Using Novels to Teach the Cultural Geographies of South Asia
I have taught the geographies of Asia for ten years. While I have found traditional materials like textbooks and articles useful for introducing students to the physical environment, political systems, and economic realities of the region, teaching about cultures is often a more difficult proposition. One way to address this problem is to assign novels as homework.
