Kevin Costner: Americas Teacher examines the role of Costner in educational settings domestically and abroad. Costners career over the past 35 years has seen ups and downs: his movies grossed 2 billion dollars in ticket sales worldwide and he has he won/been nominated for several Academy Awards but he also experienced critical and box office failures. Through the films in his oeuvre, Costner has been teaching audiences around the world about the United States--its history, people and culture. Some viewers and scholars recognize this as positive, others as problematic. This book serves as a place for teachers and scholars to explore ways in which Costner may be tapped for research and teaching purposes at all levels of education. It is organized around three large themes: Costners baseball films and their connection to Americana; Costners films through the more critical lenses of gender and new western scholarship; and Costners teaching of teachers, the pedagogical possibilities of his work.
