deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel seeks to theorize the female Asian American body as a biopolitical site for either a patriarchal or maternal dialogue and to investigate these representations and the textual body in order to consider the following:

Are these representations vehicles through/by which postcolonial and diasporic trauma is articulated?


Are maternal bodies deleted from family histories?

Does the body represent a sexualized and feminized nation?

What are the haunted histories and locations of the Asian American experience in the literary field and in the American field of cultural production?


How does the narrator serve as a cultural translator?

In 2012, Germany became the second largest immigration country in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, after the United States. As numbers of migrants to the EU continue to climb, debates about Germany’s status as an Einwanderungsland have become increasingly charged. The complex effects of this most recent experience are far from unprecedented in Germany’s national history, however. Throughout the latter half of the 20th century, Germany witnessed dramatic shifts not only in its population and national borders, but also in its notions of belonging, citizenship and foreignness.
