AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Katherine Hallemeier employs a close reading of Rey Chow's essay "The Secrets of Ethic Abjection' (2012) and Brian Castro's autobiographical essays in Looking for Estrellita (1999) and his fictional autobiography Shanghai Dancing (2003) and argues that both authors 'are similar insofar as their writing challenges essentialist understanding of hybrid identity by in fact straddling the genres of autobiography and theory'.
