  • Transpacific Overtures: An Introduction
    • Abstract: We must strive, in the face of the here and now’s totalizing rendering of reality, to think and feel a then and there. Theatergoers who took their seats in the Winter Garden Theatre on January 11, 1976, to watch the premiere of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s musical Pacific Overtures found themselves in the dawn of a new era, plunged into the geopolitics of an earlier Asian-Pacific arena.1 The musical dramatizes Commodore Matthew Perry’s mission in 1853 to open trade relations with isolationist Japan, the closed “Floating World,” through good old-fashioned gunboat diplomacy. Constructed as metatheater to reframe this transpacific encounter of how the West forcibly opened the East, Pacific Overtures ... Read More

  • Beasts from the Deep
    • Abstract: Why do so many monsters ply the deep waters of the Pacific? The Pacific has been a breeding ground for all kinds of fictional beasts bearing apocalyptic significance, from Moby Dick to Godzilla. While Cold War–era monster movies spoke to historically specific anxieties around nuclearization, imperialism, and containment, spectacle-driven summer blockbusters from the early 2010s—specifically Peter Berg’s Battleship (2012), Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim (2013), and Gareth Edwards’s remake of Godzilla (2014)—revisit these monster-movie tropes not only to reconsider such issues in a twenty-first-century context but to overcome them with future promises of transpacific partnership between the United States and ...

  • Whitewashing Yellow Futures in Ex Machina, Cloud Atlas, and Advantageous:
           Gender, Labor, and Technology in Sci-fi Film
    • Abstract: As the spate of online chatter about the whitewashing of Asian characters in the films Ghost in the Shell and Doctor Strange reached its peak in 2016, the discussion recalled similar outrage over other examples of Asian characters being transformed into white ones.1 Examples include bio-pics such as Lords of Dogtown (2005), 21 (2008), and Extraordinary Measures (2010) and cartoon adaptations such as Avatar: The Last Airbender (2010). This last example spawned a popular website that coined the term “racebending” to describe a whole host of racially egregious representations including highly stereotyped and yellowface performance. Merging multiple phenomena under the banner of racebending helps to ... Read More

  • Ethnic Platforms and the Failure of Techno-Futurity
    • Abstract: One warm evening in Ho Chi Minh City, about two dozen people were crowded into a corporate boardroom in the city’s flickering downtown. In this glassy box, high above the dusty sidewalks and chugging motorbikes, those in attendance were dressed in pressed slacks and button-down shirts. We gathered around a large wooden table, at the head of which was Dat, a Vietnamese American entrepreneur from California.1 He was in his late thirties with a scattering of gray hair framing his temples. Like many of the other people in the room, he came to Vietnam to pursue the economic opportunities the country had to offer. As we each took our turn to introduce ourselves, the accents revealed a wide geographical span: ... Read More

  • Battle Hymn of the Afropolitan: Sino-African Futures in Ghana Must Go and
           Americanah
    • Abstract: Asian American characters and China references consistently and frequently appear in recent novels by so-called “Afropolitan” writers like Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Sefi Atta, NoViolet Bulawayo, Teju Cole, and Taiye Selasi.1 These appearances are unexpected because the concerns of these novels seem to have nothing to do with Asian America or China, but instead with the historical circumstances of Afropolitan identity: that is, the identity of a group constituted by the 1.5- and second-generation children of Africans who emigrated to the West—mostly the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States—after 1960, a group whose members, moreover, tend to be highly educated and professionally successful, live ...

  • Ecologies of Entanglement in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch
    • Abstract: Where do the gone things go? Kamilo Beach, located on the southeast coast of Hawai’i, has historically been a place to find things; the fifteen-hundred-foot shore, whose name means “the twisting of ocean currents,”2 is a site where indigenous peoples used to collect logs to carve into canoes. In recent years, Kamilo Beach has become littered with colorful manmade debris, 90 percent of it plastic. It is also the site excavated in a June 2014 Geological Society of America paper that documents the discovery of plastiglomerates, or “a new ‘stone’ formed through intermingling of melted plastic, beach sediment, basaltic lava fragments, and organic debris.”3 This technoscientific rock formation, which the ...

  • Postscript: On Transpacific Futurities
    • Abstract: In 2001, just weeks before 9/11, a poorly equipped fishing boat, attempting to make the treacherous crossing from Indonesia to Australia, sank with its 433 passengers. A passing Norwegian container ship rescued the mostly Afghan refugees and, overburdened with sick and injured people, headed to the closest Australian port at tiny Christmas Island. The Australian government led by then–Prime Minister John Howard refused to allow them to enter the port and, in an unprecedented military response, sent the navy to intercept. Borrowing from the 1990s U.S. refugee detention playbook on Guantánamo Bay, a hasty deal was made by the Howard government with the tiny Pacific island nation of Nauru, where the unlucky ...

  • Playing with the Big Boys: Basketball, American Imperialism, and Subaltern
           Discourse in the Philippines by Lou Antolihao (review)
    • Abstract: In 2005, shortly before the Southeast Asian Games commenced in Manila, a survey among Filipinos revealed that 44 percent of the respondents expected a Philippine victory in the basketball events. The respondents, who had been questioned about which disciplines the Philippine team would most likely win, thus heavily focused on an event that was not even scheduled to take place at the Games (11). This anecdote attests to the strong interest basketball enjoys in the archipelago, despite the fact that the average body size of Filipinos can be seen as disadvantageous for scoring points. Lou Antolihao, a sociologist at the National University of Singapore, addresses the role of basketball in Philippine ... Read More

  • The Racial Mundane: Asian American Performance and the Embodied Everyday
           by Ju Yon Kim (review)
    • Abstract: In the late 1800s, the California State Senate feared that the low cost of feeding Chinese laborers would make it difficult for white laborers to compete. Chinese laborers could sustain themselves on a cheap diet of rice, simple vegetables, and fish, while white workers needed meat and bread. Chinese laborers provided an excellent source of cheap labor, but this frugality would threaten the national body politic. In The Racial Mundane: Asian American Performance and the Embodied Everyday, Ju Yon Kim examines how the everyday behaviors and habits of Asian Americans like eating were used to distinguish this population but also allow for its precarious inclusion. Kim argues that this contradictory racial ... Read More

  • Claiming Place: On the Agency of Hmong Women ed. by Chia Youyee Vang,
           Faith Nibbs, Ma Vang (review)
    • Abstract: Claiming Place: On the Agency of Hmong Women dives headfirst into rectifying the classic problem of the burden of representation—that Hmong women compose a minority population that is often forgotten or overlooked, and that when we do hear about them, their stories are inevitably limited to a set of reductive portrayals. Indeed, the book is wholly preoccupied with underrepresentation, or the concern that single images of Hmong women as rendered in photographs, scholarship, literature, and media will come to stand in for all Hmong women. Given that a meaningful solution to these problems is to populate the landscape with a plenitude of powerful scholarship that serves to diversify the available voices and ... Read More

  • Eugenic Feminism: Reproductive Nationalism in the United States and India
           by Asha Nadkarni (review)
    • Abstract: As a conceptual framework and theoretical approach, transnational feminism has provided Asian American studies a welcome method by which to complicate any number of critical givens in the field: who counts as its subjects, what spaces fall under its purview, how social formations come into existence and how transformations in them take place, and how to rethink what we understand to be political resistance, subjection, and agency. And yet, like so many such critical discursive concepts, on its own and without being anchored in the particular histories and lifeworlds of women, transnational feminism is a rubric that can feel slippery and abstract, despite its very aim to the contrary. In other words, as a ... Read More
