NeMLA 2014 cfp - Questions of Form: Asian American Literature in the 21st Century

full name / name of organization: 
NeMLA 2014 (Northeast Modern Language Association)
contact email: 
tina.chen@psu.edu

What kinds of formal innovations characterize Asian American literatures of the 21st century? As contemporary Asian American literary production moves away from the tropes, genres, and formal characteristics that have been identified as ’Asian American,’ how do critics read and teach these texts? Essays addressing questions of form, experimentation, the literary marketplace, non-essentialist reading, and the disarticulated relationship between race and representation are particularly welcome. 1-page abstracts, c.v.s, to tina.chen@psu.edu
