Mennonite/s Writing in the U.S. Bibliography

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

The General Discussions of Mennonite Literature Bibliography is here: https://danielshankcruz.com/general-discussions-of-mennonite-literature-bibliography/

Last Updated 3 November 2018

The bibliography includes work by Mennonite writers, that is, 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. Creative works are listed in chronological order and critical/theoretical works (some of which are by non-Mennonites) are listed alphabetically by title. 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 originally prepared for the “Mennonite/s Writing in the U.S.” conference, which was sponsored by the English Department of Goshen College and held there from 23-26 October 1997. It was created and maintained from 1997-2018 by Ervin Beck, Professor of English at Goshen College.  Linda Kimpel, Linda Rouch, Ann Hostetler, and others at Goshen College provided technical assistance. It has been maintained since August 2018 by Beck’s former student Daniel Shank Cruz, Associate Professor of English at Utica College.
