Association for Asian Studies 2013 - CALL FOR PAPERS<
Panel Proposal on The Atomic Age: Power, Memory and Identity
This panel evaluates nuclear politics and disaster in East Asia from the perspective of cultural memory and in relation to questions of race, gender, and social marginality. What does it mean for nuclear disasters such as Fukushima and Hiroshima to invoke a transnational memory politics? How do issues of marginalization, appropriation, and social justice emerge within cultural memory of nuclear disaster? What might the lens of cultural memory offer for understanding institutional and public response to 3/11 and the future of nuclear politics?
This interdisciplinary panel invites papers from the social sciences, literature and cultural studies, gender studies, art and visual studies, and journalism. Graduate student submissions are particularly welcome.
Please send proposals to Vivian Shaw, firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, July 16, 2012. Your proposal should include an abstract of 250 words and bio. Questions in advance of the proposal deadline are also welcome.
