"Whatever is true for space and time, this much is true for place: we are immersed in it and could not do without it. To be at all – to exist in any way – is to be somewhere, and to be somewhere is to be in some kind of place. Place is as requisite as the air we breathe, the ground on which we stand, the bodies we have." Edward Casey

According to the U.S. Census, in 2010 Asian Americans comprised of 18.5 million and 6% of the population. Constituted of several ethnicities and races, they are frequently lumped under one monolithic umbrella with their individual ethnicities reduced to catch-all terms of "Asian" or "Chinese" or "Indian." Yet, in spite of the many stereotypes attached to them, Asian American children and adolescents are constructing unique identities within the intersections of several communities and making their presence felt within American public spaces.

Humour is widely regarded as the tendency to provoke laughter and provide enjoyment, yet when we are amused, laugh or smile at something we regard to be funny, the context of the object in question is often not funny at all, but rather sad and to be pitied. Although humour may be often associated with 'mere comedy' and thus, with a lower form of literature, it is striking to note the great number of great works of literature that indeed use humour. Throughout the ages, humour has always remained a popular approach of many authors who desire to provoke a reaction in their readers or audiences.
