Connect With Us

If you’re a scholar or teacher of Asian American literature, please join our professional network. Email us at caalsinfo@gmail.com to be added to the CAALS Google group (our email list). Event notices, calls for papers/submissions, other opportunities, and occasional discussion questions are circulated there.

In addition, all are welcome to join our Facebook group to engage with a diverse community about Asian American literature, culture, and arts. The group includes many writers, students, teachers, and fans of Asian American literature and is a great place to learn about new writers and artists.

If you’d like to engage with us more actively, become a member! Membership in the Circle for Asian American Literary Studies (CAALS) is open to scholars, writers, teachers, and students of Asian American literature.

We especially welcome graduate students, untenured scholars, scholars working at teaching-intensive institutions or in alt-ac roles, women-of-color scholars, and others from marginalized backgrounds. We look forward to getting to know you and your work.
