Transformable Race: Surprising Metamorphoses in the Literature of Early America (Book)
Title: Transformable Race: Surprising Metamorphoses in the Literature of Early America
Author: Katy L. Chiles
Abstract: Contrasting sharply with subsequent periods, much late eighteenth-century thought conceptualized race as an external, mutable bodily condition that could change over time. Identifying how this thinking shapes and is shaped by literary culture, Transformable Race and the Literatures of Early America argues that the notion of transformable race structures how early American writers depict the production of racial identities.
