Woman and Chinese modernity : the politics of reading between West and East by Rey Chow( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live in an era in which the critique of the West has become not only possible but mandatory. Where does this critique leave those peoples whose entry into culture is, precisely because of the history of Western imperialism, already Westernized? This is the primary question Rey Chow addresses in Woman and Chinese Modernity."--Book cover

Sentimental fabulations, contemporary Chinese films : attachment in the age of global visibility by Rey Chow( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the sentimental? In contemporary Chinese films, the author argues, the sentimental consistently takes the form not of revolution but of compromise, not of radical departure but of moderation, endurance, and accommodation. She presents Chinese cinema first and foremost as an invitation to the pleasures and challenges of critical thinking
The protestant ethnic and the spirit of capitalism by Rey Chow( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In late-capitalist Western society, cross-ethnic cultural transactions are an inevitable daily routine. Yet, according to acclaimed cultural critic Rey Chow, the notion of ethnicity as it is currently used is theoretically ambivalent, confusing, indeed self-contradictory, straddling as it does an uneasy boundary between a universalist rhetoric of inclusion on the one hand, and actual, lived experiences of violence and intolerance on the other. To drastically reconceptualize ethnicity in the contemporary world, Chow proposes that it be examined in conjunction with Max Weber's famous theor
Ethics after idealism : theory, culture, ethnicity, reading by Rey Chow( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Ethics after Idealism, Rey Chow explores once again the issue of cultural otherness that has been central to her work. She argues that at a time when cultural identity has become imbricated with the way we read our many "others," what must be examined critically is no longer identity politics per se but the idealism - especially in the sense of idealizing otherness - that lies at the heart of identity politics. Recognizing the necessity for a critique of idealism constitutes for Chow an ethics in the postcolonial, postmodern age
The age of the world target : self-referentiality in war, theory, and comparative work by Rey Chow( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martin Heidegger once wrote that the world had, in the age of modern science, become a world picture. For Rey Chow, the world has, in the age of atomic bombs, become a world target, to be attacked once it is identified, or so global geopolitics, dominated by the United States since the end of the Second World War, seems repeatedly to confirm. How to articulate the problematics of knowledge production with this aggressive targeting of the world? Chow attempts such an articulation by probing the significance of the chronological proximity of area studies, poststructuralist theory, and comparative literature -- fields of inquiry that have each exerted considerable influence but whose mutual implicatedness as postwar U.S. academic phenomena has seldom been theorized. Central to Chowʹs discussions is a critique of the predicament of self-referentiality -- the compulsive move to interiorize that, in her view, constitutes the collective frenzy of our age -- in different contemporary epistemic registers, including the self-consciously avant-garde as well as the militaristic and culturally supremacist. Urging her readers to think beyond the inward-turning focus on EuroAmerica that tends to characterize even the most radical gestures of Western self-deconstruction, Chow envisions much broader intellectual premises for future transcultural work, with reading practices aimed at restoring words and things to their constitutive exteriority. -- Back cover

The Rey Chow reader by Rey Chow( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rey Chow is arguably one of the most prominent intellectuals working in the humanities today. Characteristically confronting both entrenched and emergent issues in the interlocking fields of literature, film and visual studies, sexuality and gender, postcolonialism, ethnicity, and cross-cultural politics, her works produce surprising connections among divergent topics at the same time as they compel us to think through the ethical and political ramifications of our academic, epistemic, and cultural practices. This anthology - the first to collect key moments in Chow's engaging

Not like a native speaker : on languaging as a postcolonial experience by Rey Chow( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the era of European colonialism has long passed, misgivings about the inequality of the encounters between European and non-European languages persist in many parts of the postcolonial world. This unfinished state of affairs, this lingering historical experience of being caught among unequal languages, is the subject of Rey Chow''s book. A diverse group of personae, never before assembled in a similar manner, make their appearances in the various chapters: the young mulatto happening upon a photograph about skin color in a popular magazine; the man from Martinique hearing himself named "Negro" in public in France; call center agents in India trained to Americanize their accents while speaking with customers; the Algerian Jewish philosopher reflecting on his relation to the French language; African intellectuals debating the pros and cons of using English for purposes of creative writing; the translator acting by turns as a traitor and as a mourner in the course of cross-cultural exchange; Cantonese-speaking writers of Chinese contemplating the politics of food consumption; radio drama workers straddling the forms of traditional storytelling and mediatized sound broadcast. In these riveting scenes of speaking and writing imbricated with race, pigmentation, and class demarcations, Chow suggests, postcolonial languaging becomes, de facto, an order of biopolitics. The native speaker, the fulcrum figure often accorded a transcendent status, is realigned here as the repository of illusory linguistic origins and unities. By inserting British and post-British Hong Kong (the city where she grew up) into the languaging controversies that tend to be pursued in Francophone (and occasionally Anglophone) deliberations, and by sketching the fraught situations faced by those coping with the specifics of using Chinese while negotiating with English, Chow not only redefines the geopolitical boundaries of postcolonial inquiry but also demonstrates how such inquiry must articulate historical experience to the habits, practices, affects, and imaginaries based in sounds and scripts
