deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

By recruiting minority writers and teaching them to "write what you know" and "find your voice," MFA programs have generated landmark works of fiction that perform and celebrate marginalized racial and ethnic identities. However, critics argue that the institution of Creative Writing and its aesthetic values are culturally specific and may fetishize racial and ethnic difference for white audiences. Please submit abstracts of no more than 300 words about authors or texts that exemplify the intersection of—or friction between—MFA aesthetics and race/ethnicity.

This panel will be part of the 48th annual convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association in Baltimore, MD (March 23-26 2017).

The David Henry Hwang Society was founded in 2016 at the Comparative Drama Conference with the goal of promoting scholarly examination of Hwang’s theatrical works. Since his first breakout play, FOB, in 1980, David Henry Hwang has proven the most significant and prolific Asian American playwright to date.  From the global phenomenon of M. Butterfly and more recent successes with Yellow Face and Chinglish, Hwang has staged stories of the Asian American experience and explored questions of race, culture, and identity.
