A Feminist Transnationality

A Feminist Transnationality

(p.62) 2 A Feminist Transnationality
Visuality and Identity

Shu-Mei Shih

University of California Press

This chapter examines a particular kind of transnationality in its intersection with feminist subjectivity, in what may be called a feminist transnationality. It argues “a particular kind of transnationality” as a way to circumscribe the discussion of transnationality as a mode of representation constituted by immigration, not the feminist transnational collectivity or coalition that engages in feminist work across national borders. In designating the work of Chinese immigrant artist Hung Liu as working through a particular kind of feminist transnationality, the intent is to register the location of the immigrant artist articulating a gendered visual economy deftly negotiating multiple cultural and cross-cultural nodal points of meaning and signification, inflected by transnational crossings through immigration, returns to China, and returns to the United States.

Keywords:   transnationality, feminist subjectivity, immigration, Hung Liu, immigrant artist, China, United States
