DESCRIPTION

Is there a "Southeast Asian novel" and is it a genre of its own, distinct from the "Asian novel"? What is and isn't "Asian" or "Southeast Asian" about these novels? How useful are these labels?

This is a pre-recorded session, and will be available on video-on-demand replay.

This programme is co-presented with Sing Lit Station, featuring writers who are part of the WrICE digital residency.
