Toward a Minor-Native Epistemology in Transcolonial Borderzones
This concluding chapter demonstrates an exemplary case of transcolonial performance by reconstructing Woon Ping's Details Cannot Body Wants, a Peranakan (Straits Chinese) Asian/American solo woman show. By deviating from the conventional hetero-orientalist scenario by setting the brown woman next to other minor scenarios in native and ethnic studies, as well as postcolonial and queer studies, the transcolonial paradigm of tradition results in an alternative set of analytics for the Asian boy and Asian woman. It suggests that the “jumps” of Asian/America, Native America, and Southeast Asia, in the Asias can potentially exceed even the dyads examined in the study throughout the book.
