a nod to global nodes

There is some cool stuff happening in Oz. Here’s a performance artist/writer from Down Under who does some really interesting racegender twisty stuff. I especially like the story about suitmation:
Tom Cho

Found out about him from Deborah Madsen, a Switzerland-based Canadianist who has written a very thoughtful entry on my work for the Greenwood Encyclopedia of Asian American Writers. (I’m not sure how I feel about the way we racialized Canucks become American overseas, but it seems to be standard practice.)

Enjoying these global connections. Thinking through a piece now on the newly privileged (but also reified) mobility of certain kinds of racialization and the exceptional abuse of kindred kinds.
