Summary
"In our global era, conceptions and experiences of identity, nationality, personhood, and family are in flux, yet many of the ways that lives are lived, and the stereotypes and cultural imperialism that provide a framework for postmodern life, presume fixed characteristics that allow for an easy response to difficult questions. Growing Up Transnational challenges the assumptions behind this fixed framework while looking at the interconnectivity, conflict, and contradictions within current discussions of identity and kinship. This collection offers a fresh, feminist perspective on family relations, identity politics, and cultural locations in a global era. Using an interdisciplinary approach from fields such as gender studies, queer studies, postcolonial theory, and literary theory, the volume addresses the concept of hybridity and the tangible implications of assumed identities. The rich personal narratives of the authors examine hyphenated identities, hybridized families, and the challenges and rewards of lives on and beyond borders. The result is a new transnational sensibility that explores the redefinition of the self, the family, and the nation."--
