Project Description

This project examines Asian groups in Australia and the US with the aim of identifying points of connection and difference that will strengthen our understanding of race relations, national identities and globalised cultures. By focusing on a range of cultural activities in visual arts, popular culture, community celebration and academia, the research extends current knowledge about how Asian identities emerge in response to different histories of managing cultural diversity in te West. Knowing how diasporic communities feel 'at home' also illuminates the ways in which they may feel disenfranchised, thus advancing knowledge about the relationship between ethnicity, transnationalism and cultural citizenship.
