About the Book

This issue of the award-winning academic journal decenters the Global North. It foregrounds gender in varied inquiries of Asian diasporas as comparative times and spaces. Scholars engage interdisciplinary approaches to examine the under-visited Asian diasporas, against the dominant narratives of identity, agency, migration, settlement, and Black-and-White notions of race.

About the Book
