The completely optional theme for the 2nd Asian Women Blog Carnival is....

Inter/intra/transnationality

I particularly want to encourage Central and Near Asian women to post, and to also note that I'd love as many Asian women's voices as possible, for all definitions of "Asian" and of "women."

The theme came from some noodling here and here, and I really apologize for the title! I figure it is probably pithier than "hyphenates and sourcelanders and diasporas and being a minority Asian in a majority Asian country and majority Asian countries and minority Asian countries and third culture kids and thoughts about being refugees, immigrants, expats, nth generation, FOBs*, about generational gaps and cultural expectations and growing up in one place and then another and speaking one language at home and one outside and and and."

Submissions due 1 June your local time, and the issue will go up a few days after.

ETA: Future hosts still needed! Please contact [personal profile] ciderpress if you'd like to host.


* I use this as someone who is proud to be a FOB and dislikes any mockery of fobbishness. Also, if you aren't one, don't use it.

Here's a word I use for all of that (not specific to asians but):

Diasporado.

I love the hyphenates vs. sourcelanders terminology because being hyphenate makes me feel like a robot! And sourcelanders are like something from a high fantasy novel. <3

The majority of fantasy novels in English are written by white people who are sourcelanders, so they wouldn't've had to think about it? A fantasy novel about hyphenates and sourcelanders would be super super interesting. I must think about this!

Perdido Street Station,/i>? Kinda...? I mean, Mieville deals with some of those issues in the Cactacae community, but it's not what the book is about.

Can't remember if I'd submitted something like this. it's basically langauge, the fact that I grew up with a disconnect, and can't talk to my grandparents anymore and have to get stories from them in second hand. :| touches on my cousins' being white Bananas in a different way too. Um.

I's like to submit these two entries from Shuflies. She's an American-born Taiwanese woman living in Taipei with her American husband (who doesn't have Asian ancestry), whose perspectives can be fascinating. These two posts are about Asian fetishes among white men, minding your own business, and the fact that sometimes two people date because they love each other, period. (But that's a gross oversimplification, and her original posts are more nuanced and more interesting.)

Hi, I'm evilprodigy on LJ and have a Dreamwidth account solely for commenting on DW feed posts that show up on my flist. :D

I have a question as to the Blog Carnival. I'm half-Korean, half-white, and was thinking of making a post either on the personal issues of racism and Orientalism in the complicated relationship between my mother and father as a thing that became more of an issue as I grew up, or on the experience of being disbelieved or considered "inauthentic" by fully white people. But I'm not certain if I'm an appropriate voice in this carnival, being as it's for PoC, and while I self-identify as Korean I would not like to discount the privilege of having a white first and last name and being able to pass in a number of settings.

I'd love to participate, but I don't want to barge in on anything that doesn't and shouldn't include me, basically. :) What's the policy on inbetweeners like me and our experiences with Asianness and racism?

Thank you. :)

It's called Leaving For Nanyang. I actually wrote this for the foc_u event... but I think the story is also appropriate for the Carnival.

Leaving For Nanyang:

I wrote this in the perspective of my paternal grandmother who told me this story in Hokkien... a dialect/language my generation found hard to converse in.

Hi, I sent you a PM about this but I dunno if you got it.

I have this post up already, which I thought I'd submit for the Carnival. I don't know if you think it's appropriate, though?

I have another post in the works, which may be late (cos I'm working on issues related to the linked post!). Is that ok?
