About this product
- DescriptionFor decades, the field of Mennite literature has been dominated by the question of Mennite identity. After Identity interrogates this prolonged preoccupation and explores the potential to move beyond it to a truly post-identity Mennite literature. The twelve essays collected here view Mennite writing as transitioning beyond a tradition concerned primarily with defining itself and its cultural milieu. What this means for the future of Mennite literature and its attendant criticism is the question at the heart of this volume. Contributors explore the histories and contexts--as well as the gaps--that have informed and diverted the perennial focus on identity in Mennite literature, even as that identity is reread, reframed, and expanded.After Identity is a timely reappraisal of the Mennite literature of Canada and the United States at the very moment when that literature seems ready to progress into a new era.In addition to the editor, the contributors are Ervin Beck, Di Brandt, Daniel Shank Cruz, Jeff Gundy, Ann Hostetler, Julia Spicher Kasdorf, Royden Loewen, Jesse Nathan, Magdalene Redekop, Hildi Froese Tiessen, and Paul Tiessen.
