The Asia Pacific Americas Research Cluster (APARC) and the Pacific Islands Research Cluster present:

Spatial Imaginaries and Critical Geographies Across the Pacific:
A Graduate Student Conference

Saturday, February 27, 2010 / 9AM – 5 PM / Humanities 210

The Asia-Pacific-Americas Research Cluster (APARC), in collaboration with the Pacific Islands Research Cluster, hosts its fifth annual graduate student conference, engaging graduate students in a dialogue on the historical production of space and place across Asia Pacific America. We examine these sites in the context of global capital, diasporic and transnational flows of people, commodities, and ideas, dominant and emergent cultures, and past and present counter-hegemonic struggles.  There will be a conversation with Chamoru poet and scholar, Craig Santos Perez, and a keynote by Hsuan Hsu.

Hsuan L. Hsu is Assistant Professor of English at UC Davis. He works on 19th- and 20th-century U.S. literature, Asian American Literature, cultural geography, visual culture, comparative racialization, and theories of globalization. His forthcoming book, Geography and the Production of Space in Nineteenth-Century American Literature (Cambridge), examines the representation of spatial scales in authors such as Charles Brockden Brown, Herman Melville, Henry James, Sarah Orne Jewett, and Sui Sin Far.

Readings and further information available from
Co-sponsored by the Department of History, the Department of Literature, the Department of Anthropology, and the Committee on Affirmative Action and Diversity.
