Aims & Scope
The mission of Asian American Literature: Discourses & Pedagogies is to provide accessible peer-reviewed essays to teachers and students of Asian American literature so that works of Asian American literature can be understood in their cultural, sociohistorical, and artistic contexts. Mindful that a variety of sources are helpful and even necessary when teaching or learning about literature, we accept work in a range of forms from traditional literary analysis and explication to essays specifically detailing classroom pedagogy in relation to works of Asian American literature.
We seek to make scholarship “accessible” in a variety of ways. First, we do not charge for subscriptions and ensure that our journal is accessible to anyone with internet access, not just to those with access to proprietary databases. Secondly, we encourage submissions that seek to hold to the highest standards of clarity in written English and to avoid unnecessary jargon while still utilizing the great range of theoretical and critical concepts available to contemporary scholars.
