Abstract

Mariko Asano Tamanoi explores the fixity and fluidity of racial and national categories that emerged in the process of Japanese colonization of Manchuria in the 1930s and 1940s. She concentrates in particular on the "officializing" practices and procedures that the "Japanese" agents of colonization pursued in classifying the different "races" and peoples inhabiting this northeast region of China. The author argues that Japanese colonial racism defined in the Japanese empire-and continues to define in contemporary Japan- "Japanese" and "Japaneseness" in complex and even contradictory ways.
