Summary
"This exciting book provides a concise, thoughtful, and critical approach to the study of Asian Americans and the media. Introducing the complex subject of representations of Asian Americans in US media, the authors explore ways in which Asian Americans have resisted those representations, often through their own media productions." "In an engaging manner, Ono and Pham summarize key scholarship and lay theoretical groundwork to help the reader understand this vibrant area of study. Representations are covered both in traditional media, including print, film, music, and television, and in newer media, primarily Internet situated. The authors powerfully illustrate how Asian Americans had little control over early forms of their representation in US media, analysing the resultant images constructed by historically dominant white society. Ono and Pham highlight the recurrent patterns of representations and the diversity of responses by Asian Americans, who today are often creating complex, sophisticated, and imaginative self-portraits." "Asian Americans and the Media will be an ideal text for all students taking courses on Asian American Studies, Minorities and the Media, Media Criticism, and Race and Ethnic Studies."--Jacket.
