Worlding the Sinophone: New Directions after a Decade
A special session. Presiding: Lily Wong, American Univ.
Speakers: Howard Chiang, Univ. of Warwick; Tzu-Hui Celina Hung, New York Univ. in Shanghai; Alvin K. Wong, Yonsei Univ.; Lily Wong
Respondent: Carlos Rojas, Duke Univ.
In 2007, Shu-mei Shih defined Sinophone as Sinitic-language cultures outside of China or on the margins of Chineseness, forming emergent affinities with such fields as postcolonial studies, ethnic studies, and queer theory. To commemorate a decade of rich developments in the field, panelists discuss new directions in which Sinophone studies can expand across different paradigms.
