Overview

The twentieth century was a time of unprecedented migration and interaction for Asian, Latin American, and Pacific Islander cultures in the Americas and the American Pacific. Some of these ethnic groups already had historic ties, but technology, migration, and globalization during the twentieth century brought them into even closer contact. Transnational Crossroads explores and triangulates for the first time the interactions and contacts among these three cultural groups that were brought together by the expanding American empire from 1867 to 1950.

Through a comparative framework, this volume weaves together narratives of U.S. and Spanish empire, globalization, resistance, and identity, as well as social, labor, and political movements. Contributors examine multiethnic celebrities and key figures, migratory paths, cultural productions, and social and political formations among these three groups. Engaging multiple disciplines and methodologies, these studies of Asian American, Latin American, and Pacific Islander cultural interactions explode traditional notions of ethnic studies and introduce new approaches to transnational and comparative studies of the Americas and the American Pacific.

Editorial Reviews

Rona Halualani
Transnational Crossroads is impressive in scope and purpose, weaving together discourses and narratives of empire, globalization, resistance, and cultural politics of converging Asian, Latina, and Pacific Islander communities. Its focus is most welcome and so exciting for engagement in these issues.”—Rona Halualani, author of In the Name of Hawaiians: Native Identities and Cultural Politics
Martin F. Manalansan IV
Transnational Crossroads is unique and a wonderful triangulation of Pacific Americans, Asian Americans, and Latinos. It will be a sourcebook for both graduate and undergraduate courses in critical race studies, comparative ethnic studies, core courses in American studies, and migration studies.”—Martin F. Manalansan IV, author of Global Divas: Filipino Gay Men in the Diaspora
