Leah Milne

Assistant professor of English Leah Milne was congratulated with the annual Midwest Modern Language Association Book Award for her novel, Novel Subjects: Authorship as Radical Self-Care in Multiethnic American Narratives, published by The University of Iowa Press in July 2021.

This novel offers a “new way to look at multicultural literature” and “takes into account marginalized modes of storytelling, borders of belonging, the instutionalization of multiculturalism, and radical self-care.”

Here at UIndy, Milne teaches multicultural American literature and postcolonial literature and theory.
