dc.description.abstractThis paper explores the complex structures of ethnic mobility in Filipino American writer Carlos Bulosan's America Is in the Heart. The protagonist Carlos's active pursuit of a national ideal during the course of his journey is enhanced by the structure of feelings produced in the intimate encounters between the colonizers and colonized. I draw upon Ann Laura Stoler's conceptualization of “tense and tender tie” and Sara Ahmed's exposition of politics of emotion to analyze the complex ways in which these intimate encounters help suture the gaps and contradictions between the peril of the Filipino migrant worker in a racist society that sees him as hypersexual, beast-like, and unfit for assimilation, and his steadfast faith in the Nation. This subtle biopolitical governance of the U.S. imperialism over the colonial/migrant bodies assures the double command of the empire which includes the colonized in the form of exclusion, or excludes in the form of inclusion and renders the trace of governance invisible. Bulosan's text seeks to expose the racism and injustice of the nation, but the force of resistance is often compromised by the biopolitical governance of empire. This imperial “haunting” characterizes Filipino American literary tradition at its seminal stage, and remains an important subject of reflection in subsequent Filipino American literary intervention.en_US
