CFP Panel on East Asian literature in a transnational framework for AAS 2016 Seattle

My name is Susanna Lim (Univ. Oregon) I am looking for presenters, a discussant, and chair for a panel on East Asian literature in a transnational framework for the AAS 2016 conference in Seattle.

I'm a faculty of literature at the University of Oregon, and my focus will be a comparative reading of South Korean novelist Park Kyoung-ni's Land (Toji) and Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace. The second presenter, Roy Chan, also from Univ. Oregon, focuses on modern Chinese literature in relation to Russian literature (Ba Jin).
