The mission of positions: east asia cultures critique is to offer a forum of debate for all concerned with the social, intellectual, and political events unfolding in East Asia and within the Asian diaspora.

This speical issue was a result of an academic conference at the University of California, Irvine in October 1999. The selected essays articulate the discrepant, the non-normative, the traumatic, and the scandalous in the films' rendition of the Asia/Pacific.
