  • Searching for Mirror Books for Young Asian/Asian-American Children with
           Disabilities

    • Authors: Sohyun Meacham et al.
      Abstract: America’s changing demographics and the increasing number of children with disabilities call for appropriate representations of race/ethnicity and disabilities in materials (e.g., books) for inclusive classrooms. This study analyzed how Asian/Asian-American (A/AA) people with disabilities had been portrayed in picture books with the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature (APAAL) or the Schneider Family Award (SFA). We addressed the intersectionality of Asian racial cultures and disabilities, focusing on the picture books with these awards, due to the potential impact of these portrayals on children. We used 35 picture books with the APAAL from 2001 to 2020 and 18 with the SFA from 2004 to 2020 as the data for our systematic content analysis. The results showed that the number of characters with disabilities were disproportionately represented in the APAAL picture books compared to the general population of A/AA people with disabilities in the U. S. More mirror books with A/AA child characters with disabilities are needed for the U. S. early childhood classrooms.

  • Wages of Resistance: A Consideration of Time in Jessica Hagedorn’s
           Dogeaters

    • Authors: Laura A. Wright
      Abstract: Using the formal elements of Dogeaters, Jessica Hagedorn offers a pointed critique of class. Bringing Karl Marx’s discussion of time from Capital into conversation with Gèrard Genette’s narratological essay “Order, Duration and Frequency” I argue that Hagedorn’s depiction of time deliberately undermines the systems of power in the novel. Drawing particularly on Genette’s conceptualization of duration and frequency, I examine Hagedorn’s depictions of men and women at work, specifically the characters of Romeo Rosales and Trinidad Gamboa. Romeo and Trinidad are seldom mentioned in criticism of Hagedorn’s text, but these characters demonstrate Hagedorn’s attention to the working-class and serve to critique capitalism in the Philippines. Integrating Marx’s discussion of time as a measure of value or exploitation, I consider the larger ramifications for these characterizations.

  • Orientalism Restated in the Era of COVID-19

    • Authors: Joey Kim
      Abstract: This essay bridges a gap between an analysis of anti-Asian targeting and an analysis of Orientalism. Because histories of Orientalism and anti-Asian targeting pre-date the current moment, I demonstrate the centrality of Orientalism to the evolution of xenophobic language and sentiment in U.S.-foreign historical relations. I recount instances of anti-Asian, xenophobic, and “Yellow-Peril” rhetoric in the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic. In doing so, I examine the racialization of COVID-19 as a trope of orientalism. This racialization, I argue, places the Asian-presenting body in a state of heightened visibility, precarity, and susceptibility to plunder. The newfound precarity of the Asian body has been redefined in terms of the epidemiology of COVID-19 and illustrates how today’s Orientalism has been reactivated within the phenomenological space of the human body.

  • I Didn't Know Aiiieeeee, But It Knew Me

    • Authors: Adrienne Su
      Abstract: "I Didn't Know Aiiieeeee, But It Knew Me" is a poem that reflects on the influence of both the anthology and the word Aiiieeeee on the writer's development. It uses an adaptation of the ghazal to explore both the continuities and discontinuities of becoming a writer when Asian-American literature was mostly inaccessible.
