Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel seeks to theorize the female Asian American body as a biopolitical site for either a patriarchal or maternal dialogue and to investigate these representations and the textual body in order to consider the following:

Are these representations vehicles through/by which postcolonial and diasporic trauma is articulated?


Are maternal bodies deleted from family histories?

Does the body represent a sexualized and feminized nation?

What are the haunted histories and locations of the Asian American experience in the literary field and in the American field of cultural production?


How does the narrator serve as a cultural translator?

JANE AUSTEN & MEMORY

 

The Motto (from Mansfield Park):

       Fanny: “If any one faculty of our nature may be called more wonderful than the rest, I do think it is memory. There seems something more speakingly incomprehensible in the powers, the failures, the inequalities of memory, than in any other of our intelligences. The memory is sometimes so retentive, so serviceable, so obedient – at others, so bewildered and so weak – and at others again, so tyrannic, so beyond controul! – We are to be sure a miracle every way – but our powers of recollecting and of forgetting, do seem peculiarly past finding out.”
