      Considers the ways Asian American studies has engaged with humanitarian crises and large-scale violations

     ****************************************************
 
   “This collection shows us why and how, as a field of study born of twentieth-century Cold War acts of dehumanization,
      Asian American Studies in the twenty-first century is bound to be a leading edge of human rights critique.”
      — COLLEEN LYE, University of California, Berkeley
 
   “This book is an exciting and entirely new contribution in the cultural studies of human rights and in Asian American Studies.
     It brings a transnational—and, in particular, transpacific—approach to the study of human rights, establishing how central
     the presence of Asia has been in the iteration and practice of human rights from the end of World War II to the present.
     The editors and contributors make clear the varied and significant interventions that Asian Americanist critique poses for the
     study of rights discourses, geopolitical crises, state formation, and humanitarianism.”
      — CRYSTAL PARIKH, Director of the Asian/Pacific/ American Institute at New York University 
      
     The essays in this collection provide a sharper understanding of how Asian/Americans have been subjected to human rights
     violations, how they act as subjectsof history and agents of change, and how they produce knowledge around such subjects. 
     The editors of and contributors to The Subject(s) of Human Rights examine refugee narratives, human trafficking, and
     citizenship issues in twentieth- and twenty-first century literature. These themes further refract issues of  American war-making, 
     settler colonialism, military occupation,collateral damage, and displacement that relocate  the imagined geographies of Asian
     America from the periphery to the center of human rights critique.(2020-06-15 歐美所訪問學人李秀娟小姐)
