      Abstract

      In the context of global transformations, the analysis of cultural production can
      be a fruitful way of eviscerating the complex negotiations of identity
      construction for what Stuart Hall calls ‘new ethnicities’ (1988). The
      sociological study of creative literature is an area that has been little explored
      and holds the possibility of offering significant insights into the strategies and
      ideologies of identity. This chapter offers a comparative study of contemporary
      Chinese American and British Chinese literature to uncover how the processes
      of identity construction in narrative fiction are shaped by their different
      national and political contexts.
