Dr. Roh will be teaching English 5830: After Immigration: New Genres in Asian American Fiction this Fall semester:
This course explores contemporary Asian American literature as it moves beyond the classic immigration narrative and delves into genre fiction. How does the Asian American subject transform as it moves from detective fiction, culinary memoir, historical fiction, magical realism, graphic novel, and science fiction? Does it still qualify as "Asian American" literature, or does it require redefining? We will discuss the origins of Asian American literature, its present state, and speculative futures.
