Imagining Asia in the Era of Trump
Living in the “Asian Century,” when different nationalisms and racial paradigms collide with discourses about rising Asia, the idea of Asia looms large in the U.S. cultural and political imagination.

How might we look to artists and writers, activists and cultural producers for new possibilities, politics, and resistance? What temporal and spatial mappings of Asia, U.S.-China relations, diaspora, and transpacific connection are produced in everyday practices? And what are the geopolitical and cultural implications of these new imaginings?
