Established and emerging scholars offer timely discussions of "diasporic Chinese studies," drawing on transnational, postcolonial, globalisation, and racialisation theories. The collection examines what is at stake in the consideration of diasporic literatures and the connections and fissures emerging in these new critical terrains.
From David Henry Hwang's M. Butterfly to Evelyn Lau's Diary of a Runaway to Fred Wah's poetry, diasporic Chinese literature in English is reaching wider audiences. The interdisciplinary essays in Culture, Identity, Commodity provide close textual readings and general theoretical frameworks for a range of textual productions - novels, autobiographies, plays, and Chinese cooking shows - that address this dynamic field.
