MELUS: Multi-Ethnic Literature of the U.S.

Vol. 34 (2009) through current issue

MELUS, a prestigious and rigorous journal in the field of multi-ethnic literature of the United States, has been a vital resource for scholarship and teaching for more than thirty years. Published quarterly, MELUS illuminates the national, international, and transnational contexts of U.S. ethnic literature. Articles in MELUS also engage newly emerging art forms such as graphic narrative and internet blogs, as well as multi-ethnic film, history, and culture. By including interviews with well established authors such as Maxine Hong Kingston and Richard Rodriguez, as well as more recent writers such as Junot Díaz, Cynthia Kadohata, and Diana Abu-Jaber, MELUS plays a pivotal role in the field of U.S. Ethnic Literature and is an indispensable resource for students, teachers, and scholars.
