Description

This new collection of 12 interdisciplinary essays sets out to chart the cultural construction of "ethnicity" as embodied in American ethnic literature. Looking at a diverse set of texts, the contributors place the subject in broad historical and dynamic contexts, focusing on the larger systems within which ethnic distinctions emerge and obtain recognition. They provide a critical framework for understanding not only ethnic literature, but also the underlying psychological, historical, social and cultural forces.show more
