No region has more distinct images of place than the South. This Corner of Canaan: Curriculum Studies of Place & the Reconstruction of the South makes a unique contribution to studies of curriculum and place, linking the particularities of Southern culture to social concerns of curriculum theory. Written by a Southerner about the South, this book extends curriculum of place by moving beyond a monolithic, pastoral South to one that exists within the paradox of its own aberrations: nostalgia, queer fundamentalist Christianity with its own anomalous notions of grace and communion, homeplaces of difference, and an apocalyptic Biblical vision.

She offers those of us who navigate this landscape of lushness and sensuality, of silences and normalization, ways to think about how we can contribute to rescripting the meanings of this particularly queer social geography.
