Formatted Abstract/Summary
...The writing of Asian Australian (women) writers is at this point being engaged with by, and in relation to, some dynamic currents in Australian Studies; to the new field of Asian Australian Studies; to Asian Studies as well; and to work in neo-Postcolonial Studies—all of this informed by a substantial influence of Gender Studies and other cognate areas including Whiteness Theory. The ways in which this interpretive meltingpot interacts with international currents and emphases in the reading of diasporic and transnational literatures has also had input into how these texts are being understood as a powerful and important dimension among what Australian Literature can claim as its significant currents at the present time.

20 世纪末以来,亚裔妇女作家在澳大利亚兴起成为一个独具特色的创作群体。她们的创作往往被视为一股多元文化力量,既是对传统"白澳"观念的挑战,同时也推动了多元、异质的澳大利亚文化认同的形成。作者在此文中围绕亚裔妇女文学及其新近批评情况,采用动态的历史抗评观,反思了在澳大利亚研究、亚裔澳大利亚研究、多元文化主义、1 身份研究等研究领域内对亚裔妇女文学创作僵化和单一的解读模式。作者认为,在全球化条件下,作为离散文学,澳大利亚亚裔妇女文学创作事实上要复杂得多,它们与澳大利亚主流权力和话语之间既对抗又迎合,并且还受到以唐,恩美为首的美国亚裔文学先例的影响。
