Negotiating Gender: New Perspectives on Asian American Literary Studies

This proposed collection of essays intends to tackle a fundamental issue in
Asian American literary studies—the gender gap, i.e. a fission roughly
along gender lines in Asian American thinking and articulation about ethnic
identity. Ever since the early 1970s, Asian American feminists and
nationalists have been engaged in a heated exchange on the roles of gender,
race, and culture in the formation of an Asian American identity, with
gender being the defining element. While the debate has invigorated Asian
American critical discourse, the prolonged warring atmosphere has also
divided Asian American community.

Submissions are invited for a collection of essays on women,
representation and space in 19th and 20th century literature. While the
main focus of the volume is women's metaphorical appropriation of public
and private spaces since the beginning of the 19th century until today,
the book will also pay particular attention to the way women writers
have interrogated and deconstructed the binary divide between public and
private space. Some possible topics include:

-- Public role of domestic settings, and their implications for women.

-- Literary configurations of interstitial or liminal spaces where the
separation between private and public sphere is suspended.

Original CFP below.

National Women's Studies Association Journal (NWSA Journal)
Special Issue on Aging, Ageism, and Old Age, Spring 2006

Feminist theorists of old age, such as Baba Copper, Barbara Macdonald,
Cynthia Rich, and Margaret Cruikshank, have charged that women's studies
and the feminist movement have, in large part, ignored the issue of aging.
In a field in which so many other aspects of body-based identity are
recognized, debated, de- and re-constructed, and challenged, the subject of
old age remains relatively unexamined and untheorized - nearly taboo.
