Session Chair: 
Brian Reed, University of Washington
Session 3: Saturday 8:15 am – 9:45 am
Miller Hall 131
Topic Area: 


  1. Jane Wong, Western Washington University
    This paper explores the interdisciplinary approaches of two new Asian Canadian poets who revisit memory and familial migration through speculative and spectral forms.
  2. E. J. Koh, University of Washington
    Don Mee Choi's Hardly War is a radical hybrid of poetry and memoir, of images and librettos that exhume the injustices of propaganda, war, and dislocation. As a diasporic poet and translator, Choi's dramatic work disobeys history by stringing together the faintly remembered, imagined, and discarded out of a divided land in perpetual war.
