520    "In our global era, conceptions and experiences of 
       identity, nationality, personhood, and family are in flux,
       yet many of the ways that lives are lived, and the 
       stereotypes and cultural imperialism that provide a 
       framework for postmodern life, presume fixed 
       characteristics that allow for an easy response to 
       difficult questions. Growing Up Transnational challenges 
       the assumptions behind this fixed framework while looking 
       at the interconnectivity, conflict, and contradictions 
       within current discussions of identity and kinship. This 
       collection offers a fresh, feminist perspective on family 
       relations, identity politics, and cultural locations in a 
       global era. Using an interdisciplinary approach from 
       fields such as gender studies, queer studies, postcolonial
       theory, and literary theory, the volume addresses the 
       concept of hybridity and the tangible implications of 
       assumed identities. The rich personal narratives of the 
       authors examine hyphenated identities, hybridized families,
       and the challenges and rewards of lives on and beyond 
       borders. The result is a new transnational sensibility 
       that explores the redefinition of the self, the family, 
       and the nation."--|cProvided by publisher.
