This panel seeks papers examining the topic of transpacific
colonialisms/postcolonialisms. Questions and concerns can include but are
not limited to: How do practices or notions of colonialism or
postcolonialism travel across the Pacific? How do Asian and Asian
American travelers, writers, journalists, expatriates, laborers,
filmmakers, etc., represent themselves within contexts of
colonialism/postcolonialism, perhaps even redefining the relations that
constitute those very terms? How are representations of seemingly
localized colonial or postcolonial contexts affected by transpacific
social, political, and historical relations?
