Challenges in Enforcing “Linguocultural Aspect of Fictional Literature” in Uzbekistan Higher Education


Teaching the Linguocultural Aspect of foreign literature is a new branch in Uzbekistan, and it has been a crucial part of the discussion in the education system. Considering the process of a student-centered classroom, learning English literature through the lingual and cultural factors can be the most perspective part of the involvement. In Uzbekistan, Linguocultural Aspect of Fictional Literature has yet to be researched thoroughly, focusing on texts written in English. There are reasonable changes in how literary studies have been practiced over the last century regarding interconnections between literature and other fields. As researchers have already indicated, there is a need to rename the field "literary and cultural studies" (Segal, 2015). Z.N. Patil (2002) argues that developing intercultural communicative competence can be achieved through international literature. Applying Hanauer’s (2001) method of reading literary texts Focus-on-Cultural Understanding in developing cultural awareness, specifically gender perception (Wasikiewicz-Firlej, 2012) might result in the effectiveness of foreign literature classes. Concerning these issues, we designed our syllabus for a one-term optional subject entitled "Linguocultural Aspect of Literature" for the specialty of literary studies in the Masters’ Department at Uzbekistan State University of World Languages (UzSWLU). The results showed that the subject helped students develop a positive attitude toward foreign literature through lingual and cultural means.
