More than 50 years later, contemporary scholars, including Bill Mullen, Gary Okihiro, and Vijay Prashad, are responding to the 1955 Bandung Conference's powerful vision of an Afro-Asian world of color poised to take back the reins of history and challenge the global hegemony of the world's superpowers. These scholars' work emerges not from theoretical models of hybridity within postcolonial and cultural studies but — like the Bandung Conference itself — from anti-imperialist and transnational political agendas. Significantly, as Colleen Lye suggests, this work comprises a third stage of ethnic studies, mediating between limited, nation-bound multiracial analysis and the perceived lack of historical specificity in diaspora models.

"I have given no small attention to that not unvexed subject, the skin of the whale. I have had controversies about it with experienced whalemen afloat, and learned naturalists ashore. My original opinion remains unchanged; but it is only an opinion. The question is, what and where is the skin of the whale?"

--Herman Melville, Moby-Dick

Childhood and the Production of National Ideals (ASA, 11/18/10)

updated: 
Tuesday, January 5, 2010 - 11:32am
Cynthia C. Degnan

This panel seeks papers that examine the ways in which children are positioned during national moments of crisis. Building upon recent scholarship that interrogates the placement of the child at the center of political debates in the U.S., we aim to understand how childhood functions as a key site in the production of national ideals. How do children - both in their conceptualization and their actualization - provide the chain that binds the family and the nation? Which children are thought to embody the future and thus must be saved for the sake of the nation, and which children are imagined to pose a perverse and degenerative threat to familial and national futurity?
