Deadline extended:

"S(e)oul to Soul: The novels of Susan Choi and the Politics of
Representation" (10/15/05; 3/22-26/06)

We are seeking a third presenter for a panel on the work of Susan
Choi, the author of The Foreign Student (1998) and of American Woman
(2003) for the Association of Asian American Studies Conference
"Bodies, Communities, Regions" that will be held in Atlanta March
22-26, 2006. Our presentations focus on
how the novels stage dominant narrative and generic conventions that
govern US literary narratives about race (for example, social realist
fiction by black and Asian authors and the Southern tradition of
Faulkner and O'Connor) and on the novels' representation of left and
radical politics in relation to the construction of Asian American
political subjectivities and communities. We are seeking a third paper
on Choi that will complement ours.

Please submit at 250 word abstract of your project, and a 2 page CV to
Daniel Y. Kim at Daniel_Kim_at_brown.edu and to Theresa M. Tensuan at
ttensuan_at_haverford.edu by October 15, 2005.
