CFP: Falling Leaves: Identities, Subjectivities, Mobilities, and the Chinese in Southeast Asia

Calls for Submissions

The editors of a forthcoming collection invite chapter proposals that examine the identity/subjectivity of ethnic Chinese communities in Southeast Asia. Submissions are due by July 31, 2022.

This edited volume aims to explore what it might mean to relocate scholarly discussions of ethnic Chinese minority culture outside the exclusive nexus of East-West models and into one that is focused on Asia. This volume aims to rethink dominant models in Postcolonial and Diaspora Studies that foregrounds inter-Asia referencing as it deprivileges Western theoretical models through critical interpretations of literature, film, performance, and other cultural productions by the diasporic/ethnic Chinese in Southeast Asia.

The editors invite essay proposals on ethnic Chinese communities in Southeast Asia, but are particularly interested in those focused on Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Indonesia, Brunei, Cambodia, and Timor-Leste. Of particular interest are chapters that will challenge or interrogate dominant concepts developed in Postcolonial and Diaspora Studies as it proposes new and dynamic interpretations of literary, cinematic, and other cultural texts.

Brill has expressed interest in this volume, and it will be considered to be part of the “Overseas Chinese” book series.
