Oh you lost God! You endless trace!
Only because in the end hate divided you
are we  now  nature's  mouth  and  listeners.  
~ Rilke, The Sonnets to Orpheus, 26

A 'trace'  can be that which has existed, and which is now past; or that which has passed, in the case of a track or a footprint; or that which copied or drawn or outlined, such as a map or a word in the sand. It can be used as a noun or a verb: as an object or concept, or an active process of discovery.

Second Symposium on Asians in the Americas, 27-28 Sept 2013, Malibu, CA

updated: 
Monday, April 1, 2013 - 10:34pm
Pepperdine U

This symposium aims to explore the multifaceted representations of Asian lives in the Americas in history, sociology, religion, anthropology, art, education, film, and popular culture. In contemporary diaspora, globalization, and transnational studies we are reminded of the movement of Asians to the Americas as a people and through representations. We emphasize that although Asians have been in the Americas since at least the 16th Century, the movement of Asians outside of Asia is, ostensibly, a footnote in many fields. Similarly, current scholarship of Asians in the Americas focuses on East Asians in the Americas and rarely discusses South Asians, Southeast Asians, Central Asians, and Western Asians.
