A History of Chinese Settlers in Peru in the 19th and 20th Centuries

A book-length study of the Chinese Peruvian settlers and merchants during the 19th and 20th centuries.

“Intimate Others: Peruvian Chinese Between Native Place, Nation and World” recovers the trans-Pacific and Global South histories of Cantonese settlers in Peru between the late 19th and mid-20th centuries. Migrating when Anglo-Saxon settler colonial practices inspired migration, nation making and empire across the world, Cantonese pursued new labor, commercial and agricultural opportunities in Peru that brought material and cultural benefits to their native places and expanded a Cantonese Pacific world. Deploying a translocal methodology grounded in multi-scalar analysis, “Intimate Others” explores how Cantonese in Peru positioned themselves in relation to the native places, nations and worlds their lives brought together.
