Tracking Changes
Sueyeun Juliette Lee, Gina Apostol, and Purvi Shah

How does movement—social, political or physical—affect our personal identities and those placed upon us? Sueyeun Juliette Lee, Gina Apostol, and Purvi Shah each address the shifting nature of identity and its relationship with movement in different ways. Sueyeun Juliette Lee’s most recent collection of poetry focuses on Korea and explores how national structures and identities affect human psyches. Gina Apostol’s work explores the affect of both historical events and the written word on her characters. Purvi Shah’s work explores migration as potential and loss.

Sueyeun Juliette Lee grew up 3 miles from the CIA. She is a poet, scholar, and editor. Currently, she lives in Philadelphia where she editsCorollary Press, a chapbook series devoted to multi-ethnic, innovative writing. Her first collection of poems, That Gorgeous Feeling (Coconut Press), is a study of celebrity and the Asian figure in mass media. Her second collection, Underground National (Factory School), explores how national structures and identities affect human psyches, taking Korea as its primary staging ground.

Gina Apostol was born in Manila and lives in New York. She went to college at the University of the Philippines and earned her M.A. in Writing from the Johns Hopkins University. Her first novel, Bibliolepsy, won the 1998 Philippine National Book Award for Fiction. She just completed her third novel, The Revolution According to Raymundo Mata, a comic historical novel-in-footnotes about the Philippine war for independence against Spain and America in 1896.

Purvi Shah is the author of Terrain Tracks (New Rivers Press 2006), which won a Many Voices Project prize. Her debut poetry collection, recognized across Asian American and women’s communities, explores migration as potential and loss. She is preoccupied with the many facets of love, including its temporality and mathematics, concepts she explores in her current poetry project, Love Time(s).
