The Chinese Exotic

Olivia Khoo

Hong Kong University Press

This concluding chapter employs the metaphor of the heliotrope to characterize the Chinese exotic's regional turn towards a self-conscious Asian region. It also attempts to situate the Chinese exotic in relation to the larger systems that give it meaning and value, such as the cinema, popular fiction, food, and fashion cultures, and increasingly, the intra-regional interactions constructing the modern formation of Asia.

Keywords:   heliotrope, Chinese exotic, Asian region, cinema, popular fiction, food, fashion
