Diary as Literature Through the Lens of Multiculturalism in America
This collection of diary voices, side by side, document and demonstrate how social pressures and literary practices affect people despite race, culture, creed, or pedigree.
Based on the diary, the contributors of Diary as Literature write about multiculturalism and intercultural relations during the Civil War experienced by African-Americans and Irish-Americans soldiers, through the lives of Afro-Cuban diaspora, within a New Englander’s cultural clash in the Appalachia, the hardships of a Bengali immigrant in New York City, and the “racial barriers as a false social construct to create multicultural identities.”
Contributors include Sumaira Ahammed and Virginia Maresca from St. John’s University in Queens, New York; Rachel Wagner from Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey; Alexa Potts and Philip Krummrich from Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky; Daniel P. Kotzin from Medaille College in Buffalo, New York; Anthony David Franklin from Penn State in Pennsylvania; Corey D. Greathouse from Austin Community College in Austin, Texas; Aisha Z. Cort from Howard University in Washington D.C.; Kelsey Paige Mason from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio; Suzy Woltmann from the University of California in Oakland, California; and Chimene Jackson from Vagabroad Journals in Brooklyn, New York.
