Reviews

[McCarroll's] study of Appalachian film highlights the multiplicity of the region and refuses the monolithic and prescriptive tendencies of un-Appalachian critics.--Rachel Bryan "The Baffler "
Responding directly to the reductive cultural stereotyping of twentieth-century Appalachia, Meredith McCarroll's Unwhite: Appalachia, Race, and Film catalogues, analyzes, and historicizes the cinematic figures that invent Appalachia for the twentieth and twenty-first century. Beyond offering a genre study of films about Appalachia, Unwhite points to the centrality of Appalachian types for shaping US economic and political processes.--Walt Hunter "The South Carolina Review "
