I seek participants for a panel at the MLA International Symposium in Lisbon (July 2019) focusing on transpacific imaginaries between Latin America and Asia. In response to this year’s theme, “Remembering Voices Lost,” this panel examines South-South transpacific imaginaries as a potential space to reveal voices that have been doubly unheard or lost. I invite papers that focus on the late 20thand 21stcenturies and consider any aspect of transpacific imaginaries between Asia and Latin America, Asian Latin American cultural production, Latin American representations of Asia/Asians, theoretical considerations of Latin American orientalisms, hemispheric Asian American studies, self-exoticism, etc. 


Please send abstracts or inquiries to tko@ursinus.eduby September 16, 2018. 

Paper abstracts can be in the language of your choice.
