Hando No Kuzushi

A martial arts term, Hando No Kuzushi denotes the unsettling of balance through reaction. This is what we are about. We are open to submissions of fiction (up to 5,000 words) and poetry. Our goal is to advance the narrative of the Asian American experience. Got a story about being the only Asian kid in town? Great. How about a story told through the perspective of an Ashida Kim villain? Even better.

For a better idea of what we're looking for, please visit us at hnkuzushi.blogspot.com. Submissions should be sent in the body of the email, and the word "Submission" should appear in the title.

Please contact us at Quinata.Delgado@gmail.com with any questions.

Center for Biographical Research

In preparation for a special issue of Biography in 2012, to be co-edited by Gillian Whitlock and G. Thomas Couser, we are issuing a call for abstracts for papers dealing with some aspect of the post human, as it has been widely discussed recently. The editors will select from the abstracts, and the chosen contributors will then be invited to a symposium in Honolulu in late August of 2011, when the participants will share more detailed versions of their work, receive comments for the other contributors, and together discuss the focus of the entire collection. Contributors will then prepare revised full versions of their papers, which will be edited in the Fall of 2011. The result will be the Winter 2012 issue of Biography.
