About this book

Considering new perspectives on writers such as Toni Morrison, Margaret Atwood, and Louise Erdrich, Confronting Visuality in Multi-ethnic Women's Writing traces a cross-cultural tradition in which contemporary female writers situate images of women within larger contexts of visuality.

Reviews

“In her compelling monograph Confronting Visuality in Multi-Ethnic Women's Writing, Angela Laflen offers an insightful perspective on a diverse selection of acclaimed contemporary women writers … .  Confronting Visuality in Multi-Ethnic Women's Writing is a stimulating and worthwhile contribution to the evolving field of feminist scholarship on the visual in literary texts.” (Roger Knight, TSWL Tulsa Studies in Women's Literature, 2015)


"Through a thoughtful and sophisticated yet accessible argument, Angela Laflen uses feminism, cultural studies, and critical race theories to examine a wide range of visual representations and their effects in literature by well-known authors, such as Toni Morrison and Margaret Atwood, as well as some up and coming ethnic writers." - Eleanor Ty, Professor of English, Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada, and author of Unfastened:Globality and Asian North American Narratives and The Politics of the Visible
