White Writers, Race Matters by Prof. Gregory Jay published by Oxford University Press

Congratulations to UWM English department chair, Dr. Gregory Jay for his recent publication of White Writers, Race Matters: Fictions of Racial Liberalism from Stowe to Stockett which has been released by Oxford University Press. From the publisher’s site:

“What explains the enduring popularity of white-authored protest fiction about racism in America? How have such books spoken to the racial crises of their time, and why do they remain important in our own era? White Writers, Race Matters explores these questions and the controversies they raise by tracking this tradition in American literary history.”
