The eight articles in this section of JTAS, Volume 10, Number 2, form a Festschrift to honor Shirley Geok-lin Lim, the distinguished Asian American poet, professor of English at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and one of the founders of the Journal of Transnational American Studies. Lim was born in British Malaya during the period of Japanese Occupation (1942–45), in a culturally mixed Chinese Hokkien-Peranakan family in the historical town of Malacca in southwestern Malaysia, layered with British, Dutch, and Portuguese footprints left in forts, museums, churches, and other colonial structures. After completing her undergraduate study in English Literature at the University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Lim chose to travel to the United States in 1969 on a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue a PhD at Brandeis University.
