Teaching the Works of Eudora Welty

Eudora Welty’s photographs from the 1939 Mississippi State Fair offer an exciting opportunity to teach students visual literacy and introduce them to performance, critical race, gender, and disability studies. Seeing, reading, and thinking critically are important skills for any student, and close looking at Welty’s photographs of sideshow banners, including “Mule Face Woman,” “Headless Girl,” “Rubber Man,” and “Hypnotized,” in coordination with close reading of her short stories “Keela, the Outcast Indian Maiden” and “Lily Daw and the Three Ladies” facilitates a richer understanding of diversity.
