Abstract

Jung excavates a rich history of radicalism, empire, and state violence across the Pacific showing the history of European radicalism to be deeply imbricated in racial formation. Asserting that the tension between free trade and free labor and the discourses of anarchy and modernity overlapped into questions of national security to consolidate state power, Jung argues that these developments call into question the ways in which Asian American studies has privileged "immigrants" and "immigration." What emerges as the result of questioning these given frameworks is a history of seditious subjects that fall outside the normal boundaries of Asian American studies.
