Under Western Eyes: East Asia in Anglophone Fiction (Special Session proposal for MLA 2013 Boston, MA)
Increasingly important to the world economy as an engine of growth, the dynamic region of East Asia (China, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Korea) has for decades figured prominently in world media for its critical geopolitical position. But how has East Asia’s emergence onto the world stage been reflected in late 20th-century English-language literature? This panel invites papers on recent Anglophone fiction set in East Asia; please send abstract of 1-2 pp along with a current c.v. to Mary Goodwin (profgood@hotmail.com) by 15 March 2012.
