Unfortunately and due to unforeseen circumstances, this Noon Lecture has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule this event for the 2020-21 academic year.

My paper begins by reflecting upon work by Li Kotomi (1989-), a Taiwanese author writing in Japanese about love between women and referencing both Japanese lesbian fiction and the iconic Taiwanese lesbian writer Qiu Miaojin (1969-1995). From Japanese and Taiwanese queer fiction, I then pivot to queer Asian American writing such as that by Vietnamese American writer Ocean Vuong (1988-), who uses Qiu’s lines to open his book On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous (2019). Through these texts, I address how “queer” figures into discourses of ekkyō bungaku (border-crossing literature), tongzhi literary tradition, and Asian American writing.
