This panel seeks papers examining comparative Ethnic Studies in a
transnational or international framework. Questions and concerns can
include but are not limited to: How is the transnational and comparative
impetus behind, for example, Asian and Asian American Studies relevant to
the future of American Studies? How might an Afro-Asian based critique of
American race discourse reconfigure interdisciplinary approaches to
comparative racial formation. What are the critical intersections linking
American race discourse with Area Studies, and how does this
intersectionality serve to recontextualize current debates about
globalization and transnationalism?

Please send a 500-word abstract and CV to Janice Tanemura,
jannaoko_at_berkeley.edu, no later than January 25th.
