CFP: Asian Gothic Literature (31 Dec. 2003, Collection)
=20
I am soliciting for ABSTRACTS at this stage for a monograph of scholarly
essays on Asian Gothic Literature. Despite its Anglo-centric literary
heritage, I believe that the Gothic, in its ambivalence and
susceptibility to polyvalent interpretations and theorising, is a
helpful way of reading and understanding the vast output of powerful
Asian texts that carry strong strains of the forbidden, the

other =91Gothic=92 concerns). Furthermore, a vast majority of =
contemporary
Asian writers have been exposed to turn-of-the-century Western

collection as described below. We would need a one-page abstract by

volume of essays exploring the intersection between postcolonial and
globalization studies. We believe that such an exploration is important
to undertake at this time to counter the hegemonizing/homogenizing
tendencies we sense emerging in dominant strands of contemporary
cultural theory. It is unclear whether contemporary globalization theory
has been made possible by the postcolonial challenge to older
Eurocentric forms of globalization premised on the centrality of the
