Signs. Spoken. Memory. Theresa Hak Kyung Cha’s Dictee

June 29 - July 6, 2022
Wednesdays, 5:30-7:30 (two sessions)
online via Zoom


This seminar is for BIPOC participants only

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of this seminal publication, we will study Theresa Hak Kyung Cha’s Dictee along with some of its academic critique. This work in many ways defies categorization–with its mixture of French and English, text and images, and the poetic and political. Though it has been described variously as an autobiography, a postcolonial text and an avant-garde, experimental work, it still remains largely inscrutable. Through academic critique and discussion, we will seek to unearth some of its many layers and better understand its contribution to the Asian American literary canon.
