Centering his research within the dynamic forces of recent East Asian historical past, Kuan-Hsing Chen recasts cultural stories as a politically pressing worldwide pastime. He argues that the highbrow and subjective paintings of decolonization began throughout East Asia after the second one international conflict was once stalled by way of the chilly struggle. even as, the paintings of deimperialization turned most unlikely to visualize in imperial facilities corresponding to Japan and the USA. Chen contends that it's now essential to resume these initiatives, and that decolonization, deimperialization, and an highbrow undoing of the chilly struggle needs to continue concurrently. Combining postcolonial experiences, globalization stories, and the rising box of “Asian experiences in Asia,” he insists that these on each side of the imperial divide needs to investigate the behavior, factors, and outcomes of imperial histories.

Chen is likely one of the most vital intellectuals operating in East Asia this present day; his writing has been influential in Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and mainland China for the prior fifteen years. As a founding member of the Inter-Asia Cultural reviews Society and its magazine, he has helped to start up swap within the dynamics and highbrow orientation of the area, construction a community that has facilitated inter-Asian connections. Asia as Method encapsulates Chen’s imaginative and prescient and actions in the more and more “inter-referencing” East Asian highbrow group and charts useful new instructions for cultural studies.
