Synopsis

This volume analyzes mediated articulations of "cosmopatriotism" in East and South-East Asian popular cultures and arts. Cosmopatriots navigate between a loyalty to the home country and a sense of longing for and belonging to the world. Rather than searching for the truly globalized cosmopolitans, the authors of this collection look for the postcolonial, rooted cosmopolitans who insist on thinking and feeling simultaneously beyond and within the nation. The cultural sites they discuss include Hong Kong, Indonesia, China, Singapore, the United States, South Korea and Australia. They show how media from both sides of the arbitrary divide between high art and popular culture - including film, literature, the fine arts, radio, music, television and mobile phones - function as vehicles for the creation and expression of, or reflection upon, intersections between patriotism and cosmopolitanism.
