Summary
Situating her discussion within the context of the history of antimiscegenation regulation in the United States and its construction of power relations and racial meaning, Koshy (English and Asian American studies, U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) conducts close readings of narratives of white-Asian miscegenation in order to track the shifts in racial and sexual ideologies encoded in the texts. Paying particular attention to the differences in the way Asian man/white woman dyads and white man/Asian woman dyads signified differing representations of Asian assimilability, she looks at John Luther Long's Madame Butterfly, D.W. Griffith's film Broken Blossoms, the writings of Filipino American Carlos Bulosan, and Wife and Jasmine by Indian American Bharati Mukherjee
