Raymond Carver's canonical status is secure: his short stories appear regularly in all of the major literary anthologies, and his fiction and poetry are taught at universities around the world. Despite this, there are few instructional aids to teaching Carver's work at university level, and none that take into account the interdisciplinary nature of many modern university courses. Carver Across the Curriculum addresses these needs. Drawing on the experiences and expertise of a group of international scholars, it presents a variety of innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to teaching Carver's work at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The chapters cover a wide range of disciplines, including music, creative writing, translation, humor studies, food studies, the medical humanities, and the visual and performing arts. As such, the collection serves as a guide and a source of inspiration to instructors, and offers readers new insights into Carver's fiction and poetry.
