    摘要: This chapter takes an interdisciplinary approach to explore the thematic concern
    of Karen Tei Yamashita’s Tropic of Orange, mostly from the perspectives of
    ecocriticism and cultural studies. As a third-generation Japanese American writer,
    Yamashita tends to write with a mission to represent the diasporic experiences of
    Asian and Latino immigrants in the United States, with a focus on their revelation
    of a fluid sense of self and their inclination to mediate between two distinct
    cultures. The increasing impact of globalisation poses new challenges to these
    immigrants in their efforts to cope with the problems of displacement and
    assimilation in the course of migration and inhabitation, which are among the
    main issues raised in Tropic of Orange. Yamashita’s diasporic worldview is
    explicitly divulged by her depiction of seven characters who represent prototypes
    of a universal phenomenon of border-crossing and displacement in Los Angeles
    and Mexico in the 1980s. This chapter points out the negative impact of corporate
    globalisation on local people, which is reflected in the blurred boundary between
    aspects of consensual reality and the concepts of space and time, along with the
    confusion of individual, ethnic, and cultural identifications. What Yamashita
    delineates is a teletopia without sense of time and place, with the features of
    displacement and hybridity exemplified by the seven characters in Tropic of
