Negotiating Gender: New Perspectives on Asian American Literary Studies

This proposed collection of essays intends to tackle a fundamental issue in
Asian American literary studies—the gender gap, i.e. a fission roughly
along gender lines in Asian American thinking and articulation about ethnic
identity. Ever since the early 1970s, Asian American feminists and
nationalists have been engaged in a heated exchange on the roles of gender,
race, and culture in the formation of an Asian American identity, with
gender being the defining element. While the debate has invigorated Asian
American critical discourse, the prolonged warring atmosphere has also
divided Asian American community.
