...Asian Americans. 23 Scholarship on the representation of Asian Americans in cinema, focusing on television as opposed to films, is useful in tracing Asian American representation due to the relative production frequency of television episodes. Darrell Hamamoto’s groundbreaking Monitored Peril ( 1994 ) engages Asian American studies beyond media and communication and also takes an interdisciplinary historical and sociological approach to the study of TV. 24 Hamamoto traces the historical archives of the representation of Asian Americans on TV, demonstrating an...

...and happy, for the tree lies between the Rio Grande and the wall built in that stretch of the border. As such, it is under threat. There are plans to raze everything between the wall and the river to make it easier for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to patrol and monitor the area. Two ICE officers patrolled the area where we stood, the green van sticking closer to the wall than to the river at that point. The tree was an oasis, and looking over the fields that lie to the east and that are also in that in-between space, I had the feeling that no...

...support him unconditionally. An emerging body of scholarly and academic work looks at the significant musical, cultural, and social contributions of The Smiths and Morrissey.

...humble study, the first edition of El tíguere dominicano serves as an urtext for virtually every academic work that has addressed the topic of tígueres and tigueraje . The form of this book is that of an “estudio ensayístico,” or book of essays, that sets out to analyze the history, origins, and psychology of the tíguere beyond Damirón’s wary depiction of Santo Domingo’s urban poor. 27 Despite these high ambitions, the book cites only a few academic sources and relies a great deal on anecdotal and informal evidence, thereby demanding a great deal of...

...), edited by Russell Leong. The scholarship that begins to emerge in the 1990s maintains a focus on race, but widens the critical scope to engage simultaneously across multiple social structures and varying relations of power within North American society. For instance, in Monitored Peril: Asian Americans and Television ( 1994 ), Darrell Y. Hamamoto examines the relationship between television and larger political, economic, and cultural structures. Hamamoto argues that, particularly in the postwar period, television is instrumental in shaping how American...

...with the rise of the academic fields that were most pertinent to the study of the Vietnam War in film: cinema studies and Asian American studies. As these fields began to professionalize through the establishment of academic departments and programs, peer-reviewed journals and book series, and dedicated conferences and symposia, these institutional and social structures shaped the appearance of the first collected and in-depth scholarship on the Vietnam War in film (as opposed to film reviews, even if they appeared in academic journals). Among the first...

...Rights and Asian American Literature and Culture Just Like People In her poem “The Watchtower,” Mitsuye Yamada pairs a brief description of the “one uniformed guard,” who monitors the Japanese Americans detained in the World War II internment camps, along with that of the teenagers who dance to a live band in a camp rec hall: “This is what we did with our days. / We loved and we lived / just like people.” 1 The presence of the guard belies the conditions under which the speaker and her peers live “like people,” conditions also spelled out in Yamada’s...

Kanellos writes, “as an immigrant press, news of the homeland and its relationship to the United States was of primary concern; as a minority press, the protection of civil rights and the monitoring of the community’s economic, educational, and cultural development came to the fore,” and as “a press in exile … many of the newspapers … were established by political refugees who took advantage of the U.S. tradition of a free press to offer their compatriots (here and in...

...of Central Americans in the US imaginary was determined more by Hollywood films and journalism than by Central Americans. Following a shameful twenty-year-long involvement in the Vietnam War ( 1955–1975 ), US citizens looked closely at the isthmus as atrocities unfolded. They monitored killings, genocides, torture, and human right abuses propelled by the US government, which trained and contributed millions of dollars to the Central American military in the repression of its peoples. A US sanctuary movement and solidarity groups with the Central American...

.... The soldiers took Montejo as a prisoner to the Huehuetenango army base, where he was interrogated, beaten, and expected to be executed. The text ends with Montejo’s quasi-miraculous survival and subsequent escape across the border to Chiapas, Mexico, where he ended up in a UN-monitored refugee camp. There is no immigration to the United States in the text itself. However, it is public knowledge that Montejo later entered the United States, completed his BA at Bucknell University, and then went on to obtain an MA in anthropology at the State University of New...

...education . Until the establishment of the National schools system in 1831 , with its uniform curriculum and the opportunity for bright pupils to become monitors and assistant teachers, very little opportunity existed for the systematic education of women. Compulsory education, introduced in 1892 , also made a contribution. In the same year, the Queen's Colleges in Belfast, Cork and Galway began to admit women to all courses (the Dublin universities did not admit women until 1910 ), as a result of pressure exerted by a small number of feminists....
