Confluence Narratives : Ethnicity, History, and Nation-Making in the Americas Hardback
Confluence Narratives: Ethnicity, History, and Nation-Making in the Americas examines a new literary genre that links the Americas together through three common historical experiences: colonization, slavery, and immigration.
Informed by postcolonial theory, this book analyzes a selection of novels from North and South Americas to discuss the impact of ethnicity in the construction of national identities, highlight the inherently transcultural aspect of the American character, and to problematize the concept of the contemporary nation.
