Summary:
Has the recent interest in transpacific migration studies reconfigured the dominant paradigm of critical ethnic and race studies in North and Latin America, which is largely derived from histories of transatlantic migration? How does the history of Filipino and Chinese migration to Mexico, or Korean migration to the U.S. and Canada, along with the emergence of mixed-race identities and affiliations in those countries from intermarriage with local indigenous or settler populations, influence perceptions of race and mixed race heritage?
Description:
