TransAsia: Screen Cultures

Series Editors: Koichi Iwabuchi (Monash University) and Chris Berry (King’s College London)


What is Asia? What does it mean to be Asian? Who thinks they are Asian? How is “Asian-ness” produced? In Asia’s transnational public space, many kinds of cross-border connections proliferate, from corporate activities to citizen-to-citizen linkages, all shaped by media—from television series to action films, video piracy, and a variety of subcultures facilitated by internet sites and other computer-based cultures. Films are packaged at international film festivals and marketed by DVD companies as “Asian,” while the descendants of migrants increasingly identify themselves as “Asian,” then turn to “Asian” screen cultures to find themselves and their roots. As reliance on national frameworks becomes obsolete in many traditional disciplines, this series spotlights groundbreaking research on trans-border, screen-based cultures in Asia.
