The novel phenomenon of the Chinese in Serbia has endured in both urban and rural settings in Serbia for over 20 years (Korańá, 2013). To explore the position of the Chinese in Serbia, Professor Rucker-Chang engages with the Asian American Studies concept of “perpetual foreigner.” Situating the term in Serbia reveals important insights into regional racial formations as they relate to the position of the Chinese community. This concept also provides insights into the situatedness of other groups such as those who are called “Black” as opposed to those who remain unmarked, ostensibly the “Serbs.”

 

This event is part of the HRI Research Cluster "Russia and the Global Color Line."
