摘要: ABSTRACT Overarching this thesis is an interdisciplinary project that marries social studies and literary theories to re-examine Asian American studies in transitioning from Americentric criticism into a 'subjectless discourse.' Responding to such aim, Lawrence Chua's 1998 novel Gold by the Inch envisions Southeast Asia as a radically untapped resource for new trajectories in the field. The novel calls for a deconstructive reading because time and again, the reader experiences estrangement from its depiction of fragmented worlds and a sense of detachment recounted by the nameless protagonist. Chua's narrative strategy to defamiliarize the reader from such intimacy underscores the conundrum brought forth by today's global capitalism in forging definitive personal, cultural, or sexual identity of a diasporan. In Chapter One, I undertake an analysis of the concept of belonging in the form of identity and home, both of which are as fluid and heterogeneous as migrant subjects come to acknowledge in their diasporic experiences. Chapter Two focuses on the mechanism of neocolonial capital dictating the modernization imperatives in Southeast Asia imposed by the nation-states alongside global agencies, while at the same time dehumanizes the landless locals and exposes the predicament of laboring bodies in the international division of labor. Chapter Three discusses the intervention of advanced capitalism in the fashioning of queer culture, sexuality, and subjectivity in queer capitals that results in the commodification of such desire. Taken together, this thesis suggests a reinvigorated framework to address the problematics of return narrative by foregrounding transnational space as a fertile ground from which identity and belonging can be envisaged, as well as by reevaluating iterations of queer culture at the juncture of a transnational age. Keywords: Lawrence Chua, Gold by the Inch, diaspora, identity, capitalism, queer
摘要 本論文係結合社會學與文學理論的跨學科計畫,重新審視長久以來圍繞著大美國主義的批判轉換為「無主體論述」的亞美研究。應對此目標,蔡明亮(Lawrence Chua)一九九八年的小說《以寸售金》設想東南亞為尚未發掘且對亞美文學領域具有開發新軌跡的潛在資源。該小說之所以需以解構法閱讀詮釋,即是因為讀者總能感受到小說中無名氏主角描繪他經歷的分散世界所帶來的疏遠及脫離感。透過陌生化讀者與小說離散中的男同志主角的親密關係,作者的敘事策略呈現今天全球資本主義的入侵之下鍛造明確的自我、文化、以及性別認同的困境。 本論文分成三大章節。第一章分析身份認同和「家」為歸屬感的主要概念,兩者在移民者的離散經驗中所體會到的是同樣流動且異質的。第二章著重於新殖民資本主義的機制運作。東南亞本土的現代化與進展受新殖民資本主義主宰且受民族國家與國際組織的介入,同時使無土地所有權的當地人去人性化,揭露了勞動力在國際分工的窘境。第三章則探討更進階的資本主義在同志首都裏干預其酷兒文化、性別、和主體性的塑造,使同志慾望商品化。總之,為了解決回歸敘事中所面臨的問題點,本論文嘗試提出新的框架,藉由跨國空間的前景作為沃土並且通過重新設想酷兒文化的迭代,便能於現今的跨國時代達到認同及歸屬感的想像。 關鍵字:蔡明亮、《以寸售金》、離散、身份認同、資本主義、酷兒
