Reimagining Asian American Immigration History in the Americas

Asian American immigrants’ heterogeneity in their countries of departure, race, ethnicity, and class characterizes different immigrant experiences -- ranging from “voluntary” immigration to dislocation directly caused by wars and imperialism. What is the role of literature in preserving the history of their movements? How does literature reimagine the history of these marginalized subjects? What is the significance of narrating Asian American immigration history through literary forms? What do the stories of these subjects -- immigrants, refugees, undocumented immigrants, elite cosmopolitan, and many more -- suggest the meaning of belonging in the Americas?

Proust’s Way: Theorisations, Hybridisations, Mythologies

The centenary of Proust’s death next year is neither the only, nor the first event in honour of the author of In Search of Lost Time. This year, for instance, we celebrate the 150th birthday of his birth while, in 2013, the 100th anniversary of the publication of Swann’s Way was marked by a number of festivities. In its celebratory dimension, this upcoming centenary may seem more apt for initiatives conducted under the ambit of French Studies than under that of semiotics or narratology. However, we believe that it offers an opportunity for a broader, trans-disciplinary reflection.

NeMLA 2022 | To Write Like a Woman: Gender and Science Fiction

If one were to judge the genre of science fiction by the blockbuster films it has produced, one would think it is a hypermasculine, imperialist, anti-feminist genre. However, non-white, non-male people have shaped, defined, and sustained the genre throughout its existence as authors, editors, and fans. The modern founder of the genre was arguably Mary Shelley who initially published anonymously. However, authors like Ursula Le Guin and Octavia Butler are now synonymous with literary sci-fi. Furthermore, some of the most compelling and successful contemporary writers of science fiction are women of color.

Floating Islands; or, Saikaku's Eighteenth Century

American Society of 18th Century Studies

Friday, October 8, 2021

Following the various calls for a more global perspective on the eighteenth century at ASECS 2021, this panel seeks papers on the work of Japanese author Ihara Saikaku (1642-1693). In her 2016 book, The Age of Silver, Ning Ma discusses Saikaku as the most significant representative figure of the “stories of the floating world” that, she argues, should be seen as an emergence of realist fiction. A bestseller in 17th and 18th century Japan, Saikaku’s work fell into obscurity until a revival of interest in the late 19th century, when he became known as “Japan’s realist”.

In the wake of COVID, some workers have been deemed essential, forced to put their lives at risk to keep the market moving or care for those with the means to stay off the frontlines. While these jobs may be crucial, those who perform them are frequently treated as exchangeable.Yet as workers have become interchangeable, a fantastical contrast has emerged in the form of the non-fungible token (NFT): at the same time that stable employment and livable wages have been cut in the interest of profit, digital creations become irreplaceable tokens of payment. The catastrophic impact of the pandemic shows which systems of exchange are malleable or fluid and which remain brittle or stagnant.
