Subjectivity and Community in Ethnic American Women's Memoir


Revised due date.


Papers may analyze how Ethnic American women use memoir to claim
subjectivity and join communities. Papers could explore how writers use
memoir to achieve self-actualization; claim subjectivity; and reconcile
their personal and community identities. Papers could also explore how
Ethnic American women manipulate conventional narrative forms (i.e., slave
narratives, travel narratives, and the autobiographical novel) to claim
subjectivity and to gain access to both the publishing community and
mainstream American society.
