We are seeking essays for an edited collection on "Asian American
Literature and Postcolonial Theory," which should be both an exploration
and a mapping of the debates around these two terms and their corollaries.
Such corollary debates have erupted over the use of terms such as diaspora,
cultural memory, racial melancholy and trauma, nationalism, ethnicity, and
hybridity in Asian American cultural critique. Essays that consider these
genealogies and/or question the usefulness of theories derived from
colonial and postcolonial discourse are especially welcome. Also of
interest would be specific author, period, regional, national, and textual

Cambridge Scholars Press has contacted me and would like me to submit a book proposal on my proposed Society for the Study of American Women Writers panel titled "Popular Nineteenth-Century Women Writers and the Literary Marketplace." Though I can only accept four papers for the conference, I need about twelve to fifteen papers for the book. I would like to get the book proposal out before the end of this year; therefore, please note the deadline listed below. The focus of the book will be on the American marketplace and how women writers dealt with their editors ("gentlemen publishers"). In other words, how did the woman writer's relationship with the publisher influence or change her work?
