Item description for Race, Panic and the Memory of Migration (Traces : a Multilingual Journal of Cultural Theory and Translation, No 2) by Meaghan Morris...
"Race" Panic and the Memory of Migration includes 18 original essays, nine of which have been translated into English for the first time. It is an exploration of the complex relations between violence, historical memory, and the production of "ethnicity" and "race." Some essays analyze the panicked "othering" that has led to violence against Chinese Indonesians and to the little-known massacres of Hui Muslims in 19th-century China and of Cheju Islanders in Korea in 1948. Others examine the fraught discourses surrounding colonialism, immigration, and nation-building in Australia, Taiwan, Japan, the United States, and Ireland.
