The H.M.S. Ernaad: the King of the Seas, Servant to Capitalism - Bombay to Hong Kong and Beyond

Taken from work on the first book length survey of Asian American maritime history. The project expands upon the inter-imperial history of Chinese, Filipino and South Asian migration beyond the constructs of immigration and citizenship. In this revisionist design, the research establishes a trans-colonial historical framework to examine the development of maritime traditions that came to inform the patterns of Asian seafaring and maritime occupations migration encountered by Americans from the eighteenth century onward. These histories unmoor Asian America from its continental preoccupation.
