This paper examines the spatial narration of Ursula K. Le Guin's American Taoist “home” by analyzing “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas,” City of Illusions and other Hainish SFs. Suggesting that the European binary opposition is the cause of violence in Le Guin's Omelas, the paper considers the necessity of deconstructing the binary opposition by installing the Taoist thought. The paper further investigates the features of Le Guin's “home” in her Hainish SFs. Le Guin has taken a long journey to reconstruct her Taoist “home” for over 40 years. However, her Taoist home is not a complete mimic of Lao Tzu's Taoism, but is instead an American adaption.

Since the 2000s, the proportion of racial minorities in the U.S. Congress has grown rapidly and has begun to reach the “critical mass” that allows them to express independent opinions. In addition, President Barack Obama's election and BLM movements triggered the “black” identity politics. Consequently, the Democratic Party has begun to face internal confrontation by racial minority groups with which it has coalesced: the larger the size of minority members in the House (especially African-Americans), the more they have been prone to vote against the party's mainstream opinions. Furthermore, the racial confrontation has undermined the cooperation of female lawmakers; African-American female lawmakers have shown more similar voting behavior to African-American male lawmakers, and white female lawmakers have shown more similar voting behavior to white male lawmakers. However, such divisions within the Democratic Party were limited to the House of Representatives where racial minorities have grown significantly. In the Senate, the confrontation was not remarkable.

This paper investigates the crisis of the U.S. collective bargaining platform during the 1960s. The collective bargaining platform, created as a key political institution to guarantee industrial peace in the New Deal era, became dysfunctional in face of technological changes of the 1950s and 1960s. U.S. labor conflicted with U.S. management over the ways in which the outmoded institution could be updated to meet new challenges. This paper analyzes the labor-management conflicts in a tripartite experiment under Kennedy and the political dynamics it created to better understand the rise of industrial pluralism and industrial adversarialism that characterizes U.S. industrial relations.

This essay explores how Louise Erdrich's The Painted Drum represents the Anishinaabe worldview of “the good life” (mino-bimaadiziwin) and its significance for the Ojibwes' survival as it focuses on the eponymous drum as a non-human thing and its interrelations with other people who suffer losses all on their own. The essay argues that The Painted Drum envisions the Ojibwes' recovery from their personal and communal losses through their awakening to the idea of “connection” within Anishinaabe mino-bimaadiziwin: the connection between humans and non-humans, death and life, destruction and creation, transcendence and immanence. Reifying such diverse connections, the novel invites the reader to acknowledge the conception of the relational world and the necessity of respecting all animate and inanimate beings.

Prior studies on A Gesture Life primarily revolve around Franklin Hata and occasionally touch on Kkutaeh, leaving Hata's adopted daughter Sunny largely overlooked or circumscribed to Hata's perspective. This paper draws on Sara Ahmed's conception of the happy object and the futility of tracing Sunny's narrative and the affective subversion that it exerts on Hata's bid for assimilationist happiness against a predominantly white backdrop. The paper re-reads Sunny's rebelliousness and supposed inability to adjust to life within Hata's social circle as precarious yet persistent forces that destabilize Hata's attempt to achieve the unattainable happiness of belonging as defined by those for whom happiness and belonging function as rituals of exclusion. The paper argues that Sunny's subversive presence redirects Hata's self-defeating single-mindedness toward alternative possibilities of being and connection outside the confines of the American Dream, thereby expanding the articulation and imagination of minority communities in Asian American literature.
