Abstract

In media culture, representation of minorities tends on the side of stereotype and erasure. Especially South Asian American identities in particular are either nonexistent, or full of model minority tropes. Within this project, I hoped to analyze primary points of similarity and difference between Ansari’s Master of None as well as Lahiri’s Unaccustomed Earth in order to take back Indian American representation to the voices of their own people.
