Pedagogies of the Japanese Diaspora: Racialization and Sexualization in Australia

Migration, Diaspora and Identity pp 141-155, Springer

The Japanese diaspora in Australia comprises disjunctive histories of migration, settlement, internment, repatriation and transnationalism. The focus on Japanese women in this chapter underlines the significance of racialization and sexualization in the distinctive historical and cultural circumstances of the Japanese diaspora. Racialization and sexualization are understood here as fundamentally pedagogical practices; dynamic and constitutive, they comprise genres of knowledge production and regulation, as well as innovative repertoires of social practice. They are processes by which Japanese migrants learn to live in, and across, cultures and identities and Japanese and Asian in Australia.
