David Wong Louie Memorial Conference

November 15 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm PST

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 15
10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
UCLA ROYCE HALL 314

Internationally recognized as a literary pioneer in Chinese-American writing in several genres— novel, short story, and personal essay—Louie forged a powerfully eloquent voice that mapped with deep sensitivity and darkly comic wit the trials and hard-won insights born of inhabiting and navigating the difficult and often invisible spaces between white America and Chinese America. This conference will commemorate David Wong Louie’s writing and teaching legacy by bringing together scholars, writers, and students that were and continue to be influenced and inspired by Louie’s work.
