Asian Americans as the Almost Minority

(p.67) Difference without Grievance

Leslie Bow

University of North Carolina Press

Leslie Bow argues that Asian Americans hold a precarious place in the American imagination and within academic institutions as well. The simultaneous erasure and celebration of cultural difference, its uncertain capital, and the ambiguity about where Asian Americans stand in the in the history of social injury and its redress are, Bow explains, all inseparable from the ways in which they are located on American campuses. In her essay, she explores the ways in which this climate might impact the ambiguous place that Asian Americans inhabit within academia as "over-represented" minorities.
