Acknowledgments

THIS PROJECT could not have been completed without the support and inspiration of mentors, friends, colleagues, and family members. I am indebted to Akasha Hull, Helene Moglen, and José David Saldívar, whose guidance and commitment brought this project to fruition and whose scholarship serves as a model for my own. I want to thank Nora Okja Keller and Laura Hyun Yi Kang for their inspiration and friendship at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Renny Christopher, Ellen Hart, Ekua Omosupe, and Miriam Wallace all offered me valuable feedback and encouragement. I am most grateful to Elena Tajima Creef, whose unequivocal support is equaled only by the shining example of her own work in Asian American Studies.

My heartfelt thanks goes to C. Lok Chua, Tassie Gwilliam, Wendy Hesford, Daniel Kim, Elaine Kim, Wendy Kozol, Josephine Lee, Robert Lee, Frank Palmeri, Sangeeta Ray, Malini Johar Schueller, Mihoko Suzuki, Lindsey Tucker, Sau-ling Wong, and Robyn Wiegman, who graciously read and commented on parts of the manuscript in its various manifestations. Your astute feedback has sustained and motivated me throughout the writing process. I wish to thank Peter Bellis, Shari Benstock, Suzanne Oboler, and Sandra Pouchet Paquette for their support and collegiality. To those who make up the Humanities Colloquium at the University of Miami, especially David Glimp and Michael Rothberg, your commitment to intellectual life provided necessary nourishment and engagement. To Janice Okoomian, Susette Min, and Lynn Ink: your work challenged me to give my best. I cannot thank Thomas LeBien at Princeton University Press enough for his professionalism at a crucial stage of this manuscript's production. The artist Hu°ng graciously assented to the reproduction of her painting, “Students,” to adorn this book's cover. I am grateful to Wendy Law-Yone, Fiona Cheong, and Jade Snow Wong for their willingness to talk with me about their work.

To my parents, Willie and Sue Mae Bow: without your sacrifices and love this work would not have been possible. Julian Ty continually entertained and delightfully diverted me in the course of this project.

Most of all, Russ Castronovo stimulated and challenged this work and I am grateful for his energy, faith, and love.

This book was completed with the generous fellowship support of the Office of the President of the University of California, the Center for Cultural Studies and Oakes College at the University of California, Santa
