Weik von Mossner, Alexa, Marijana Mikić, and Mario Grill (eds.). 2022. Ethnic American Literatures and Critical Race Narratology. New York and London: Routledge.

Situated at the intersection of post-classical narratology and context-oriented approaches in race, ethnic, and cultural studies, the contributions to this edited volume interrogate the complex and varied ways in which ethnic American authors use narrative form to engage readers in issues related to race and ethnicity.
