This series will focus on the construction of mixed race or creole identities within the Asia-Pacific region. There has been considerable discussion of mixed race within European and American contexts (
mestiza, hapa, metis, beur, etc) but comparatively little has been said about the many biracial and 'multiracial populations within the Asia-Pacific.
Economic globalisation demands that people cross national borders with increasing frequency. This means that new mixed race identities are a prominent feature of the contemporary world. The series examines this contemporary importance from a variety of disciplinary perspectives as well as considering the ways that mixed race categories were in the past constructed out of the colonial encounter.
The series accepts monographs, collected papers and conference proceedings.
