The introductory chapter begins with a review of the literature on international marriages from Asia and within Asia, and then covers the literature on marriage immigrants. The chapter explains politics of belonging as the main theoretical framework, which links the political and the emotional. It discusses the intersections of intimacy and care, anxiety, and gratitude with hierarchies of gender, class, nationality, and race, and how these emotions can shape marriage immigrants’ sense of belonging to Korean society. It also describes the author’s subjectivity as a researcher with focus on the author’s liminal position in the field. The chapter concludes with an overview of the remaining chapters.
