Chinese Communism, Cultural Revolution, and American Multiculturalism

(p.181) Afterword
The Ethnic Avant-Garde

Steven S. Lee

Columbia University Press

The Afterword highlights the afterlives of the inter-war ethnic avant-garde, first by tracking China's rise as a new revolutionary center which attracted a new generation of leftists. I then show how Karen Tei Yamashita's 2010 novel "I Hotel"--which captures this turn to China--resuscitates many of the features of the inter-war ethnic avant-garde, adding to it a host of formal innovations, as well as heightened emphases on local resistance and gender equality.

Keywords:   revolutionary pathos, Maoism, New Communist Movement, Asian American activism, end of history thesis, contemporary literature
