Centering his research within the dynamic forces of recent East Asian historical past, Kuan-Hsing Chen recasts cultural experiences as a politically pressing international activity. He argues that the highbrow and subjective paintings of decolonization began throughout East Asia after the second one global struggle was once stalled through the chilly battle. while, the paintings of deimperialization grew to become very unlikely to visualize in imperial facilities comparable to Japan and the us. Chen contends that it's now essential to resume these initiatives, and that decolonization, deimperialization, and an highbrow undoing of the chilly battle needs to continue at the same time. Combining postcolonial stories, globalization stories, and the rising box of “Asian stories in Asia,” he insists that these on either side of the imperial divide needs to check the behavior, causes, and results of imperial histories.

Chen is likely one of the most crucial intellectuals operating in East Asia this day; his writing has been influential in Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and mainland China for the earlier fifteen years. As a founding member of the Inter-Asia Cultural reviews Society and its magazine, he has helped to begin swap within the dynamics and highbrow orientation of the area, development 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 helpful new instructions for cultural studies.
