This chapter looks at the case of Bridge magazine (1971–1985) and the emergence of Asian American literary studies in Asia since the late 1980s. While a review of Bridge can reveal the process of foreign students' Asian American becoming, an examination of Asian American studies in Asia can shed light on the role of foreign students and scholars as transnational agents in imagining and inhabiting Asian America as both a critical project within American culture and an academic discourse that transcends American borders. Both endeavors provide insight into the cultural politics of Asian American transnationality as evolving from and working through the tension between nativism and diasporism, as well as between America's imperial outreach and Asia's desire for America.
