about this item

Roland Sintos Coloma and Gordon Pon’s Asian Canadian Studies Reader brings together essential writings by leading and emerging scholars in the field to explore the vibrancy of the diverse Asian diaspora in Canada. The Reader is the perfect textbook for undergraduate courses in Race and Ethnic Studies and the Sociology of Migration.

 The volume is organized into four main: themes ethnic, intersectional, comparative, and transnational encounters. It critically engages topics regarding orientalism, settler colonialism, globalization, and nationalism. Each groundbreaking essay challenges our conventional understandings of diversity and multiculturalism by tackling the intricacies of racism and racialization. By capturing the rich diversity within Asian Canadian communities, Coloma and Pon dispel the perceptions of Asians as always immigrants, newcomers, or model minorities. The Asian Canadian Studies Reader is the first interdisciplinary collection of essays intended for undergraduate use about Canada’s largest racialized minority group.
