Om boka

How

transnational modernity is taking shape in and in relation to Asia


Fashion and Beauty in the Time of

Asia

considers the role of bodily aesthetics in the shaping of Asian modernities and

the formation of the so-called "Asian Century." S. Heijin Lee, Christina H.

Moon, and Thuy Linh Nguyen Tu train our eyes on sites as far-flung, varied, and

intimate as Guangzhou and Los Angeles, Saigon and Seoul, New York and Toronto. They

map the transregional connections, ever-evolving aspirations and sensibilities,

and new worlds and life paths forged through engagements with fashion and

beauty.


Contributors

consider American influence on plastic surgery in Korea, Vietnamese debates

about "the fashionable," and the costs and commitments demanded of those who

make and wear fast fashion, from Chinese garment workers to Nepalese nail

technicians in New York who are mandated to dress "fashionably." In

doing so, this interdisciplinary anthology moves beyond common

characterizations of Asians and the Asian diaspora as simply abject laborers or

frenzied consumers, analyzing who the modern Asian subject is now: what they

wear and how they work, move, eat, and shop.
