    • In other words what is the tension between a transnational understanding of globalization and a persistent sense of place consciousness in such a practice?

Language action

Language & action

Beyond Master’s tools & master’s house


Culture as mediation pt 1

Culture as mediation, pt 1

  • Narrative, testimony, oral history as powerful cultural forms of mediation because they enable understanding of individual subjectivity and larger social forces (156)

    • Cannot be valorized as transparent record of reality – reveals subjectivity of individual

    • Cannot be dismissed either as completely relative fiction – grounded in material experience of larger social forces

    • Cannot be solely reduced to individualistic experience

    • Cannot be seen as totally determined by larger social forces either


Culture as mediation pt 2

Culture as mediation, pt 2

  • Narrative, testimony, & oral history make possible alternative frameworks of “politicization” (Lowe 158)

  • “The particular location of racialized working women at an intersection where the contradictions of racism, patriarchy, and capitalism converge produces a subject that cannot be determined along a single axis of power or by a single apparatus, on the one hand, or contained within a single narrative of oppositional political formation, on the other” (Lowe 164)


Discussion questions

Discussion questions

  • According to AudreLorde, what are “the master’s tools”? What is the “master’s house”? And why can’t those tools be used to dismantle that house?

  • Why does Lowe insist that an attention to “difference” as evoked by AudreLorde’s speech on “Master’s Tools” is crucial for Asian immigrant and Asian “American” women?

  • How do the narratives, testimonies, & oral histories of Asian “American” women transform silence into language and action?
