*****
"The ubiquity and visibility of diverse elite Asians in global spaces destabilize Western models that have long viewed things "Asian" as exotically poor and backward. (...) By intruding into global spaces and upsetting Western assumptions linking race, wealth, and aesthetics, do elite Asians become further ensnared in a racializing logic of humanity? (...)"
This talk discusses how elite Asians are received in cosmopolitan spaces and how they are re-worlding American racial hierarchy.
