Counterhistories of Asian American Media: Lana Lin and the Aesthetics of Degeneration

Eve Oishi, Claremont Graduate University

This paper proposes a reading of Asian American history in relation to the history of visual media technologies. It examines Lana Lin's 1999 video Taiwan Video Club and the aesthetics of analog video as a medium that encodes the migrations, translations, and global networks of the late twentieth century.
