The Chinese Diaspora in South Africa: The Gray Area

Authors

  • Ann Williams University of Alabama

Abstract

The study of the Chinese diaspora’s experience in South Africa helps to focus on a specific dimension of diasporic studies, contributing to the field as a whole and increasing the academic reach of diaspora research. This topic elucidates the state’s manipulation of race for political means, investigates the machinations of systemic white supremacy, and uses Freud’s narcissism of minor differences as a lens to explore the effect of such racist policies upon a diaspora’s lived experience.
