  • “How crazy is your maid'” Domestic workers in the
           “new India”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 41 - 48
      Abstract: India is celebrated as one of the largest emerging economies but domestic workers remain a large workforce that is unorganized and exploited. As the figure of the “maid” changes in contemporary popular culture, how do more elite, middle-class employers understand domestic workers in the “new India'” This article draws on inter-textual discussions on social media platforms such as Quora and Twitter where most discussants are urban, class and caste privileged, and display Hindu nationalist identities. It examines representation of recent conflicts at large condominium complexes to argue that new infrastructure projects become a crucial terrain on which class, caste and religion-based struggles are mapped, Second, it focuses on popular narratives of “entrepreneurship” for domestic workers and argues that these narratives worsen structural inequities. Finally, it studies new technology as a means of creating inclusion for domestic workers that serve to further mark them by class, caste and other marginalized identities.

  • Media populism and the metanarrative of God in the Philippines

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 49 - 56
      Abstract: This article uses the concept of media populism to analyze the sophisticated role of networked platforms in organizing political discourses. Building on the scholarship on mediatization and mediated populism, it examines the mediated appeal of the God metanarrative—Religious Duterte, Catholic Church, Apollo Quiboloy, and Daily Prayer—and shows how God-related posts amplify the communicative style of populism in the Philippines. The God metanarrative on Facebook inspires communal engagement much as it polarizes the civil consensus on free expression and inclusive nationalism. The embedding of non-conflictual sentiments in the digital sphere blurs the precarious line between free expression of religious views and of political support, enabling political entrepreneurs to exploit the former as a way to consolidate the latter.

  • South Asian Americans and anti-Black racism: critically reflexive
           racialization as an anti-racist vernacular discourse

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 1 - 8
      Abstract: In this study, I propose the concept of critically reflexive racialization as a vernacular discourse through which nondominant groups engage critical reflexivity in exploring and renegotiating their racialized identities in relation to other marginalized groups in the struggle against White supremacy. This study is based on my analysis of the discourses of South Asian Americans within the online news magazine American Kahani over the course of a year following the murder of George Floyd. I explore how they (re-)negotiate their racialized identities vis-à-vis Black Americans and in relation to anti-Black racism, critically reflecting on historical, discursive, and structural contexts around Whiteness, caste, and colorism. This study provides a lens into (anti-)racism among the South Asian American community, demonstrating a need for continued research into conversations around race within it and other communities of color.

  • “My Islam be Black”: resisting erasure, silence, and marginality at
           the intersection of race and religion

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 9 - 16
      Abstract: This study explores practices of digitally mediated critique and resistance at the intersection of race and religion. Drawing on theories of intersectionality, silence, erasure, and marginality, I analyze discourses from three online communities focused on Black Muslim experiences within the US. Against the backdrop of systemic anti-Black racism and Islamophobia, my analysis highlights themes related to the (re)centering of Black Muslim experiences to resist the invisibility resulting from dominant assumptions about Muslim identity. Based on these findings, I argue interrogations of unity play an important role in challenging such invisibility. I discuss the implications these findings have for theorizing the intra-categorical complexity inherent in marginalized groups and conclude by identifying future work to advance our understanding of this complexity in global contexts.

  • The reproduction of canonical silences: re-reading Habermas in the context
           of slavery and the slave trade

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 17 - 24
      Abstract: Recent discussions on “decolonizing” knowledge production have often foregrounded the importance of centering “marginal” perspectives, which is crucial but insufficient as it risks leaving the canon untouched. Jürgen Habermas’ book on the bourgeois public sphere is one of the most frequently cited and debated canonical texts in media and communication studies. Drawing on the case of London’s coffee houses and newspapers, this article argues for a critical re-engagement with canonical thinkers. It examines what the emergence of a bourgeois public sphere in 17th- and 18th-century England looks like if we re-read it within the context of slavery and the slave trade. The article demonstrates that race does not simply provide another “prism” to examine the bourgeois public sphere but instead enables and is constitutive of it. The reproduction of canonical silences through the continued circulation of influential texts has implications for how we conceptualize racialized publics in contemporary times.

