Chi Vu


This essay explores contemporary transnationalism through the creative texts written by Vietnamese-born 1.5 Generation authors residing in the USA, in order to define the generational impact on this emerging literature. I use post-colonial translation theory to examine how the process of migration produces a cultural and linguistic gap for these authors in relation to their readership, and to identify the creative strategies used by these authors in response to it.
