I have provided supplemental pdfs to help answer this question.
Why do authors that we studied argue that increasing acceptance,appreciation, and inclusion of multicultural difference after World War II does not resultin challenging racial domination and racial hierarchies established through UScolonialism and imperialism? Analyze and evaluate wartime, post-war, Cold War and/orcontemporary liberalism and its impact on representations of Asian/Americans and/orArab, Muslim, and South Asians in two different historical contexts that we analyzed.How do authors challenge or suggest that we might challenge this dominant gaze ornarrative?
Choose two: Internment, liberal feminist belly dancing beginning in the1970s, Cold War and contemporary globalized Model Minorities (“Crazy Rich Asians”and/or “Better Luck Tomorrow”), Refugee Exceptionalism. Focus on both significantsimilarities and differences that you see. Be sure to cite, define, analyze, and evaluaterelevant key words and concepts and to begin with an arguable thesis (a thesis thatrequires evidence and analysis)
Take a stab at this difficult question for Extra Credit. (3pts) (100 words minimum):
When talking about the Model Minority stereotype, Ono and Pham argue that itrepresents an ambivalent stereotype of both admiration and fear. Sunaina Maira alsopoints to ambivalence within “imperial feelings” that continue to be experienced even inliberal minded groups who support multiculturalism. Analyze one of these examples ofambivalence and how it might resonate with your own positionality with the US, whichas we have been discussing, is both an imperialistic and democratic na@on. As Stuart Hallinsists, positionality is central to identity and representation. How do you culturallyposition yourself and navigate living within a nation that maintains its imperial force andwhere values and practices of liberal democratic multicultural inclusion can yet maintainimperialist hierarchical power structures and cultural values.
