Explorations in Ethnic Studies
Studies of multi-ethnic literature of the U.S., proposed in "From the Ground Up ..." should be, if they are not already, accepted fields of study in colleges, universities and secondary schools. One would hope that by now, the unique perspective offered by multi-ethnic studies would be appreciated for the insight it offers in understanding the many elements which have created our heritage, history and contemporary "American Society" -- and, by extension, global society as well. One would expect that multi-ethnic studies are, or will soon be requisite in "standard" humanities curricula for the same reasons that courses such as geography, world history and literature and studies of European and American history and literature are required.
