  • Editor's Preface
    • Abstract: In 2013, national attention converged on the trial of George Zimmerman, the man charged with the shooting death of the unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman's acquittal was met with outrage, and three young activists, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi, trended the hashtag Black Lives Matter. Growing from a social media campaign to a widespread social movement, Black Lives Matter (BLM) has maintained a strong political presence in the months and years that followed, highlighting the wide-scale violence perpetrated against black communities and lives. The locally situated, nationally linked BLM movement has mobilized political action, cultural awakening, and social analysis and relationships ... Read More

  • Renovating Vancouver: Transnational Constructions and Mortgages in Sachiko
           Murakami's Rebuild
    • Abstract: In "Return Home," the final section of her 2011 poetry collection Rebuild, Vancouver poet Sachiko Murakami's poems about the city take on a distinctively personal and autobiographical tenor. Murakami notes in the acknowledgements to Rebuild that the book is dedicated to "the memory of my father, Yorihide Bruce Murakami, who passed away during its completion, and so changed its shape, and mine."1 The final section of Rebuild reexamines many of the collection's themes of living and owning a home in a transnational, capitalist city through a mourning process for the poet's dead father. From the publisher's note on Rebuild, it is clear that the poems in this section are about "the legacy left by Murakami's father, who ... Read More

  • "This Contradictory but Fantastic Thing": Student Networks and Political
           Activism in Cold War Taiwanese/America
    • Abstract: In August 1972, Edward Cheng (鄭德昌)1 left Taiwan to attend the University of Wisconsin, Madison, as a graduate student in nuclear engineering. The campus was awash with student protests against the war in Vietnam. Not long after his arrival, Cheng recalled attending a campus event at which a young Vietnamese man spoke, criticizing the U.S. government's actions in Vietnam. According to Cheng,I just wonder how is it possible, because there was a war going on, and these people are supposed to be the enemies of the US, and how could they come to the US and then talk about how US invaded them' … This is unthinkable if you were in Taiwan. So I think this is probably how democracy and freedom thinking works, to allow ... Read More

  • The Mysterious Case of Suki Kim's The Interpreter
    • Abstract: Like all other arts, the Science of Deduction and Analysis is one which can only be acquired by long and patient study nor is life long enough to allow any mortal to attain the highest possible perfection in it. … Let [the enquirer], on meeting a fellow-mortal, learn at a glance to distinguish the history of the man, and the trade or profession to which he belongs. … By a man's finger nails, by his coat-sleeve, by his boot, by his trouser knees, by the callosities of his forefinger and thumb, by his expression, by his shirt cuffs—by each of these things a man's calling is plainly revealed. That all united should fail to enlighten the competent enquirer in any case is almost inconceivable.She stands out, this slim ... Read More

  • Doing Good in Filipino Diaspora: Philanthropy, Remittances, and Homeland
           Returns
    • Abstract: Filipinos want to partake of "the American Dream," when in fact they are already a constitutive part of that dream.From early twentieth-century colonial benevolence in the Philippines and the geopolitical Cold War origins of the Asian American model minority myth, to the ascendancy of neoliberal logics of more recent decades that underlie a culture of global Filipino migration, good Filipinos—whether in the Philippines, in the United States, in the Middle East, in transit, or in diaspora—have always been a constitutive part of the American dream. In 2004, former Philippine Secretary of Labor and Employment and current Chairperson of the Development Bank of the Philippines Patricia A. Santo Tomas told a reporter ... Read More

  • Freaks and Geeks: On the Provisional Citizenship of Indian American
           Spelling Bee Winners
    • Abstract: The spelling bee has its origins in sixteenth-century Elizabethan schools, but it is, unsurprisingly, in the United States where the bee has taken deep cultural root. The Scripps National Spelling Bee (hereafter "the Scripps") crowned its first champion in 1925 and has been a staple of American orthographical and cultural life since. As the etymologist Allen Walker Read writes, "from its background in schools, through its flowering as a rural entertainment in New England and later as the principal exercise on the frontier, to its revival on the radio—[the bee] forms a necessary chapter in American linguistic history."1 With this long historical arc in mind, it is no great surprise that in the past decade the bee ...

  • #Blacklivesmatter and the State of Asian/America
    • Abstract: Since Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi created the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter after seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin's murder by George Zimmerman in 2012 and Zimmerman's acquittal in Sanford, Florida, #BlackLivesMatter (#BLM) has contributed to activating analysis and movement against antiblack racism at a scale not seen since 1950s and 1960s civil rights, black power, and pan-African movements. Cullors and Darnell Moore's successful #BLM freedom ride to Ferguson, Missouri, to support uprisings against the police killing of eighteen-year-old Mike Brown in 2014, along with #BLM's participation in galvanizing public attention and protest against multiple other police murders of unarmed black women ...

  • Comparison and Coalition in the Age of Black Lives Matter
    • Abstract: Ironically, or perhaps fittingly, I began writing this on November 9, the day after the troubling election night that proved to be a testament to the resilience of white racist fear and entitlement, as well as a shift (in the United States, one that happened much earlier in other places in the world) from the reigning governmentality of neoliberal multiculturalism to neoliberal authoritarianism. In this context, the question that animates this forum—that is, why Black Lives Matter is relevant to Asian American studies and vice versa—is all the more pressing because it seems clear to me that this election result is a backlash against the very real successes of the Black Lives Matter movement.By that movement, I mean ...

