The Exuisite Corpse of Asian America

Rachel Lee ☆ 5 review

Lee teases out the preoccupation with human fragments and posthuman ecologies in the context of Asian American cultural production and theory She unpacks how the designation of “Asian American” itself is a mental construct that is paradoxically linked to the biological bodyThrough chapters that each use a body part as springboard forreading Asian American texts Lee inaugurates a new avenue of research on biosociality and biopolitics within Asian American criticism focused on the literary and cultural understandings of pastoral government.

    This was much of a difficult book to read than I anticipated Mostly because I knew nothing about this book but that the title was intriguing An exuisite corpse? How Asian Americans enact body politics? Sign me up What I didn't anticipate was the sometimes repetitive statements of theory I did not need to be told so many times that Margaret Cho was enacting an explosive politics around her pussy just the once and then move on Likewise the ways in which her standup enacted good parenthood vs bad parenthood and how her minority body plays into her desire to have a child Or her explosive genitalia Did I mention that? I bring up Cho specifically because Rachel Lee mentions her in all parts of the book the introduction the chapter specifically on her stand up the conclusion the tail end and I'm sure in the other chapters This was an excellent introduction to body politics and I've started binge reading that This was also an excellent compilation of Asian American art and aesthetic Even if some of the included books were only briefly mentioned My Year in Meats specifically Lee was able to compile an overwhelming amount of fascinating and Asian American produced art literature
