    Please join us for this special session!

    Thursday, 5 January

    54. Uncharting Boundaries: Southeast Asia and Its Diasporas

    1:45–3:00 p.m., 404, Philadelphia Marriott

    A special session

    Presiding: Joanne Leow, Univ. of Saskatchewan; Cheryl Narumi Naruse, Univ. of Dayton

    Speakers: Arnika Fuhrmann, Cornell Univ.; Tzu-Hui Celina Hung, New York Univ. in Shanghai; Sheela Jane Menon, Univ. of Texas, Austin; Vinh Nguyen, Renison University Coll.; Martin J. Ponce, Ohio State Univ., Columbus; Sylvia Tiwon, Univ. of California, Berkeley

    Panelists examine the literary and cultural boundary conditions of Southeast Asia and its diasporas. Focusing on the archipelagic, multilingual, multireligious, and multiethnic region’s literary and cultural productions as alternative imaginaries gives us new ways to consider the transnational, the global, and the inter-imperial.

     

    Please share any other Southeast Asia sessions or papers you may know about!
