Ethnic Life Writing and Histories: Genres, Performance, and Culture
Lit, 2007 - 256 páginas
In the context of the fraught ethnic politics in our increasingly globalized world, negotiating with historical memory has become both a cultural obsession and a powerful political weapon.
The essays describe how processes of literary creativity and historical inscription blend significantly to produce texts that require nuanced readings on many levels. Half the essays focus on Asian American texts, inviting crucial connections and insights on the ways ethnic concerns are reflected methodologically.
