Abstract:The Great Country of Asia is a collection of five short stories — “Café-22,” “The Avocado Tree,” “In Fashion,” “The Neighbor,” and “Where We Are,” each with an Asian American protagonist at its center. The stories are cultural critiques that tackle themes exclusive to critical theory like typecasting, the relationship between visibility and silence, Orientalism, and more. Within this project you will find stories that address the elements and major works that had paved the foundation for the creative work that I wanted to write, as well as acknowledge the necessity for representation of Asian American stories in Western media. These stories are created with the intent to share a dialogue, contributing to a bigger conversation, and not be the singular definition of it.
