Alienglish:

Eastern Diasporas in Anglo-American Tongues
Sheng-mei Ma
ISBN: 9781604978681

English has long emerged as the lingua franca of globalization but has been somehow estranged in the hands or mouths of aliens, from Joseph Conrad to Chang-rae Lee. Haltingly, their alien characters come to speak in the Anglo-American tongue, yet what emerges is skewed by accents, syntax, body language, and nonstandard contextual references—an uncanny, off-kilter language best described as Alienglish. Alienglish arrays itself on a spectrum from English’s Alien to Alien’s English, from white representations of the Other to aliens’ self-representations. Read More..

Anglophone Literatures in the Asian Diaspora:

Literary Transnationalism and Translingual Migrations
Karen An-hwei Lee
ISBN: 9781604978605

The close textual analysis is also carefully developed, convincing and allows Lee to draw highly insightful and fascinating conclusions. Finally, she situates her work in a wider field that show just how relevant literary scholarship can be to current scholarly debates, as well as to the contemporary world ...

Are We What We Eat?

Food and Identity in Late Twentieth-Century American Ethnic Literature
William R. Dalessio
ISBN: 9781604978018

Over the last forty years, scenes that prominently feature acts of preparing and eating food have filled the pages of novels and memoirs written by American immigrants and their descendants because these writers understand that eating is more than a purely biological function but, instead, works to define who we are in the United States and abroad. This book critically analyzes eight of these pieces of ethnic American literature, which demonstrate the important role that cooking and eating play in the process of identity formation. Read More..
