John Jung's curator insight, July 19, 2013 12:56 PM

Prof. Emma Teng's new book,


Eurasian: Mixed Identities in the United States, China, and Hong Kong, 1842-1943 emphasizes that relationships and marriages between Westerners and Asians are not a modern development, but go back to the 19th century.


"Teng says she hopes the book will help people think critically about the assumptions we still make today when discussing ethnicity and identity. As she puts it,  “I don’t think we’ve moved away as much as we should from biology” as a way of categorizing people. Even “the very discussion of mixed races” as a common feature of today’s world, Teng says, still implies that ethnic populations were simply homogenous 50 or 100 years ago. As her book reminds us, history says otherwise."
