Asian and Asian American Literature Panel-PAMLA 2008 (4/15/08; PAMLA,
11/7/08-11/8/08)
Proposals for individual presentations are invited for the Asian and Asian
American Literature panel at the 2008 meeting of the Pacific Ancient and
Modern Language Association (PAMLA). The panel topic is open, but I am
especially interested in papers that explore relationships between Asian
American experiences, writing, identity, and so on and the larger Asian
diaspora and even postcolonial study of Asian and Asian American
experience. These relationships might include, but are not limited to

The connection between Asian and Asian American during the era of
globalization
Asian Americans returning to Asian countries for work, marriage, etc.;
Asian Americans acquisition of Asian cultural literacies/identities;
Experiences of ethnic Asians in Europe, Canada, Australia, Africa, and
South America as compared to Asian Americans;
Asian interethnic connections and crises in the US and abroad;
Postcolonial study of Asian and Asian American experience during the era of
globalization
Pan-Asian media (such as AZN-TV in the US)
Issues of immigration, transnationalism, and diaspora and their
relevance for Asian/American communities are also welcome
Papers focusing on literature, theatre, print and broadcast media, history,
and any other aspects of Asian and Asian American culture and experience
are welcome.

This year’s conference will be held at Pomona College in Claremont, CA, 7-8
November, 2008. Please send a 500 word abstract and brief CV by email
attachment to Wenji Zhou at jadestone557_at_hotmail.com, or
Zhou36_at_mailbox.sc.edu. Proposal deadline is 15 April, 2008; inquiries
welcome.