  • “She is as feminine as my mother, as my sister, as my biologically
           female friends”: On the promise and limits of transgender visibility in
           fashion media

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 25 - 32
      Abstract: As transgender media representation continues to gain traction, trans scholars and activists have contended with the double-edged sword of visibility: while trans visibility has the potential to familiarize cisgender audience with trans experiences, it also risks reinforcing normative ideas about gender expression. Taking fashion media as a case study, I look at trans representation between 2013 and 2020 in the print editions of U.S.-based fashion publications Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Women’s Wear Daily. I argue that trans representation in fashion magazines produces competing discourses about trans identity as simultaneously conforming to gender norms and subverting the gender binary. Further, fashion magazines employ a neoliberal logic of visibility and self-empowerment, positioning trans individuals—particularly trans women of color—as exceptional figures and role models. Finally, I find a recent shift towards a social justice framework as trans activists of color are given greater voice in the pages of fashion magazines.

  • “White at heart”: making race in Marine Corps recruitment
           advertising

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 33 - 40
      Abstract: Focusing on interviews with advertising professionals, this article identifies racialized logics at work in the cultural production of United States Marine Corps recruitment advertisements and reads them as crucial contributors to the late-stage war on terror as a racial project. Characterized by the emergence of post-racial discourses, an ongoing commitment to warfare, and an embrace of diversity and inclusion within the U.S. military as hallmarks of American exceptionalism, the late-stage war on terror was represented in recruiting ads as a war fought by a racially representative Marine Corps dedicated to benevolence. Identifying primary themes through which race was constructed and contested in Corps recruitment advertising between 2012 and 2016, this article makes visible the processes through which racial ideologies manifest in cultural production. Though seemingly guided by a commitment to inclusion, the production of recruitment materials consolidated Whiteness while making limited space for the representation of a racially diverse military.

  • Embodied reclamation: how Big Baby Balam and Danza Ocelotl represent the
           body as a site for decolonization

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 57 - 64
      Abstract: In this article, I investigate how two paintings—Big Baby Balam and Danza Ocelotl—represent the potential for embodied reclamation for Chicanas/os. Through these paintings, the artist Yreina D. Cervántez situates her body as a site for decolonization through a process which I describe as embodied reclamation. In decolonizing her body and situating her body as a site for decolonization, Cervántez represents the body as a physical and material location that was colonized and can be reclaimed. This article extends decolonial theories to discuss embodied reclamation, which reconceptualizes the body as a physical site for reclamation rather than colonization. I am looking at the way these paintings represent a wrestling with embodied identity, and from that I call for more work exploring the “art of identity” as a strategy of self-making in contexts where particular bodies are Othered and brutalized.

  • Dancing between model minorityhood and yellow peril: accusations of
           needing “personality”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 65 - 72
      Abstract: This article traces one manifestation of the unique process of Asian-American abjection (Shimakawa, K. [2002]. “I should be—American!” Abjection and the Asian (American) Body. In National Abjection (pp. 23–56). Duke University Press.), produced from a dialectic of an aspirational model minority myth and the targeted status of an ever-evolving yellow peril. I highlight the nuances of such abjection through a “lacking personality” metanarrative imposed on Asian-American finalists on the reality television show, So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD). I forward an Asian-American rhetorical approach informed by critical rhetorics of race by Lacy and Ono (2011. Critical Rhetorics of Race. New York University Press) and Ono and Pham (2009. Asian Americans and the media, Vol. 2. Polity) to problematize rhetoric that abjects Asian-Americans. I suggest that depictions of Asian-Americans as lacking personality in popular media are part of the same continuum of racialized yellow peril abjection, upholding a conditional belonging that allows anti-Asian racial violence to flourish, particularly in moments of crisis and public moral panic.

  • Beyond bad hombres, mamacitas, and borders: rethinking representation of
           Mexicanidad in 2017 animation Coco

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 73 - 80
      Abstract: The release of Coco in 2017 came as a cultural reaffirmation for many Mexicans who have previously seen themselves represented in animation as heavily-accented maids or comedic sidekicks included to forward the narrative of the White hero. Coco brought to screen the first animated Disney feature film with a Mexican protagonist. If previous animated Latinx representation has consistently relied on the same repeated archetypes (bandidos, bad hombres, machos, the constantly pregnant Latina, etc.), Coco took a different approach: celebrating mestizaje and contradictions of Mexican identities, and embracing a culturally nuanced portrayal of Mexicanidad. We explore how exactly those contradictions and paradoxes happen, and what they mean for the affected community. We argue that Coco subverts negative, narrow stereotypes by highlighting the complexities of Mexicanidad, while simultaneously paving the way for improved Latinx representation in children’s animation.
