Chinese Teaching Guide to Harriet Jacobs
Project publishes a new cross-cultural teaching guide to Harriet Jacobs.
The Project has published a cross-cultural teaching guide to Harriet Jacobs' Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl. The guide was written by Joe Lockard and Shih Penglu. This guide accompanies a translation of the Jacobs narrative that awaits publication. US literature in Chinese translation tends to be very canonical and focuses on a limited number of African American voices. The Project's translation work will introduce Chinese readers and students to the historical richness of African American literature.
