General Discussions of Mennonite Literature Bibliography

The Mennonite/s Writing in Canada Bibliography is here: https://danielshankcruz.com/mennonite-s-writing-in-canada-bibliography/

The Mennonite/s Writing in the U.S. Bibliography is here: https://danielshankcruz.com/mennonite-s-writing-in-the-u-s-bibliography/

Last Updated 26 October 2018

The bibliography includes critical and theoretical work about Mennonite literature in general, whether about the field as a whole or about multiple authors examined together. “Mennonite literature” is here defined as literature by writers who are either ethnic or theological Mennonites (or both), whether they claim the identity “Mennonite” for themselves or not, and whether or not their work contains explicitly Mennonite characters or subject matter. The citation style is a hybrid between the MLA Handbook, 7th edition, and the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition.

With a few exceptions, the bibliography does not include self-published books, book reviews, children’s books, or individual poems or stories published in periodicals or miscellaneous collections.  However, see “Specialized Bibliographies” below.

The bibliography was created as a separate entity in August 2018 by Daniel Shank Cruz, Associate Professor of English at Utica College, from sections formerly housed in the Mennonite/s Writing in Canada and Mennonite/s Writing in the U.S. bibliographies developed and maintained by Ervin Beck, Professor of English at Goshen College, from 1997-2018.
