The final chapter in this book examines pedagogies of place. The seven authors discuss the pitfalls and promises of teaching regional studies in or on Appalachia, the South and Southwest, the Midwest, and New England as well as trans-regional Native American studies. They discuss whether and how region still matters to the students they encounter, what role they think region should play in contemporary social science and humanities pedagogy, and how they attempt to leverage interests in regional inequities and uneven geographic development to provoke student insights into other varieties of social injustice.

Keywords:   region, pedagogy of place, inequality, social justice, Appalachia, American South, American Southwest, American Midwest, New England, Native American studies
