Review: Porous Borders: Multiracial Migrations and the Law in the U.S.–Mexico Borderlands by Julian Lim
Jian Gao is a Ph.D. student in the Department of History at the University of Texas at Austin. His dissertation, tentatively titled ‘‘Re-imagining Borders: The Transpacific Chinese Mexicans during the Tumultuous Early Twentieth Century,’’ examines the ways in which Chinese Mexicans utilized transpacific contact and communications between China and Mexico to forge a transpacific borderland that provided them with relief from Mexican antichinismo. His 2019 article, ‘‘Restoring the Chinese Voice during Mexican Sinophobia, 1919–1934,’’ (The Latin Americanist, 63.1, forthcoming), explores the responses and resistance of Chinese Mexicans, both in China and Mexico, toward Mexican anti-Chinese violence. This article is currently a finalist for the Edward H. Moseley Student Paper Award administered by the Southeastern Council of Latin American Studies (SECOLAS).
