“Invisibility is an Unnatural Disaster”: Asian American Feminist Theory and Praxis

View File

This panel is a series of reflections on the nature of what might be called Asian American feminist theory. While there are feminist theorists who are Asian American, the phrase does not readily call to mind a canon. Despite this our panel proceeds from the assumption that it makes some sense to talk about Asian American feminist theory and works out what exactly constitutes such theorizing and its goals. Mitsuye Yamada’s discussions of Asian American political action as a practice of becoming visible inform each of our papers. Our aim in this panel is to provide the occasion for both panelists and audience members to reflect on the variegated nature of Asian American experience and to put this into conversation with work being carried out by other women of color theorists.
