Southern place is studied autobiographically, historically, and educationally through the lenses of race, class, gender, sexuality, and social justice. Questions are raised concerning the effects of place on the development of Southern identity, educational dispositions, popular culture, politics, and other issues. Ultimately this book affirms the importance of the study of place in contemporary discussions of culture and curriculum.
