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.

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?
