War Baby / Love Childexamines hybrid Asian American identity through a collection of essays, artworks, and interviews at the intersection of critical mixed race studies and contemporary art. The book pairs artwork and interviews with 19 emerging, mid-career, and established mixed race/mixed heritage Asian American artists, including Li-lan and Kip Fulbeck, with scholarly essays exploring such topics as Vietnamese Amerasians, Korean transracial adoptions, and multiethnic Hawai'i. As an increasingly ethnically ambiguous Asian American generation is coming of age in an era of "optional identity," this collection brings together first-person perspectives and a wider scholarly context to shed light on changing Asian American cultures.Laura Kinais associate professor of art, media, and design at DePaul University.Wei Ming Dariotisis assistant professor of Asian American studies at San Francisco State University."War Baby / Love Childis an interesting, original, and innovative project that expands the field of Asian American studies by using visual art as a point of entry and analysis for the discipline."-Mark Johnson, editor ofAsian American Art: A History, 1850-1970"One of the strengths of this original volume is its holistic combination of interviews with premier fine artists along with the textual, historical, and scholarly context provided by established and emerging scholars in Asian American Studies."-Nitasha Sharma, author ofHip Hop Desis: South Americans, Blackness, and Global Race Consciousness
