Elizabeth Liang ’92, who graduated from Wesleyan with a B.A. in English literature, is the author of two recently-published essays.
Her essay, “Transforming Three Sisters, A Hapa Family in Chekov’s Modern Classic,” was included in the academic journal Asian American Literature: Discourses and Pedagogies published by San Jose State University. It’s published online here.
Another of her essays, “Checked Baggage: Writing Unpacked,” is in the anthology Writing Out of Limbo: International Childhoods, Global Nomads, and Third Culture Kids published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. Morten Ender, professor of sociology at the United States Military Academy at West Point, said of Writing Out of Limbo that “The selections here, varied as they are, share the quiet, profound, and rich experiences of people writing on the most innocent years, transcendent of cultural boundaries. Reading this book is a travel across the globe with an impressive group of worldly citizens.”
Liang is an actress, writer, and producer who co-hosts the podcast Hapa Happy Hour.
