Synopsis

In contrast to much scholarship on cross-cultural encounters, which focuses primarily on contact between indigenous peoples and 'settlers' or 'sojourners', this book is concerned with migrant aspects of this phenomenon - whether migrant-migrant or migrant-host encounters - bringing together studies from a variety of perspectives on cross-cultural encounters, their past, and their resonances across the contemporary Asia-Pacific region. Organised thematically into sections focusing on 'imperial encounters' of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, 'identities' in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and 'contemporary citizenship' and the ways in which this is complicated by mobility and cross-cultural encounters, the volume presents studies of New Zealand, Singapore, Australia, Vanuatu, Mauritius and China to highlight key themes of mobility, intimacies, ethnicity and 'race', heritage and diaspora, through rich evidence such as photographs, census data, the arts and interviews.

Demonstrating the importance of multidisciplinary ways of looking at migrant cross-cultural encounters through blending historical and social science methodologies from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, Migrant Cross-Cultural Encounters in Asia and the Pacific will appeal to anthropologists, sociologists, cultural geographers and historians with interests in migration, mobility and cross-cultural encounters.
