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


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.

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.
