The Minor Transpacific: A Roundtable Discussion
BC Studies No. 198 (Summer 2018), 13-36.
DOI: https://doi.org/10.14288/bcs.v0i198.190100

Abstract:
Initiated by Simon Fraser University (SFU)’s Institute for Transpacific Cultural Research (ITCR), this roundtable discussion amongst cultural studies researchers from parts of Asia, Australia, and Canada reflects on the “minor transpacific” as an alternative regional imaginary that provides new reference points and collaborative opportunities for research. The roundtable participants discuss “transpacific” as an analytic and how the notion is inflected by  their experiences of living and working from “minor” locations. They also reflect on their experiences visiting, working, or living in Vancouver, B.C.,  and how their conversations with scholars based in the B.C region, their exposure to regional histories and debates, and their participation in local activities connect to their own transpacific trajectories, both personally and intellectually.
