Postmodern Hybridity and Performing Identity in Gish Jen and Rebecca Walker

By Fu-jen Chen
REAL: Review of English and American Literature [Yingmei wenxue pinglun]

In this essay, I shall first briefly discuss literature by early Chinese immigrants (as “ambassadors of good will”), second-generation Chinese American writers (some as assimilationists), Chinese American writers in the 1960s (some as cultural nationalists), and early bi-racial writers—all of whom generally situate racial identity within a binary context. Then, using Jen’s Mona in the Promised Land and Walker’s Black White and Jewish, I will explore a new mode of subjectivity in today’s postmodern-capitalist regime, an identity that is no longer situated in the in-between of binary oppositions but involves an incessant movement of a proliferation of differences.
