Korean American Diaspora Subjectivity: Gender, Ethnicity, Nationalism, and Self-reflexivity
Clark University, 2008 - Assimilation (Sociology) - 363 pages
In this study, I examine processes of identity that are gendered and gendering, racialized and racializing, national(ist) and transnational, through different forms of narratives by and about a specific group of diasporic intellectuals. More specifically, I addressed the relationships between individual identity and master narratives by investigating in what contexts individual women and men narrate their identities and subscribe to, resist against, or synthesize particular discourses consciously and unwittingly, and why they do so. By examining different forms of empirical data, I also looked for slippages that revealed the conceptual tensions between a self-reflexive, self-defining, and thinking agent and a fragmented, constituted, and situated subject.
