NOOK Book. At the heart of the model minority myth—often associated with Asian Americans—is the concept of civility.

Visual Language Is Language: The Importance of Reading the Pictures in Visual Culture

In this groundbreaking book, Picturing Model Citizens , Thy Phu exposes the complex links between civility and citizenship, and argues that civility plays a crucial role in constructing Asian American citizenship. Through an examination of photographs of Chinese immigrants, Japanese internment camps, the Hiroshima Maidens project, napalm victims, and the SARS epidemic, Phu explores civility's unexpected appearance in images that draw on discourses of intimacy, cultivation, apology, and hygiene.

She reveals how Asian American visual culture illustrates not only cultural ideas of civility, but also contests the contradictions of state-defined citizenship. She is editor of the Americas region for the journal Photography and Culture , and co-editor with Elspeth Brown of a collection of essays entitled Feeling Photography. See All Customer Reviews.
