Sawyer Seminar V

MIXED “RACE” IN SOUTHEAST ASIA?: RACIAL THEORIES IN COMPETING EMPIRES


10AM - 4PM @ The Alumni Association Board Room (301), Ronald Tutor Campus Center, USC

Please e-mail Kana Yoshida at cjrc@dornsife.usc.edu to register, and if you would like to receive advanced copies of presenter papers for this seminar (highly encouraged!).

What were the various racial ideologies of competing colonial empires in Southeast Asia and how have they impacted postcolonial nations in the region? Does inter-Asian mixing, such as Japanese-Vietnamese, Chinese-Filipino, or Indian-Malay, count as “mixed race” and mixed-race studies, or is mixed-race studies limited to “Eurasian” models? Why, why not, and what are the stakes?
