Keyword:  夏威夷契约华工种族歧视“越界”汤亭亭《中国佬》种植园铁路华工;
Abstract: 论文以美国华裔作家汤亭亭的作品《中国佬》为文本,在当时种族歧视的社会历史语境中,探讨了以伯公和阿公为代表的契约华工抗争和“越界”的行为与策略.以伯公为代表的夏威夷种植园契约华工以“捣蛋鬼”的形象,通过制造麻烦来拒绝被驯化,逾越“不许说话”的戒律;以阿公为代表的铁路契约华工,则通过罢工来争取和白人同工同酬的待遇.他们的“越界”行为既是对华工主体性的宣示,也是对现有契约华工历史话语的一种反拨.正是在不停地跨越或隐或明的边界的过程中,华人才逐步扩展自己在海外的生存空间,改变主流社会对华人的刻板印象.
