Ethnic minority cross-genre texts are collections of subverted mainstream canonical traditions and conventions. Cross-genre writing challenges traditional notions about genre through content and form. This work covers four ethnic groups of U.S. women writers and their development of cross-genre writing; namely, Latina, African, Indian, and Asian. The analysis includes the formation of cross-genre writing and its connection to women of color, and examines a number of cross-genre women writers. Eclectic critical literary theories used include the "posts" of modernism, colonialism, feminism structuralism, and cultural studies. The analysis designates that cross-genre writing is a new creative way for ethnic women writers to theorize their experience in radical and innovative terms. This interdisciplinary analysis address new interesting discourses and questions of multiple identity politics that seek to integrate ethnicity, race, class, gender, sexuality, and language. This should be enlightening and inspiring for those who have witnessed the inauguration of President Obama, and for those who believe in global, cultural, and social change.
