Novel notes: Working with U.S. and European scholars, Maryemma Graham, professor of English and director of the Project on the History of Black Writing, has edited a new book of essays covering 150 years of the history of the African American novel.
Released this summer by Cambridge University Press, The Cambridge Companion to the African American Novel is the first of a series planned by the history project at KU and the English university’s press. The series will provide scholarly and critical resources for students and teachers. A second volume on the history of the African American novel is scheduled to be published in 2007.
Graham and Giselle Lisa Anatol, KU assistant professor of English, contributed chapters to the first volume. Graham wrote the introduction; Anatol, a chapter on New World writers with historical ties to the Caribbean.
The book cover design is by Carol Ann Carter, KU professor of art.
