“The In/visibility of Race: Mixed-Race Chinese Americans during the Exclusion Era” interrogates the experiences of mixed-race Chinese American families during the years of Chinese exclusion, 1875-1943. Drawing on a piece of my dissertation, “Race, Space, and Gender: Re-mapping a Chinese American from the Margins, 1975-1943,” I read through the archives left by the anti-Chinese measures of the U.S. gate-keeping state. In this presentation, I use the history of Charlie Stewart Cue as a case study of intimate interraciality in small town America at the turn of century and as an example of the erasure of not only these spaces but also of biraciality from the narrative of Chinese America.
