Item description for Race, Panic and the Memory of Migration (Traces) by Meaghan Morris & Brett De Bary...

This second volume of the Traces series addresses the fabrication of an idea of "race," and its historical dimensions. Topics range from an analysis of "responsibility" and the April Third Massacre that took place on Cheju Island off the Korean peninsula in 1948; to a discussion on the politics of writing about ethnicity in a North American context of "euphoria" for a multiculturalism fraught with unresolved tensions; to a study of the racializing role of religion under Japanese colonial rule. In the larger context of an attempt to engage in a multilingual discussion on racism and nationalism, Meaghan Morris asks, "Under what conditions may any worldly issue be considered 'the same' issue debated in different languages? What happens as it circulates between distinct academic cultures that may or may not overlap?" She begins to formulate her answer in the context of her experience of coming from Australia, without an understanding of Cantonese, to discuss issues of "race" and migration in a Hong Kong classroom. In so doing, she outlines a belief that, in order for Traces to challenge the prevailing distribution of theory, it is not enough to publish in multiple languages, but that the project must also scrutinize academic protocol.
