Co-edited with Terese Guinsatao Monberg and K. Hyoejin Yoon and published with Parlor Press. 

Building a Community, Having a Home is an edited collection supported by the NCTE-funded Writing and Working for Change project that presents a collective history of the CCCC Asian/Asian American Caucus. With contributions from 29 caucus members, the collection includes essays on feminist institutional historiography and archival research, Asian rhetoric, and World Englishes alongside several stories of emergence in the discipline and interviews with founding members. These larger chapters are interspersed with shorter “Circulation Essays,” which take up questions and concerns that are raised in the chapters in various ways. Through a collective voice, Building a Community, Having a Home not only recounts a history of Asian/Asian American participation in NCTE, but it also raises questions about the relationship between the writing of history and the possibilities for community.
