Abstract
American ethnic literature today is becoming more important in the curricula of American Studies programs and English departments, because it poses the vital question of American multiculturalism. The multiculturalism within the USA is a dominant social, cultural, and political phenomenon which is likely to define what contemporary American identity is in the globalizing world. It is because the globalization is a true condition for Americans. The issues of globalization have spread everywhere. In order to prepare for the global world, as a third world example, Korean youths are going to Ivy League colleges in the U.S., Koreans in their twenties are going to America for English language training, Koreans in their thirties are going there to get an MBA degree which can promise a better salary, and Koreans in their forties are immigrating to the U.S. or Canada for themselves and. their children.
