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.
