As a meditation on our longing for relationality across time and rupture, “Exiled Memory” examines the relationship between history, memory, and identity in the Southeast Asian diaspora. It situates the politics and art of remembering against the ravages of genocide and displacement and the negotiations of resettlement, and problematizes the notion of “return” that is central to the exilic desire.
