"I, too, having lost faith / in language, have placed my faith in language" (Terrance Hayes, "Snow for Wallace Stevens")

As Terrance Hayes exemplifies in his portrayal of Wallace Stevens’ racism, language underpins both care-full and care-less representations. As an interdependent system that necessarily implicates and involves us all, language demands our thoughtful investigation when it comes to how we might communicate care.

From Kabuliwala to the Fall of Kabul: Afghanistan in Popular Imagination

Friday, September 24, 2021 - 10:50am
University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh

Tuesday, October 5, 2021

With the recent fall of Kabul, Afghanistan has resurfaced in political and critical discourses. The “Graveyard of Empires” as it is known, the popular imagination of the country has been a source to draw courage from for subalterns the world over. Its crucial geopolitical location has often made it a site for global scuffles of major powers as we witnessed in Rudyard Kipling's Kim and its backdrop of the Great Game. We have also often seen how Hollywood’s Orientalist lenses transformed the country into a site for fulfilment of neocolonial American desires—Rambo vanquishing the Soviets almost single-handedly in the background of the Cold War.

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?

Thursday, September 30, 2021

In recent years there has been increased attention to conversations concerning consent, sexual violence, and rape. The stories of survivors have been an important tool for informing the public about these issues and providing healing. First-hand nonfiction accounts of sexual violence like A Woman in Berlin, Know My Name, and Willow Weep for Me have helped to destigmatize conversations about rape and sexual assault and problematized mainstream understandings of these concepts. Novels like The Handmaid’s Tale have also been able to question what sex and pleasure could look like within a rape culture.

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

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”.
