Toward a Critical Internationalism

Toward a Critical Internationalism

Nation, Revolt, and Performance in I Hotel

(p.147) Six Toward a Critical Internationalism
Across Meridians
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the issue of critical internationalism in Karen Tei Yamashita's novel I Hotel. It suggests that this novel represents Yamashita's re-visioning of the Asian American social movement of the 1960s and 1970s through the lens of critical internationalism and her attempt to negotiate the temporal gap between movement politics and current discourses on transnationality in Asian American cultural studies. The chapter also discusses the shift in Yamashita's representational focus in this novel and suggests that the architectonics of her transnational imagination is more complex than it is often made to seem.

Keywords:   I Hotel, Karen Tei Yamashita, social movement, critical internationalism, transnationality, movement politics
