Reading Trauma in ((African) American Literature
The introduction explicates theories of dual-witnessing and Venn liminality and introduces the reader to the terminology the author developed to address readerly engagement of (African) American traumatic and testimonial literature. The introduction also explains how the author’s modes of reading trauma intersect with American literature, critical race theory, and gender criticism and unpacks what (and how) this Venn conversation contributes to the fields of trauma, race, gender, and reception studies and (African) American literature.
