Conclusion: Living transpacifically

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review


In “Living Transpacifically,” Yunte Huang blends memoir and criticism to recall his years of growing up in China, an experience profoundly shaped by the currents of transpacific flows, cross-cultural exchanges as intangible as radio signals, or as real as blood-soaked pages of pirated foreign books. His narrative leads to Tiananmen Square and then migration to the United States, where he would pen two books on the transpacific. The field of transpacific studies that he named provides a new perspective on the connections and linkages that span an ocean, and tries to both recognize and address inequities in knowledge production between scholars situated in different geographic locations and in different disciplines.
