Variously depicted as an idealized counter-public, an insulated subculture, or a utopian social formation, no concept is, arguably, as central or fraught as community in Asian Canadian literary culture. Taking as its starting point the post-structural critique of community, this talk seeks to historicize this concept.

Keynote Speaker: Christopher Lee, Associate Professor, Department of English, University of British Columbia Director, Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies Program.

With financial support from the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences Aid for Interdisciplinary Sessions Fund.
