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

Issue 15: Intimacy

In recent years, scholars from a broad range of disciplines have engaged the issue of intimacy. From these various efforts, at least one fact is clear: There is not one intimacy, but many. How do we describe these intimacies, and what complicates our descriptions? Intimacy is not simply synonymous with love, but it is different from friendship, and often quite different from sex. Or is it? Moreover, once we have discovered what intimacy is, where do we find it: in communities and nations, between or among friends, between or among lovers? How is intimacy negotiated and produced, maintained, or, often, lost?

"non-existential" literature. In other words, feel free to submit
Foucauldian readings of Camus or Sartrean readings of Pynchon.
