Beyond the Borders: American Literature and Post-Colonial Theory
Wydawnictwo: Pluto Books
In this way the contributors explore key questions about national identity and multiculturalism: why, for instance, is a Native writer categorised within 'American literature' if writing on one side of the border, but as 'Canadian' and 'post-colonial' if writing on the other? This is a challenging collection that raises questions not only about the boundaries of post-colonial theory, but also about ethnicity and multiculturalism, and the impact of immigration and assimilation -- issues that lie at the heart of the literary curriculum.
"a mass of interesting stuff here that scholars in the field will want to read"
