AWC #2

The Asian Women Carnival is going into its second edition, this time hosted by [info]oyceter. The theme for this edition is Inter/intra/transnationality (or: "hyphenates and sourcelanders and diasporas and being a minority Asian in a majority Asian country and majority Asian countries and minority Asian countries and third culture kids and thoughts about being refugees, immigrants, expats, nth generation, FOBs* (* I use this as someone who is proud to be a FOB and dislikes any mockery of fobbishness. Also, if you aren't one, don't use it.), about generational gaps and cultural expectations and growing up in one place and then another and speaking one language at home and one outside and and and."), for which the deadline is June 1st.

You can still find the first edition, hosted by[livejournal.com profile] ciderpress here.

Although I'll have you, internets, know that "here" I/we are Adjectival Dutch People, none of that "hyphenated" stuff. *g*
