A web of 20th century Dutch literature. Towards a new approach for teaching 20 th century literary history

This article presents the first results of work-in-progress of a teacher development team that works on teaching Dutch 20th century literature. The starting point of this project was: so-called modern literature has to be dealt with as a phenomenon that is historical to students in secondary education. Our analysis of the main problems that teachers experience with 20th century literary history has led to a set of principles that will serve as guidelines for the design of a model for teaching 20th century literature. We present a first draft of this model that aims to offer a series of lessons in a digital framework resembling a network of texts. This web of 20th century literature will combine two perspectives: at the one hand a contextual perspective on the literary text (‘text in context’), in which a central literary text is compared to contemporary historical texts and developments, at the other hand a longitudinal perspective (‘text in frame’), in which the text is compared to texts and developments from different time periods by using transhistorical themes or frames. The development of the first series of lessons according to our guidelines provides insights that will contribute to a next version of the web under construction.
