Explores the impact of representations of race on the recent history of Asian empires—a history in which race has often been elided. Building on an examination of the production and circulation of an affect of racial difference in East Asia, discussions will open a comparative engagement with histories of the representation of race under imperial regimes in other regions and periods.
