Forgiveness and Compassion from a Jewish Perspective
This year’s AAR-WR theme is centered around the timely - and timeless - topics of “Grace, Mercy, and Atonement.” We are asked to consider what different religious groups have to say about forgiveness, compassion, and other responses to suffering, perhaps in terms of ritual or sacred activities or processes, or in terms of personal, communal, and organizational responses.
This proposed "Just-in-time" session at the 2022 MLA Convention in Washington, DC (January 6-9) seeks to situate recent amplifications in anti-Asian violence and rhetoric (as well as the resistance to name them as such) within the context of Asian American literary and cultural production. As the theme of the MLA convention is Multilingualism, this session invites papers on Asian American texts, media and experience that privilege embodied affect or memory as language itself.
