Ornamentalism

by Anne Anlin Cheng

$0.00

Ornamentalism offers what is arguably the first sustained theory of Asiatic feminism, filling a glaring absence in critical theory
The book brings legal history, cinematic history, and art history into a dynamic conversation while proposing a brand new way to approach the well-rehearsed problems of racial and sexual commodification and objectification. Anne Anlin Cheng Supplies original readings of previously overlooked materials: one of the most important habeas corpus cases of the 19th century, a fashion show at the Metropolitan Museum, a film by one of the great “race actresses” of the 20th century, and more.
