Approaches to Teaching Bechdel's Fun Home

pubblicato da The Modern Language Association of America

Prezzo online:

Alison Bechdelâ€s Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic has quickly joined the ranks of celebrated literary graphic novels. Set in part at a family-run funeral home, the book explores Alisonâ€s complicated relationship with her father, a closeted gay man. Amid the tensions of her home life, Alison discovers her own lesbian sexuality and her talent for drawing. The coming-of-age story and graphic format appeal to students. However, the bookâ€s nonlinear structure; intertextuality with modernist novels, Greek myths, and other works; and frank representations of sexuality and death present challenges in the classroom.

This volume offers strategies for teaching Fun Home in a variety of courses, including literature, womenâ€s and gender studies, art, and education. Part 1, “Materials,†outlines the textâ€s literary, historical, and theoretical allusions. The essays of part 2, “Approaches,†emphasize the workâ€s genres, including autobiography and graphic narrative, as well as its psychological dimensions, including trauma, disability, and queer identity. The essays give options for reading Fun Home along with Bechdelâ€s letters and drafts; her long-running comic strip, Dykes to Watch Out For; the Broadway musical adaptation of the book; and other stories of LGBTQ lives.
