Genre and White Supremacy in the Postemancipation United States

How are we to comprehend, diagnose, and counter a system of racist subjugation so ordinary it has become utterly asymptomatic? Challenging the prevailing literary critical inclination toward what makes texts exceptional or distinctive, this book underscores the urgent importance of genre for tracking conventionality as it enters into, constitutes, and reproduces ordinary life.
