This panel seeks to explore (post) modernist experimentation in the poetry, fiction and film of 20th and 21st century East Asia, as well as the international and intra-Asian cultural currents that engendered these forms of expression. Papers tracing literary and aesthetic connections between writers, poets or film-makers of different nations, cultures or historical periods are particularly welcome.

Please upload a 50 word abstract and a 500 word proposal to the PAMLA 2012 web site at www.pamla.org/2012 as soon as possible and no later than May 15, 2012. You may also submit your abstract and proposal to the Presiding Officer of this panel, Geraldine Fiss, at gfiss@usc.edu.
