Southeast Asian travelogues and global Asia

This laboratory considers the ways in which travelogues by Southeast Asians articulated the concept of inter-Asian connections, thus prefiguring the term ‘global Asia.’ Examples include the study of early modern India and Southeast Asia by Chinese-language Nanyang (South Seas) historians in 1950s Singapore, as reflected in their travel memoirs, as well as the Malaccan writer and translator Munsyi Abdullah’s Bahasa chronicles of his voyages to Mecca and northern Malaysia in the late nineteenth century. We are interested in papers that engage in the following topics:

Working-Class Literature in Finland and Finnish America

In 2019, September 20–22, the site for FinnFest USA is Detroit, Michigan, the United States capital of the automobile industry. People of Finnish origin have been a part of this industry, creating a significant Finnish community in Detroit between the 1920s and the 1950s. Even today, Detroit remains one of the largest metropolitan regions in the United States for people of Finnish origin. Finnish Americans were an integral part of the industrial history of the United States and deeply engaged in urban America and its factory work.

MLA 2020: "Early Modern Resilience: Shakespeare and Beyond," Special Session

How does early modern literature portray the resilience of women or other marginalized groups in times of crisis? What strength or power is found in resilience? Is resilience similar to #resist, the experience of domestic violence, or #metoo? How can we understand resilience within feminist criticism, critical race theory, post-colonialism, or other methodologies? How does resilience change our reading (or performance) of a text, and can we begin to theorize the way resilience functions in the early modern world? All texts from the early modern world and all methodologies welcome.
