Description: Panelists seek to add Southeast Asian perspectives to the transnational conversations on the oceanic, a critical framework that challenges national and land-based notions of literary and cultural studies. Oceanic imaginaries and methodologies are vital undercurrents in the study of Southeast Asian and Southeast Asian diasporic texts. This body of texts offers complex aesthetics and poetics of water bodies, water worlds, and postcolonial cultures.
