Between worlds : women writers of Chinese ancestry by Amy Ling( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De auteur concentreert zich op leven en werk van Amerikaanse schrijfsters van Chinese afkomst. Ze heeft daarbij vooral aandacht voor de grensoverschrijdingen tussen China en de Verenigde Staten, en dit zowel in de biografieën als in het literaire werk van deze schrijfsters. Deze studie vult een belangrijke lacune aan in de receptie van de Aziatisch-Amerikaanse literatuur

Yellow light : the flowering of Asian American arts( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yellow Light - a collection in which Amy Ling brings together the thoughts and creative projects of forty world-renowned and newly emerging Asian American artists - is the first book to present the words behind the words, images, and sounds of Asian American cultural production. Coming from the broad spectrum of ethnicities that make up Asian America, these artists not only provide a provocative cultural record and an indispensable anthology of creative expression, but also offer a rare glimpse of the inspirations and aspirations behind their art. Along with artists' candid discussions of their work through personal essays, interviews, and short biographies, Yellow Light also gathers in one volume a stunning array of fiction, poetry, drama, and music."--Jacket

Crossings by Hua Chuang( Book )

2 editions published between 1986 and 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was first published in America in 1968, Chuang Hua's evocative novel "Crossings" was completely unheralded and quickly went out of print. Years later it would be widely recognized as the first modernist novel to address the Asian-American experience, its deeply imagistic prose--marked by spatial and temporal leaps, an unconventional syntax, and unanticipated shifts in plot--as haunting as the writing of Jane Bowles
Literature. CUNY Panel Rethinking the Disciplines. Women in the Curriculum Series by Joan E Hartman( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of six essays examines the ways in which literature, as a discipline, reflects ongoing scholarship on gender, race, ethnicity, social class, and sexual orientation. In "Rethinking the Discipline of Literature: Gender," Joan E. Hartman presents the results of a Modern Language Association survey that highlights the prominence of feminist approaches to literature. In "Latin American Literature," Daisy Cocco de Filippis addresses the marginalized place of Latin American women writers in the curriculum. In "Medieval Studies," Steven F. Kruger notes that the new scholarship enriches and broadens contemporary views of medieval culture. In "Eighteenth-Century Studies," Sally O'Driscoll discusses the effects of queer theory on the field, while in "The Impact of Asian-American Literature," Amy Ling reviews the growing but limited impact of Asian-American literature on English departments. In "Caribbean Literature," Barbara J. Webb notes the numerous parallels between recent developments in Caribbean and African-American literature and discusses the cross-cultural aspects of the genre. Each essay contains references. (MDM)
