New Faculty Publication: Toni Morrison’s Secret Drive

Dr. Shawnrece Campbell (associate professor in English and associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences) has recently co-authored Toni Morrison’s Secret Drive: A Reader-Response Study of the Fiction and Its Rhetoric (McFarland Press). The book argues that late Toni Morrison, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, intentionally leaves textual gaps and enigmas to inspire readers to recognize and question their preconceptions and to participate in dismantling racism and sexism.