  • Insurgency and Asian American Studies in the Time of Black Lives Matter
    • Abstract: Peter Liang has the distinction of being one of approximately a dozen police officers convicted of murder or manslaughter for killing a civilian while on duty since 2005. Liang's victim was Akai Gurley, a black man shot dead after Liang fired his weapon into an empty stairwell of the East New York public housing complex where Gurley lived. A New York Supreme Court justice eventually reduced Liang's charge to criminally negligent homicide and declined to sentence him to serve time in prison. However, the initial charge of second-degree manslaughter could have sent Liang away for fifteen years. Liang was the only NYPD officer convicted in an on-duty shooting in well over a decade; the question of whether he was a ... Read More

  • Toward a Queer Afro-Asian Anti-Imperialism: Black Amerasians and U.S.
           Empire in Asian American Literature
    • Abstract: This brief essay sketches the outlines of a research project instigated in part by #BlackLivesMatter's call to affirm all black lives subjected to state violence. I had been teaching Jessica Hagedorn's Dogeaters (1990), Chang-rae Lee's A Gesture Life (1999), Nora Okja Keller's Fox Girl (2002), and Aimee Phan's We Should Never Meet (2004) for years, but it wasn't until the inescapable centering of black lives—on the streets, on social media, in the classroom, in academic programming—that I began to think seriously about the presence of black Amerasian characters in these narratives: the queer hustler and deejay Joey Sands, the transnational adoptee Sunny Hata, the second-generation sex worker Sookie and pimp ...

  • Affect, Aesthetics, and Afro-Asian Studies
    • Abstract: This JAAS editors' forum on "Asian American Studies in the Age of Black Lives Matter" provides a timely occasion to examine the limitations and possibilities for past and ongoing cross-racial solidarities, and of doing so through an explicitly queer feminist framework. I understand this framing of Afro-Asian solidarity as continuing the unfinished political project of dismantling heteropatriarchal structures of colonialism and racism articulated more than thirty years ago by third world/women of color feminist scholars and activists in the 1980s, perhaps most famously in the edited collection This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color (1981). This framing also issues from several overlapping ... Read More

  • State Violence Is Chronic
    • Abstract: In July 2016, I wrote an essay geared for a general readership on the significance of Black Lives Matter for nonblack people of color.1 I started composing it two days after Jeronimo Yanez, a police officer in the Falcon Heights suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota, shot and killed Philando Castile after pulling him over during a traffic stop. The story had hit home for me because I lived in a neighborhood only a few miles away from where the incident took place. At first, Castile's partner—who had recorded the harrowing scene on her cell phone—had identified the cop involved as "Chinese." In the intervening days before it was revealed that Yanez was, in fact, Latinx, Asian Americans worried that this tragedy would ... Read More

  • Civil Racism: The 1992 Los Angeles Rebellion and the Crisis of Racial
           Burnout by Lynn Mie Itagaki (review)
    • Abstract: Lynn Mie Itagaki's Civil Racism: The 1992 Los Angeles Rebellion and the Crisis of Racial Burnout paints a compelling narrative on the issue of racial civility in the post–civil rights era. Racial civility as a construct has emerged in recent decades, stemming from the belief that the United States has become a postracial society, no longer needing to be regulated by the state. The onus is instead shifted toward individuals, as they must increasingly adhere to cultural values that serve to reinforce racial inequality. Yet, Itagaki argues that dominant groups employ civility problematically as they read people from marginalized backgrounds as inherently uncivil and, consequently, as noncitizens. As a result ...

  • Youth Gangs, Racism, and Schooling: Vietnamese American Youth in a
           Postcolonial Context by Kevin D. Lam (review)
    • Abstract: Kevin D. Lam's Youth Gangs, Racism, and Schooling: Vietnamese American Youth in a Postcolonial Context is a groundbreaking study that critically analyzes the lived experiences of Vietnamese Americans whose adolescent years intersected with gang membership. This work is situated in Southern California during the 1980s and 1990, which were times marked by intense antiyouth legislation and racialized tensions that fueled violence in the public schools and on the streets. Drawing on "liberatory, pedagogical, and transformational notions of youth culture, identity, and education" (10), Lam, who is a 1.5-generation Vietnamese American and a former classroom teacher from Southern California, situates the life experiences ...

  • Drawing New Color Lines: Transnational Asian American Graphic Narratives
           ed. by Monica Chiu (review)
    • Abstract: Monica Chiu's Drawing New Color Lines: Transnational Asian American Graphic Narratives is a welcome contribution to the small but growing body of scholarship on Asian American graphic narratives and comics creators. Despite the increasing visibility of Asian Americans in comics—an article in the December 2011 issue of KoreAm was titled "Why Are There So Many Good Asian American Cartoonists'"—there has not yet been an entire book devoted to the subject. As Chiu notes in her introduction though, this collection is not intended to "fill a gap" in comics studies scholarship, nor is it meant as "a catalog of new Asian American graphic narratives and their scholarly interpretations" (13). Drawing New Color Lines, which ... Read More

  • Alien Capital: Asian Racialization and the Logic of Settler Colonial
           Capitalism by Iyko Day (review)
    • Abstract: Iyko Day's Alien Capital: Asian Racialization and the Logic of Settler Colonial Capitalism is a tour de force, an astounding scholarly achievement that promises to effect significant interventions in Asian American studies and related fields of study such as American studies, critical ethnic studies, settler colonial studies, and Indigenous studies, to name a few. It speaks to and anticipates ongoing theoretical debates reverberating across multiple disciplines that attend to issues of Indigeneity, settler colonialism, and comparative racialization. Through her close and incisive readings of the works of various Asian North American literary and visual cultural producers, Day provides a genealogy of settler ... Read More
