This roundtable explores the pedagogical and critical impact of the Heath Anthology on multilingual literatures of the United States. The roundtable will address the increased visibility of non-English US literatures, ways the Heath altered pedagogical practices, traditionally trained teachers' use of the Heath's non-English materials, non-English texts, and notions of Americanness in the classroom and in criticism.
